The Berry Islands are a cluster of about 30 small islands covering an area of about 30 square miles at the north western end of the Bahamas archipelago. The islands were so named likely because of their geographical layout resembling a cluster of berries though many say they are called the Berry Islands because of the abundance of thatch berry trees found there.
The islands are largely uninhabited and are world renowned for big game fishing, second only to Bimini. The Berries are popular with scuba divers also.
At eight miles long and one and half miles wide Great Harbour Cay is the largest of the Berry Islands and it holds the largest port. Chub Cay, the second largest island in the chain, is known an "the billfish capital of the Bahamas."
