Your First Resort
If you’re headed to the Abacos, first off, nice choice, and secondly you might want to look into staying at the Abaco Beach Resort. It’s a full-service, luxury hotel nestled right in the heart of Marsh Harbour, the islands’ main hub. And it’s adjacent to Boat Harbour Marina, the largest in the Bahamas, with 198 slips and the ability to accommodate yachts up to 200 feet long. The resort has comfortable rooms, a sprawling private beach, and lots of entertainment options, including bars, restaurants, live music, and parties on the beach when the moon is full. (Pro tip: Try the traditional boiled fish stew for breakfast. Really.) The Abaco Beach Resort is a laid-back place with just the right amount of order to it to make sure your vacation plans stay well oiled and on track. It’s everything you want and exactly what you need when you head down to the islands. (www.abacobeachresort.com)

Fresh fish anyone?
