maxwell's in marsh harbor is as big or bigger than your stateside super market. prices are about as good as you will get anywhere in the bahamas
. you can walk there in about 20 minutes from the conch inn marina. take your vhf
handheld with you. after shopping
, if there is no taxi waiting outside for customers just get on channel 6 - the taxi channel - and ask for 'any taxi to pick me up at maxwell's'. it's about $8 back to the marina, but i always give them $10.
there is another large supermarket - not as big as maxwell's but much bigger than the ones in the other islands - at treasure cay. it's just outside the marina but inside the treasure cay complex and an easy ten minute walk - no taxi needed.
green turtle cay -
white sound is nice. it has a larger anchorage than black sound and two 'resorts', green turtle inn and the bluff house. have lunch at bluff house and you can hang around in the pool all afternoon.
but we went in to black sound because that was where we cleared in to the abacos and black sound offers a ten minute walk to the customs
house. it's also near the old village which is nice to walk around in the evening as well as being close to stores and local restaraunts. the batelco office is nearby if you need to make a call stateside. we took a ball at black sound marina for ten bucks a day which let us use the heads, showers, and laundry
. you can go between the two sounds on a one mile dinghy
ride. you can also rent a golf cart for about $30 a day and take an island tour.
are you getting the feeling that i LOVE the abacos?
