Relax and unwind while you sip your morning coffee, dine al fresco, or enjoy stunning Abaco sunsets with your favorite beverage in hand – make sure to ‘hail’ (wave and greet) locals and visitors passing by on foot in this pedestrian only village.
Delicious and popular ‘Harbour’s Edge’ restaurant is just across the way. There you can dine on scrumptious meals prepared with local flavor and refreshing cocktails. Alluring footpaths lead to several additional nearby restaurants, shops, and a-must-see museum sits next door, all awaiting your discovery.
To make it easy on you, a cooler with bottled drinking water is provided, but make sure to still visit the little ‘convenience’ store known as - ‘Mr. Vernon’s’ - and indulge in some of his world famous fresh baked bread, pies, quotes and wisdom. Coffee from the local coffee shop – they roast it on the island – is a perfect accompaniment.
You will be enthralled with the 5-mile stretch of lovely uninterrupted beach just over the dune. Many fall in love here with the snorkeling, swimming and surfing in crystalline blue waters. Make sure to also take time for shelling and birding, or just relax and rejuvenate to the ‘soundtrack’ of sea.
