San Salvador Bahamas!

San Salvador is the site where Christopher Columbus landed in 1492. San Salvador has fascinating historical sites which includes one of the best preserved plantations. It is also known under its Indian name of Guanahani.

San Salvador, located 450 miles southeast of Fort Lauderdale, is one of the easternmost island of the Bahamian archipelago. The island is approximately 5 miles wide by 10 miles long, and is surrounded by some of the most prolific fringing reefs in the Caribbean. 

Being remote from general tourism and with a small local population, this pristine island provides a unique environment for studies and research in a diversity of scientific disciplines.

The island is large enough to provide a variety of environments, yet small enough to allow easy access to them. The Field Station is located on the north coast of San Salvador, on the harbor which Columbus described during his first landfall in the New World in 1492 as capable of "...holding all the ships of Christendom".
