Picture yourself perched under a palm tree on a secluded white sand beach overlooking Bahamian cays and waterways at Abaco Beach Resort. The boat harbour marina boasts 200 wet slips along the stunning Sea of Abaco with amenities including two swimming pools, a fitness center, fuel dock, two on-site restaurants and a private beach with complimentary nonmotorized watersports.
The marina’s 24-hour services provide concierge, security and boat washing, plus boat mechanics available per request. Dock your vessel and stay for a while in one of the 96 guest suites. The recently renovated, cozy rooms include hammocks, hot tubs, private patios and beachfront balconies with panoramic views of the gardens and ocean.
For an elegant, fine-dining experience, feast on ribeye steaks and Caribbean spiny lobster tail at The Bistro or relax in a tropical paradise with poolside snacks and fruity drinks at The Terrace & Pool Bar at Marinaville.
The property spans 40 acres along Marsh Harbour offering 100 nautical miles of protected cruising grounds. Less than eight minutes from the local city center and Marsh Harbour International Airport, the resort is a quick jaunt to town for provisions. But you don’t need to leave for fun, because plenty of attractions are available onsite including beach bonfires, live entertainment, watersports, beach volleyball, pickleball, weekly Karaoke and Sushi Night at the pool bar and other year-round events.
Experience ecological treasures of the Bahamas and embark on adventures including deep-sea diving, reef fishing, swimming with pigs and sting rays, and visiting nearby sites such as Man-O-War Cay, Tahiti Beach and Pelican Cays Land & Sea Park. Just 15-20 minutes away, the ferry dock offers trips to the beautiful outer cays.
“The Abaco Beach Resort Marina’s prime location continues to play a strategic role in the success of our business,” says Brent Ingraham, director of sales and marketing.
