Great Inagua Island (Bahamas) has Matthew Town as its the only settlement (population around 1000) located on the southwest coast. Among the attractions is the Lighthouse (built 1870). Most of the locals are employed by the US company Morton Salt (based in Chicago Illinois). Morton (subsidiary of K+S AG, Germany) is the leading salt producer and marketer in North America.
Inagua National Park on Great Inagua Island encloses Lake Rosa (see on the map below), which is Bahamas' largest salt-water lake. The park was established in 1965 (formed by the Bahamas National Trust) and has a total area of approx 890 km2 (344 mi2). The park is most famous for having the world's largest populations of West Indian flamingos - over 50,000 birds. This makes Great Inagua a top tourist destination for bird watchers.
