Abaco, Bahamas is a group of islands and cays in the northwest portion of the Bahamas, where each cay has such a different personality, each offering an excellent vacation destination with lots of diversity. Abaco offers the best combination of technology and tradition, putting a spell on people and making them fall in love with the life style of the Abacos. There are no high rises, or Atlantis casino to be found here. The pace is “Bahamian Time”, which means it is slower and more relaxed than the big cities. Daylight offers an enormous amount of activities, including diving, snorkeling, fishing, island hopping, beachcombing, and pure relaxation. Nightlife is limited to a few choice established restaurants, grill & chill bars and clubs, but enjoyable never the less.
Abaco is comprised of one large island with a group of barrier cays, occupying the second largest land mass in the Bahamas. The mainland is known as Great Abaco and Little Abaco, extending 130 miles long and rarely more than 4 miles wide. To the east of Great Abaco Island, a chain of smaller cays are located two to six miles offshore, providing a natural barrier from the Atlantic Ocean, and forming a protected body of water, known as the Sea of Abaco. These waters have been called the “sailing capital of the world”, making for one of the most popular cruising grounds for both pleasure boaters and avid sports fishermen alike. When boating within these waters, land is always in sight and the cays are usually no more than 10 to 40 minutes apart, making island hopping plenty of fun. A popular trend is renting your own boat and touring the cays at your own pace. On some of the cays, this is the only form of transportation. For confident boaters, the boats are easy to operate and usually have an open hull, center console steering, outboard motor, and T top/Bimini top. There are several boat rental companies throughout the area, offering a variety of sizes to meet your personal needs. The island has two well established ferry boat services to most of the outer cays with scheduled times and daily round trips.
At night, relax under the brilliant, twinkling stars, listen to a local band, or make new friends at the local “hang out”. The memories created in the Abaco Islands will be ones you will cherish for a lifetime. The friendships made here will bring you back again.
If you are considering investing in real estate within prestigious Treasure Cay or other locations on Abaco, to realize your dreams of a vacation getaway residence, a retirement home or investment property, let Abaco Estate Services assist you in locating that choice property, including luxury beachfront homes, canal waterfront lots, ocean waterfront lots, canal front homes, condominiums and acreage on the Mainland of Abaco, Treasure Cay, Marsh Harbour, Leisure Lee and all the surrounding offshore Cays.

Either direction is pleasing to sight-seeing and exploring secluded beaches.
Some visitors may wish to take advantage of local boat rentals and enjoy sightseeing and cruising the mainland Abaco shoreline or the many offshore cays at their own pace. This is recommended if you have good boating experience and know the area. There are several boat rental companies if you want to be water independent, but if you would rather “play it safe”, Albury's Ferry Service makes daily trips to most of the cays, making it easy for a day trip to Elbow Cay, Great Guana Cay, and Man-0-War Cay.

One of the first loyalist settlements in Abaco was at Carleton Point, the most northern point of Treasure Cay Beach.
The community name “Treasure Cay” is somewhat of a misnomer, as Treasure Cay is in fact a long, thin peninsula attached to the Abaco mainland and completely accessible by vehicle.

GREEN TURTLE CAY, ABACO, BAHAMAS
Green Turtle Cay, one of the charming cays situated just off the Abaco Bahamas mainland, was the second largest city in the Bahamas in the 1800's. It is accessed from mainland Abaco by a 15 minute ferry ride on the established and punctual Green Turtle Cay Ferry Service. Today the year round population is less than one thousand people. The residents are mostly engaged in fishing, construction and tourism. This settlement began with the Loyalist in 1783, making it one of the oldest in the Bahamas. This is the home of world famous artist Alton Lowe. Strolling along the paved roads you will meet with the warm and engaging locals who will make you feel like this is your home away from home. Seeing the historic village of New Plymouth takes you back in time where you expect to see pirate ships coming in the harbour. You walk back in time with the contrasts of the narrow streets and brightly painted Caribbean style cottages surrounded by white picket fences, curly tail lizards and vibrantly coloured flowers. Visiting the settlement's Albert Lowe Museum and the Sculpture garden are a bonus of this small island's history.

In the early 20th century they began to build boats.
Man-O-War Cay offers several quaint gift shops, two grocery stores, bakery, boat rentals and golf cart rentals, all set amongst private homes, churches, a schoolhouse and the post office. Two unique gift shops are Joe’s Studio offering hand crafted items made of Abaco wood and Albury's Sail Shop where you can watch them make sturdy, colorful canvas bags and other unique canvas products.

One can also take a daily scheduled ferry for a full day of exploring. When visiting by boat you can come into Man-O-War Marina and walk around while the Captian fuels up the boat. If you would like to invest in a tranquil Man-O-War Cay beachfront home or waterfront residence with dockage, then Man–O-War Cay or Dickies Cay, which forms the protected harbour, could be the perfect spot.
