Island dreams in Marsh Harbour

Travelers flock to Marsh Harbour for a dreamy Bahamas getaway, where palm trees sway in the gentle ocean breezes and sunsets paint dramatic scenes of orange and pink against the turquoise waters. The town sits on a peninsula in the Abaco Islands and is a commercial center for all the cays and islets that dot the area, with stores, bakeries and plenty of tasty eateries, some open-air, with views of boats bobbing in the harbor waters. When the time comes to select your Marsh Harbour vacation rental, you'll find all kinds of options await, many near the water, with sandy beaches and private docks.

Things to do

From coast to cay in Marsh Harbour

Off the coast of Marsh Harbour, you'll find many cays to explore, some of them larger and inhabited, like Elbow Cay, where you can lounge around on dreamy, soft-sand beaches, listening to the sound of the waves. You'll want to stop for photographs at the historic Hope Town Lighthouse here, a striking red and white striped structure that you can climb during visiting hours for views over the coast. The cay also has a small museum for those interested in the island's heritage, with exhibits on pirates, boat building, hurricanes and shipwrecks. Some Marsh Harbour vacation rentals are available on the cay, or you can grab a ferry here from the marina in town.


Out on the waves in Marsh Harbour

The marina at Marsh Harbour is a great launching point for excursions out on the glistening waters of the Atlantic, and plenty of vendors are on hand with boat rentals and charters to get you on the waves. Nothing beats the feeling of skimming over the water, with the sun beaming down, circling around the dozens of cays that dot the shoreline here in search of pristine, white sandy beaches for a picnic lunch. There are plenty of spots to hop out for snorkeling and diving, with reefs drawing colorful marine life that you can swim with beneath the surface.


Winter sun in Marsh Harbour

Nothing beats sunny winters in Marsh Harbour, where warm afternoons are spent out on the water, soaking up the fresh sea air, and sipping cold fruity beverages beachside, while lounging under shady palm trees. The Bahamas enjoy warm weather year-round, typically averaging in the 70s and 80s in the afternoons and dipping down ever so slightly for pleasant evenings. Summer and fall are considered hurricane season, so December through April is the best time for beach days, with a lower threat of rain. Since winter is a popular time to visit, though, you'll want to book your Marsh Harbour vacation rental early.
