THINGS TO DO

Most often, we are asked what are our favorite things to do in Hope Town. The contributors of this Hope Town Guide have lived in Hope Town for 25+ years and have done nearly every activity, dined in every restaurant, visited every attraction, and spent time at every corner of the island.

Here are just a few popular activities that we highly recommend:

Visit and climb to the top of the Hope Town Lighthouse – where the panoramic view is breathtaking. The Lighthouse is boat access only, so you will have to take your runabout to the lighthouse dock. You can also hop on one of the scheduled ferries (Ferry Schedule) and ask the captain if it would be possible for him to drop you to the lighthouse (you will have to wait for the next ferry to get a ride back).

 

Snorkeling – Take an excursion to one of the popular marine parks where you can enjoy a leisurely snorkel around the elk horn coral and abundance of sea life. Or you can just snorkel right off the beach in town where the reef is about 20 yards off shore in some spots. No need to bring all of your heavy snorkel gear, it can be rented on the island. Learn More

 

Scuba diving –  Abaco is known for its spectacular diving spots. There are a number of marine parks and wrecks that are frequented. Two of the most popular spots are Mermaids Reef and Sandy Cay Reef. Froggies Outisland Adventures has daily excursions to either of the two places. You can arrange for a 1/2 day trip or for the enthusiast, there is also a full day trip available. Learn More

 

Sailing Charters – Rent a sailboat and explore the many deserted island we have nearby. Island hopping to the other settlements are also another way to explore the surrounding area. If you are not experienced with operating a sailboat, there is also the option of a captain for hire. Learn More
