The Abacos are a chain of islands stretching 776-square-miles in the northern Bahamas, comprising Great Abaco, Little Abaco and a large number of barrier cays.
Widely regarded as a paradise for sailors thanks to their calm waters and multiple islands and cays, the Abacos also have some amazing beaches, one of which is frequently voted in the world’s top 10 list. Scuba divers and snorkelers flock here for the third largest barrier reef on the planet, too.
Most locals reside in the energetic town of Marsh Harbour which boasts a lively downtown and all the amenities you would need for exploring the surrounding Loyalist Cays, named after the 18th Century settlers who were fleeing from the American Revolution.
The Abaco Islands are well connected to the Bahamian capital of Nassau on New Providence, with weekly crossings departing from Sandy Point on the south coast of Great Abaco.
