Drenched with sterns, hulls and bows at every port, it’s no wonder the Abacos islands are considered the “sailing capital” of the world. Most visitors arrive in Abacos by boat, but private flights to Abacos are available from Nassau. Regardless of how you get to Abacos, it’s likely you’ll never want to leave. A popular destination for U.S. travelers seeking a bit of reclusiveness in a nautical setting, the Abacos islands are the perfect place to retire to when you crave a bit of simplicity. The two main islands, Great Abaco and Little Abaco, are easily accessed by boat and most visitors stay in beachside cottages or on the marina when docked. While you’re enjoying the island life, take a dip in the blue waters and enjoy some of the best diving and snorkeling in the Bahamas.
Abacos Travel Information
- Treasure Cay is a good place to start but there are more inlets and undiscovered cays than you will have time to explore in one holiday. The warm turquoise sea creates the magic for all water activities whether sailing, diving, snorkeling or just lying on the white sandy beach with a glass in your hand.
- Abaco National Park is the only place where Abaco (Barbados) parrots are found, and the Wild Horse Preserve safeguards “barbs” horses which are the descendents of those that came over with Christopher Columbus.
- Get your fish cooked with its head on Bahaman style at a fish fry. There’s sure to be some rum punch involved, too, as well as calypso music and dancing.
