Hope Town is a unique town located around a beautiful harbour. Most of the attractions are close to the harbour. This includes restaurants, marinas, art galleries, pristine beaches, bars, playground for kids, a museum and more.
The North End public dock is 150m from the back door of the Beach House, with room to dock a rental boat free of charge if desired. A rental boat opens up a whole bunch of possibilities for day trips and outings. The local ferry service will drop off and pick up from this dock as well.
The island ( Elbow Cay ) runs north-south, and has two distinct sides, each with their own character - the 'Ocean' side, on the east, facing the Atlantic, and the 'Bay' or 'Sea of Abaco' side, on the west. Both sides are beautiful - the ocean side has coral reefs, crashing surf (depending on the wind) and gorgeous long beaches. It is a short walk, maybe 300m, out the back door to the ocean side beach - a beautiful beach to walk and a fantastic place to snorkel on a coral reef straight off the beach. When the wind is up and the waves are crashing it can be too rough to snorkel, but when there is no wind you can be rewarded with a terrific experience. One can walk all the way to town on this beach, and we often do. The bay side is more tranquil, has fewer beaches but the ones that exist are very special - notably Tahiti Beach in the south and Nathan's Bay in the north, directly in front of the Beach House. These are the perfect swimming and lounging beaches. The wind generally blows from the east so the beaches on the west side are sheltered, it is like being on a beautiful turquoise lake with a natural white sand beach and crystal clear water. Even at low tide the bottom is sand. One can pull a small boat up on the beach or anchor in waist deep water. Access to the North End road is somewhat restricted, so there is very little road traffic. The locals often bring their boats around to this beach on weekends for a few hours of enjoying the water with their families, confirming what a special place this is. We've been told many times 'You've got a real pretty spot here' by those who know... For the most part the beach is completely deserted though, it will feel like your own private paradise. Snorkeling from this beach is also enjoyable - you will see fish, can dive for conch or spear lobster.
For the hard core angler, there is almost every type of fishing available in the area. You can go offshore on the ocean side and bottom fish for large grouper or troll for tuna, dorado and wahoo. On the bay side you can hand line for pan fish, cast off the dock or beach, or go bone fishing in the mangroves behind Snake Cay.
Simply playing around on the beach in front of the house might be the most enjoyable of all. We have a few small boats available for use, a much used and much loved Sunfish, a small rowboat, a 2 man kayak and a small kid's kayak. Our caretaker will discuss some precautions and restrictions but provided you are comfortable using these boats you will be welcome to have fun with them.
After a day of playing in the sun, what could be better than relaxing on the porch or barbecuing while the sun sets right in front of you. There is a gas barbecue and a wood burning barbecue/smoker for the adventurous.
In general, Hope Town is a lot of fun, with a thriving social scene, and being 10 minutes away on an idyllic beach is hard to beat.
