Anchored in the harbour for two nights. Hopetown is a great place to stop and relax for a bit. There are restaurants, stores and a lots of sights. Be sure to visit Iggy Biggy and the Hopetown Inn and Marina!

What a great view from the top. A one of a kind old lighthouse! 110 steps to the top for a great view. Worth the walk if you like history.

This is on of my favorite islands in the Bahamas Abaco chain. It is so quaint and full of beautiful houses and charing stores and dining. But it doesn't feel crowded or overloaded. There are not very many golf carts from the lower public dock...More
