about abaco

Less than 200 miles from the Florida coast, the Abaco Islands are the hidden jewels of the Bahama. Here, vacationers enjoy legendary fishing and spectacular diving and snorkeling year round. Boaters cruise the 100 mile long Sea of Abaco protected from the Atlantic by reefs and barrier islands. The Abacos are uncrowded and unspoiled with no high rises or gambling. It is a very casual, laid-back, relaxed atmosphere and perfect for vacation getaways and longer stays. The dress is casual and the lifestyle is friendly.

Most visitors to the Abacos arrive by air in Marsh Harbour. A short cab ride from the airport takes you to the harbor where you can catch a ferry (4 trips per day) or rent a boat for the nine mile ride to Guana Cay.

Seven mile long Great Guana Cay has some of the most beautiful
beaches in the Bahamas. Its settlement at the harbor's edge is an equally charming village of colorful Bahamiam homes and island shops.
Fisherman clean their daily catch on nearby docks while locals sit
and converse under their famous fig tree.

Island-hopping is a popular activity. The various cays are about
10-40 minutes apart. Each is unique with a character all its own.
You must see them all. There are numerous deserted cays, coves,
beaches, creeks and bays, just waiting for you to relax and
explore in your runabout.

Beautiful sunny days are the norm any time of the year. Average
high temperatures range between 70-75 degrees from December
to May and 80-85 degrees the rest of the year.

Here's a toast to the coast and the sailors out at sea.
