The Abaco Islands are in the northern Bahamas and are best visited aboard a yachting vacation in the warmer spring and summer months. The cruising ground with the most diverse activity is in the southern Sea of Abaco, and Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco, and acts as the hub of the Abacos. Start your vacation by flying into Marsh Harbour's airport with daily connections from Nassau and Florida.
Use Marsh Harbour as your base for snorkeling or scuba diving on the long, lush barrier reef that fringes the Out Islands of Abaco. Let the crew tender you to nearby Man Of War, a boat building community with a perfect beach, shops, and island restaurants. Have the Captain dock in Hope Town, Elbow Cay. Climb to the top of the famous candy-stripe lighthouse, stroll quaint picturesque streets, or visit museums, shops, and restaurants. Surfers can catch a few rides on the ocean side of Elbow Cay's White Sound.
Later, anchor at Tahiti Beach to snorkel, or grab lunch at Lubber's Quarters. Then head south toward Lynyard Cay to snorkel the protected reefs at Sandy Cay, visit the artists' colony at Little Harbour, party at Pete's Pub, or look for Blue Holes in the Bight of Old Robinson. And don't forget to head north to Guana Cay for the famous Nipper's Sunday Pig Roast. Everyone will be there! Snorkel the beautiful reefs just off Nipper's Beach, relax in placid Baker's Bay just opposite the quiet lagoon, play golf at Treasure Cay Resort, or swim at its perfect three-mile long beach.Email Us Now - Unbiased advice.
