Watlings Island? This debate has been going on for more that 500 years. The truthis....nobody really knows were Columbus first stepped foot on theNew World. If you want a good guess, most historians have agreed onGuanahani Island which today is known as Watling Island in theBahama's. The reason for …the debate is that Christopher Columbuswas notorious for keeping inaccurate logs on distance throughoutthe first voyage. In fact, Columbus did this on purpose. Columbuswas a sailor who sailed by "Dead Reckoning" and he was an expert atit. As far as a mathematical sailor--- he was not. Columbus didkeep a detailed diary of every day activities. Through this diarylog, it can be determined that the physical description given byColumbus himself (and with his inaccurate but useful position logs)Watlings Island is the most PROBABLE landing site of ChristopherColumbus. To this day there have been search crews combing theBahamas for the wreckage of the Santa Maria which sank by accidenton Christmas, 1492. This would yield indisputable proof of thefirst landfall. Unfortunately, no such wreckage has ever beenfound. The first place Christopher Columbus landed was the CaribbeanIslands. His first attempt at settlement was on Hispaniola. ( Full Answer )

NO. Columbus was trying to reach the 'Spice Islands' The islands off the southern coast of modern India. When he first landed he thought that that was where he was.
