Abacos Island, Bahamas.

Bahamas islands mapThe Abacos are a group of islands and cays forming a boomerang-shaped chain which stretches nearly 130 miles from Walker's Cay in the north to Hole-In-The-Wall in the south. It lies roughly 175 miles east of Palm Beach and 106 miles north of Nassau. The area of Abaco is 650 square miles. The configuration creates naturally protected waters referred to commonly as the Sea of Abaco which makes a favorite cruising ground for yachtsmen, many of whom come from great distances. Abaco is widely known as the Sailing Capital of the World and a Sailor's Nirvana.

The islands are a noted base for sailing activities in the Bahamas as well as resort tourism.

Sheltered harbors create a haven for yachtsmen. Colonial towns are gems of New England architecture. And the ecosystem provides a rich outdoor experience for nature lovers.

Abacos Beaches

Abacos Island beach, BahamasThere are two types of beaches in The Islands Of The Bahamas—the activity beach and the secluded beach. In The Abacos, beaches offer the best of both, and in most instances, on the same beach.

Great Abaco at Treasure Cay, Ocean Beach rolls out a wide expanse of uncrowded, sugary sand, arcing elegantly around a shallow turquoise bay. But on the eastern end, Ocean Beach has all the bustle and attractions of the true tourist beachfront. You'll find lots to do, and every service will be at your fingertips.

Abacos Landmarks and Attractions

Hope Town Lighthouse

Abacos Hope Town Lighthouse, BahamasThe British Imperial Lighthouse Service built this lighthouse to mark the Elbow Reef during the 1860's. Hope Towners at the time resented this and opposed the project, as they saw it as a threat to their wrecking trade. They went as far as to sink a barge being used to transport building materials. Despite all this, the candy-striped lighthouse at Hope Town went into operation in 1863.

It is one of only two remaining beacons saved from automation (that is vigorously opposed by residents). Extraordinary efforts are undertaken by the local residents to secure the parts for the kerosene-burning apparatus of the light, most of which are no longer manufactured.

Abaco National Park

Abaco ParrotThis National Park, comprising 20,500 acres in Southern Abaco near Hole In The Wall, has been designated a preservation area by the Bahamas Government and is managed by The Bahamas National Trust. Included are 5,000 acres of pine forest – the nesting area and habitat of about 1000 endangered Bahama or "Abaco" Parrots. The parrots once lived on as many as seven islands in The Bahamas, but now only exist in Abaco and Great Inagua.
