Little Harbour Bay gets my vote. Not much light pollution and quiet and protected and Pete's is nice and close. In full disclosure I have not been there in a number of years so don't know about any recent development.

Almost anywhere during one of the many power outages Other than that, anywhere you are away from a settlement. We have had some of our best viewing crossing the Little Bahama Bank at night with no moon.

Great Sale in the middle of Little Bahama Bank is Amazing star-wise, but it's just outside of Abacos. Nice cause sheltered anchoring & no light pollution.

I should have mentioned great sale. Its on the way to the abacos if coming from south florida. Far from light pollution, good anchorage, great stargazing...
