The Pirate’s Well: Mayaguana
The buccaneers that roamed Mayaguana in the past dug this well for drinking and it gave the settlement of Pirate's Well its name. Today, the well is considered just a point of interest for visitors touring the island, but it is well worth stopping here to take in its historical significance. The surroundings are still so rustic that one can imagine what it was like for those who first came there.
A sign clearly marks the location of the well, which is circled by stones and mortar to reduce the amount of debris falling into it. Rocks have been placed in the well to make the water level shallow.
The area has loose pebbles and might not be suitable for wheelchairs.
