Lots of wonderful spots in the Bahamas, but my favorite destination
is still the Abacos. I just got back from a 9-night charter
, 8 of those nights we had a bay if not an enter island to ourselves. Where else can you do that? There are of course quaint towns, resorts, and good snorkeling as well. I think there are more uninhabited anchorages
in the Abacos than the Exuams, although the Exumas
certainly have nicer winter weather
When on my own boat
, I like that the Abacos are just two easy day sails
away from Forida, no overnight sailing required.
In the Exumas
I like Allan's, Staniel Cay and gunk holing just north of Georgetown
. Cambridge is nice, but I don't like the way current
park rules tend to crowd so many boats there now on moorings.
I'm glad I visited Harbour Island, but don't care to return.
I liked Attwood Harbour on Acklins and Little Harbour on Long.
