NEW YORK, USA (defend.ht) - A survey signed by the connoisseurs of sunny beaches was published by CNN on Tuesday placed Abaka Bay on Ile-a-Vache as the 57th most beautiful beach in the world.

The CNN countdown of World's 100 Best Beaches said of the bay:

The island of Ile a Vache in Haiti punches above its weight in the beach class division -- the eight-by-two-mile island is home to Akaba [sic] Bay, boasting some of the best photo ops in the Caribbean. Quality and good value accommodation line the sands.

Highlight: Abaka Bay Resort provides great views of the ocean, is one step from the beach and serves a mean conch dinner.

GoodNewsHaiti, which shared its thoughts with The Sentinel, recognized the importance placed on this locale by the Minister of Tourism Stephanie Villedrouin, that is seeking to recover Haiti as a place of choice on the tourist map of the World.

GNH, a Haitian based publication, also added:

We know from having visited the country, there are other more beautiful and wonderful sites to explore. Make domestic tourism, taking advantage of this jewel of our country that is and share this wonderful experience by posting comments and stories here, in social media and blogs.
