What To Do

Hope Town is a place to visit and do absolutely nothing and enjoy the serenity and beauty; or a place to get your adventure on! Here are some island adventures we recommend doing while you’re here:

BEACHING/BEACH COMBING

Although the island of Hope Town is just a few miles long, there are several beaches perfect to relax, explore, or surf. Local favorites are Garabonzo and Elbow Cay beach, perfect for surfing conditions. Others like Tahiti Beach and Nathan’s Bay Beach are the perfect spot for an afternoon swim and drink. Hope Town sits right on the Atlantic Ocean, making it the perfect spot for beach combing. Be sure to hit up the beaches at low tide to find your island treasures like sea glass and shells.

BOATING

The Abaco’s have long been known as the “Boating Capital” of The Bahamas. The island is perfect to enjoy isolated beaches, discover and snorkel reefs, and explore the surrounding cays and islands. We highly recommend having a boat for your stay to take true advantage of this island experience. Hope Town Living would be happy to reserve your boat. For those not as comfortable captaining their own boat, there are Captains available for charter.

FISHING

Fishing is excellent throughout the Abaco’s, which have attracted many fisherman over the years for tournaments. The shallow, marshy flats of Great Abaco, commonly referred to as “The Marls”, is a haven for bonefish. Just off of Hope Town, deep-sea fishing is a common spot for marlin, tuna, and wahoo, where the drop off from the reef to the Atlantic is steep. There are several guides and fishermen available for the perfect fishing trip you desire to ensure you land a “catch.”

ISLAND HOPPING

Abaco is made up on several islands and cays, Hope Town is just one of them! Each cay has its own flair and something different to experience. For example, Man O War is known for The Albury Sail Shop, a decades old family-run store that hand makes bags from reusable sails. Over in Little Harbor, Pete’s Pub’s Sushi nights are a must, as well as a walk through their art gallery. No Name Cay, adjacent to Green Turtle Cay, is a remote island where friendly, local island pigs are waiting to greet you. There is also a restaurant/bar, Big O’s, located on the island, making it a perfect day trip. Charters are available for Island Hopping.
