Abaco Parrot

Viewing The Beautiful Abaco Parrot

The best time to look for the Abaco Parrot is early morning and late afternoon. Recently we have seen the Parrots in Casuarina Point. You can usually hear them squaking before you see them. The Abaco Parrot is very interesting. Here on the Bahamas National Trust website you will find details.

Cherokee Sound Homes

Sidewalk like streets                                            The famous Long Dock.

Cherokee Sound

You can visit Cherokee Sound by boat or car. It is a quaint seaside community with sidewalk like streets and beautiful old clapboard homes. Tie the boat up at the public dock just past the gas station. There is a grocery store if you need anything, always call before you go to be sure they are open (242-366-2022). Sometimes they have homemade goodies, like Jams, Jellies, Pies or Bread. They also sell T-Shirts and a few souvenirs, etc.J

There are two churches you can attend in Cherokee Sound. The Ebenezer Methodist Church or The Assembly Of God. The Ebenezer Church is a beautiful old building that was build out of cut limestone rock and was beautifully restored by the community in recent years.

Don’t miss the Long Dock! It is the longest wooden dock in the Bahamas and so it is appropriately named. It has been lost in many hurricanes but the men in the community always pull together to rebuild it.

There is also a monument in memory of the fisherman that have been lost at sea.         

Picnic at Point of Spit

Point of Spit

The island directly across the bay in front of the Key Lime Beach House is Point of Spit. It is a great place to sit and relax, cook a hotdog or hamburger or even bbq chicken. A great picnic spot. In the summer time we often meet with neighbours there on a Friday night to grill and have a cocktail or two.

McIntosh Restaurant and Bakery

Green Turtle Cay

This is our favourite outer cay to visit. Take the Ferry from the Green Turtle Cay Ferry Dock just North of Treasure Cay. Here is the schedule including costs.

You MUST rent a golf cart from T & A Golf Carts or you MUST rent a boat from Donnies Boat Rental.

You are on your way to a fun fun day! There are a lot of private, secluded beaches to relax, picnic and swim. Take a picnic lunch with you or pick up something 'to go' at one of the restaurants. I would suggest The Wrecking Tree or Pineapple's. The Lizard Bar is a great place to pop in to have a drink, some conch fritters and a swim in the pool. Laura's Kitchen offers Asian cuisine should you be so inclined.

If you rent a boat, you can visit the piggies at Piggyville on No Name Cay as well as feeding the Sharks and Rays.  Both are wonderful experiences.

Hope Town Lighthouse

Hope Town Light House

If you wish to visit the world famous Hope Town Lighthouse, you can take the ferry to Hope Town and let the ferry captain know you want to get off at the Light house. You will need to get another ride to the main part of town to have lunch, shop or look around. Just ask the boat captain or someone that is there. Cap’n Jacks is one of our favourite places to go. You have to try Vernon’s Pies. Just ask someone for directions. There is also a great coffee shop there.

You can rent a golf cart to visit the beaches and other restaurants that are not within walking distance. It makes for a fun day.

Vernon's Key Lime Pie

While on Hope Town 

you must have some 

of Vernons famous 

Key Lime Pies or 

Home Made Bread.
