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 make them fall in love with the life style of the Abacos. There are no high rises, or casinos 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 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.
