Where is Hope Town?
Hope Town is located on the island of Elbow Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. It is situated just four miles off of the mainland of Great Abaco, where Marsh Harbor is located. Great Abaco is less than 180 miles east of Florida.
How do I get to Hope Town?
It takes just a few easy steps to get to our little island! Fly into Marsh Harbor International Airport (commercial/private) or FBO Cherokee Aviation (private). Then, take a 10-minute taxi ride to the Ferry Dock. Finally, you will then take a ferry to Hope Town which takes approximately 20 minutes.
We would be happy to arrange for a taxi and/or private charter ferry for your convenience. Feel free to ask us any questions about how we can make your arrival as smooth as possible.
Are there golf carts and/or boats to rent?
There are multiple golf cart companies on island. Both four seater and six seater carts are available. Boat rental companies are located in Hope Town, Man O War Cay, and Marsh Harbor. Should you rent from Marsh Harbor, you can captain your rental directly to Hope Town once you arrive in Marsh Harbor or they will deliver in Hope Town at an additional cost.
Hope Town Living will take care of your golf cart and/or boat rentals to ensure your experience is seamless!
Is there anywhere to grocery shop?
There are a few small grocery stores located on the island for your everyday essentials: L.V.A Convenience, Vernon’s Grocery, and Harbor View Grocery Store.
If you plan on cheffing it up, it is suggested you shop in Marsh Harbor at Maxwell’s Supermarket or Abaco Groceries before you make your way to Hope Town. Your taxi would be more than happy to stop on the way to the Ferry Dock!
Should you desire to have your house provisioned prior to arrival, Hope Town Living would be happy to take care of it. Just send us a list! This also includes wines and spirits.
