Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Great Inagua is the most important location in the video game developed by Ubisoft, because Great Inagua serves as a hideout for Edward and his pirates.
Great Inagua is a location unlocked by playing the main missions featured in the game. The island is controlled by Julien du Casse, but after his demise, Edward becomes the owner of the island, and all its facilities.
Taking control of the island is important because you will also be able to unlock the Templar Hunt series of missions, which will lead you to a unique outfit.
Unlike other major locations, Great Inagua includes a series of facilities that can be purchased and upgraded, such as the tavern and the harbor.
Furthermore, Edward’s mansion can also be upgraded to unlock a series of Abstergo challenges. Great Inagua doesn’t include any restricted areas, but it includes multiple collectibles.
The following guide explains how to find them faster.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Great Inagua Secrets Locations
Secret 1: Letter
The first secret in Great Inagua is a letter (On My Name And Origin) which can be found inside a bottle on the southern beach.
When you get close to its location, look for several pirates digging for a treasure and get close to the water to spot the collectible.
Secret 2: Cadaver
The second secret is also the most important because it is a treasure map you can collect from a cadaver. The treasure map in Great Inagua is located inside a cave, close to the docks.
The cave can be accessed by climbing several trees and jumping from one branch to another. Walk around the perimeter and look for a downed tree that can be used as a ramp to get inside the cave.
Once you have found the treasure map, open it and notice that there are two coordinates (633,784), as well as an image showing a house.
The treasure map in Great Inagua and its coordinates point to Nassau, while the image shows the western viewpoint you have to synchronize. The viewpoint is close to the swampy area in Nassau.
When you get there, move towards the water and look for a tree similar to a ramp, which allows you to ascend one level, and get close to the house.
The digging spot is at the bottom of the downed tree. When you open the buried treasure chest in Nassau you will find 3000 Reales and the Grey Sails Design Plan.
