Abaco Islands Travel Guides
Abaco Island Travel Guide
Abaco Island is renowned for the waters it is surrounded by. It is one of the few places in the world where you can rent a boat and with a little orientation and instruction, head off into a calm, protected sea of reefs, deserted beaches, fishing grounds and deserted settlements.
Enjoy a grouper burger in a harbour-front restaurant and browse through shops and galleries in a picturesque village. There is a challenging 18-hole championship golf course and good roads
allow you to explore the 100-mile-long mainland by rental car. Along the way, you can see historic villages, photograph island architecture and take a hike in a forest preserve with a population of protected wild parrots.
There are billfish tournaments and yacht regattas. You can count dolphins swimming the Sea of Abaco and collect shells on the wide, deserted, palm-fringed and uncommercial beaches. Safe for
swimming and snorkeling on a coral reef where you will see an amazing variety of creatures from eels and spiny lobster to waving purple seafans and sea anemones.
