: Where in the Caribbean is Île-à-Vache (Cow Island)?A:
The Île-à-Vache is located south of Haiti. It owes its name to the huge amount of oxen and cows that were found there.
In 1670 Henry Morgan was escorted by 10 vessels with 700 men whose destination was Ile-a-Vache. The ship Henry Morgan that contained a large treasure sank near the Ferret bay to Ile-a-Vache after an explosion, possibly caused during a drinking party held after a successful piracy.
