Egg Island is an uninhabited island, officially an islet, in the Bahamas. The island has become home to chickens owned by residents of other nearby islands who travel here to collect the eggs. Hence the name, Egg Island. The island has a crescent shaped beach that is protected by a reef that protects the entire beach. The water behind the reef is generally less than 6 feet deep making it a good place to swim or watch the sea life. Since the water is so shallow and well protected, it tends to be warmer then the surrounding sea.
The Bahamian dollar (BSD) is the official unit of currency.
