Destination guide

Discover a tropical paradise in Elbow Cay

Nestled in the turquoise waters of the Sea of Abaco, Elbow Cay offers a different flavor of the Bahamas. Flashy mega-resorts, cruise ships and rowdy spring breakers will be all but a distant memory as you discover the true meaning of tropical paradise. The pastel cottages, candy-striped lighthouse and fragrant bougainvillea create a charming New England vibe in the cay's largest settlement of Hope Town, an 18th-century village that's home to most Elbow Cay vacation rentals. The unspoiled White Sound and Garbanzo Beaches serve up plenty of reasons to explore further along the coastline.

Things to do

Soak up the culture in Elbow Cay

For a culture fix within easy reach of your Elbow Cay vacation rental, Wyannie Malone Museum fits the bill perfectly. Dedicated to a South Carolina Loyalist, who fled her home amid the American Revolution and subsequently helped found Hope Town, the museum is tiny but delightfully engaging. Like to learn about Elbow Cay's whaling past? The Cetacean Museum is well worth a visit. With culture ticked off your must-do list, you can enjoy a stroll through the Byrle Patterson Memorial Garden, a tranquil space that offers a pleasant change of pace from the cay's beaches.


Bahamian breakfasts in Elbow Cay

With just the right number of amenities, the charming village of Hope Town delights travelers with its small-town vibe. If you don't plan to cook up a storm in the kitchen of your Elbow Cay vacation rental, tucking into a Bahamian breakfast burrito or a guava-banana muffin on the breezy outdoor patio of a local restaurant is a satisfying way to start the day. Later, you might do a spot of sightseeing or browse the village's stalls and boutiques, perhaps choosing hand-dyed Batik gifts for those back home. Why not pop into one of the local bars for a fruity rum cocktail and traditional conch cake?


Enjoy a winter getaway in Elbow Cay

Elbow Cay boasts a pleasant climate all year round. Over the summer months of July through September, sunseekers can bask in temperatures that often soar past 90 degrees. That said, the threat of hurricanes makes summer in Elbow Cay a definite low season, with most travelers preferring to bag their Elbow Cay vacation rental during the high season of November through mid-April instead. Temperatures in the high season don't differ all that much from the summer months, with high 70s to low 80s par for the course, and a light sweater about all that is needed in terms of a winter wardrobe.

Natural features

Visit pristine reserves from your Elbow Cay base

When you're not settling back and enjoying the view from Elbow Cay's beaches, you might choose to get out on the water. Boat rentals and charters are readily available from the harbor, with hour-long trips and full-day excursions among the available options. Trips to the surrounding green spaces are a popular choice, especially to Fowl Cays National Park, an almost 2,000-acre reserve with a colorful reef, and Tilloo Cay National Park, a smaller reserve, but one that is lauded for the presence of yellow-crowned night herons amid its array of tropical birdlife.
