THE LILLS ABACO BAHAMAS ADVENTURE
We kayaked in the mangroves and enjoyed an impressive display of nature and ocean creatures, stranded ourselves on a small island and spent a whole day experiencing Great Abaco from the water. We enjoyed a round of golf at the Treasure Cay Golf Club, located on a luxury resort and we took a ferry to the quaint village of Hope Town on the beautiful island of Elbow Cay
The tiny island is absolutely stunning and makes for a great walk or bike ride. Their perfectly intact lighthouse is a landmark, there is great food to choose from and the people of Hope Town are beyond welcoming. Another great place to visit is Cherokee, a gorgeous 1 mile fishing village with a super cool 770 ft. wooden dock (the largest wooden dock in the commonwealth of the Bahamas).
Whenever traveling, we like to enjoy adapting to the local culture and experiencing places as if we lived there. In Great Abaco, Marsh Harbour is our main source for great restaurants, grocery items and other necessities. Our most favorite and a VERY local place to get a bite of traditional rice and peas is at Mother Merle’s off the beaten path, in Dundas Town. It’s as local as can be and is a great place to grab a drink. Located on the harbor, we also enjoyed Curly Tails, a restaurant that offers good food and a beautiful second-story view.
The harbor is full of beautiful boats and offers ferries to outer islands, like Guana Cay who hosts incredible weekly roasts and celebrations at Nipper’s Bar & Grill. It has attracted people from around the world for it’s good food, lively energy and beach location.
In total, we’ve been to beautiful Great Abaco 4 times and every time we get to know the dazzling Caribbean destination even better. We can’t wait to get back and recommend the destination to all!
