The Eastern Shore, Marsh Harbour
There is a pleasant seating area in a small park on the right hand side up the road from the cottage, and a small beach on the left hand side at the S bend.
Mermaid Reef, Pelican Shores, Marsh Harbour
There is a nice snorkelling area in Marsh Harbour called Mermaid Reef which is located on Pelican Shores. Turn right off the main road into town at Lignum Vitae Road, just before the Abaco Beach Resort on the left, follow the road up the hill and round the corner to your left at the top and you will see it sign posted on your right. There is a good fish shop on this road at the boat yard at the bottom of the hill.
Go North out of Marsh Harbour to Treasure Cay; it is one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It is about a 40 minute drive. There is a big beach bar there. There is also a lovely Restaurant with pool on the right on this beautiful beach called Treasure Sands, well worth a visit, on the right as you enter Treasure Cay.
Little Harbour – Pete’s Pub
One that we really enjoy is Little Harbour about 30 minutes South of Marsh Harbour from the airport round-a-bout, with the large parrot in the middle. After about 10 minutes from the round-a-bout take a left off the main road, signposted Pete’s Pub, then another left turn 5 minutes further on, again signposted and follow a rocky road for 2 miles. It is a beautiful horseshoe bay with Pete’s Pub right on the beach. The Atlantic Ocean is on the other side of the hill.
Three quarters of a mile from the cottage is the ferry to Hope Town, with it's very quaint painted cottages, busy harbour and the Atlantic Ocean on the opposite side. There a number of bars and restaurants dotted around the harbour. There is also the ferry to Man of War Cay which is an interesting Colonial settlement. The ferry to Guana Cay is in town and goes from the Conch Inn. This Cay has nice beaches and a fun bar called Nippers.
