Abaco Islands Luxury Yachting Guide

Located in the northern Bahamas and comprising the main islands of Great Abaco and Little Abaco, the Abaco Islands are a noted base for sailing activities in the Bahamas, as well as resort tourism and beautiful national parks.

The islands are also home to quaint colonial towns, excellent golf courses, pristine beaches, top class fishing and diving and an impressive assortment of hotels, restaurants and bars.

One of the jewels in the Abacos crown is Marsh Harbour. Situated on Great Abaco Island, Marsh Harbour is particularly popular with yacht charterers thanks to the presence of several full-service marinas where you can dock your own boat or find a rental.

North of Marsh Harbour is Treasure Cay, a hotel, golf, marina and real estate development wrapped around a beach with stunning white sand. To the south lies Little Harbour, a picturesque protected bay that is home to a small artist colony.

Also close to Marsh Habrour, on the islet of Great Guana Cay, is Baker's Bay Golf & Ocean Club, which attracts yachting visitors and luxury travellers in general thanks to its superb facilities and marina that can accommodate yachts of up to 75m.

Other notable attractions include the famous candy striped lighthouse that can be found on Hope Town, and the intriguingly named Man-O-War, one of a large number of Loyalist settlements in the Bahamas and the heartland of the Abacos’ boat-building industry.
