Quaint, quiet and a true taste of the Bahamas

Forget the casinos and beaches and cruise lines! Take a charter flight to Abaco, and a ferry to Hope Town. The harbor, the waters and the people make it very special.

Hope Town, Abaco is considered a Bahamian out island meaning it is out of the way! It is quaint, a big fishing spot with very little commercialism. The harbor is almost like a New England harbor, complete with lighthouse. Restuarants over the water, and no need for a car! We got from harbor area to our rented house by boat every day.

Favourite spots:
The town area has small markets for groceries, seafood and local food cafes and great walking paths to check out the historic and traditional buildings.

What's really great:
Climbing to the top of the lighthouse was great for breathtaking views. The local iguanas are rather large, and many are pets. Dogs and children run free and the locals are very friendly. After dark there is little to do, so get a comfortable place to stay. We rented a house, complete with dock and boat and enjoyed great ocean views.

Sights:
The Wyannie Malone Museum
The Light House
The big big ocean and the sand bars that reveal themselves at low tide- fund to anchor near and play on .

Accommodations:
There are many real estate groups which rent homes. We rented ours from a friend, but the homes and agents are plentiful online!
If we go back I think I would opt for the Abaco Inn. Great views, and a beach. On the side of the island we were on, there is only scrub and no place to walk on the shore.

Nightlife:
didn't notice any!

Hangouts:
Most of the cafes also have bars. A few of the new hotels also have bars such as Club Soleil.

Restaurants:
Club Soleil Resort has a great little restaurant and bar, and Captain Jacks on the west side of the island.
