West End Pond
The pond is a 19 ha brackish lagoon in the West End district, near the south-western end of the main island, and was historically used for salt production. It has a marl substrate and rocky shoreline and is divided by a culverted causeway that provides access to tourism development along the beach at Shoal Bay West. The eastern basin of the pond is roughly circular and about 370 m across, while the western section is longer and narrower. It is mostly surrounded by stands of black, white and buttonwood mangroves.
