Bahama Beach Club is located on gorgeous Abaco Island, a Bahamian island of sleepy cays, tiny villages, superb beaches, world-class diving, genuinely friendly people, and stunning natural beauty. Wildlife on Abaco abounds: parrots, wild horses, flamingos, wild hogs and, of course, our extravagant marine life.
If your dream of a Caribbean vacation involves unspoiled, un-asphalted, un-crowded, un-casinoed and un-touristy islands, come to Abaco, Bahamas, and discover the undiscovered.
An island archipelago in the northeastern Bahamas, Abaco is 126 miles long and often called an “island,” but is actually a cluster of islands, islets, and hundreds of offshore cays, many uninhabited. With a population of approximately 13,000, Abaco is the second largest of the Bahamian Out Islands (Andros is the largest.)
Abaco Island Beaches
The deserted beaches of Abaco are begging to be explored. We have hundreds of them. From Bahama Beach Club, you can rent a boat or take an excursion to an overwhelming array of snow-white, picture-postcard, virtually untouched hidden beaches.
Abaco Island Environment
While much of the more touristed Bahamas (Freeport and Nassau) is covered with asphalt, cement, and concrete, the residents of Abaco and the Bahamian government have gone to great lengths to preserve the integrity of our island "ecosphere." Abaco Island has set aside a multi-thousand acre preserve to protect the environment of the endangered Abaco Parrot. More government-protected parks and undersea preserves exist on Abaco than anywhere else in The Bahamas. We’re also a leader in The Bahamas ‘Out Islands’ for our architectural preservation efforts. Settlements on Abaco look like brightly painted pastel versions of New England's quaint fishing villages, with many of the homes well over one hundred years old.
Abaco Island History
Abaco Island has been the boat-building capital of The Bahamas for more than a hundred years. This northern Bahamian island is also the original colonization site for the Loyalists who fled the American Revolution and arrived in 1783. Now, Abaco is populated by industrious and friendly islanders who are proud of their heritage and love meeting visitors.
So come see us. And by the way, our climate is heavenly.
