The Abacos: Hope Town / Elbow Cay

Hope Town is clearly one of the most picturesque settlements in the Bahamas.  The town is very charming and made up of homes that are clustered together and painted in bright beautiful colors that represent the flavor of the islands.  Flowering shrubs in vibrant exotic colors adorn the walls and picket fences everywhere.  The streets in town are very narrow, and only wide enough to accommodate a golf cart.     


Its candy-striped lighthouse was built in 1863, and still uses a wind-up brass mechanism to send a beam of light which can be seen for up to 20 miles.  The ocean beach, just to the east, has powdery pink sand and is protected by an extensive offshore reef.  Elbow Cay is unique and offers an assortment of island style adventures.  Visitors can venture out on snorkeling and SCUBA tours, or visit the famous candy striped lighthouse, walk the romantic white powdery beaches, or simply relax and take in the warm sun of the Islands.  I highly recommend taking a stroll to the end of the island for a tasty meal and cold Kalik, the beer of the islands at On Da Beach Bar and Grill – you simply can’t beat the view!

Dear David & Jackie,

We are writing to thank you for such an amazing vacation.  This trip was so much more than just a vacation; it was an adventure we’ll never forget.  Who knew that the Bahamas had so much to offer, from the swimming pigs in Big Major to the Iguanas at Allen’s cay and everything in between?  Conch diving, learning how to clean and prepare conch salad and conch chowder; everyday offered a new experience.  Our personal favorite was catching the 200lb marlin while simply trolling.  Being that this wasn’t a fishing charter, it was a very welcomed bonus.  We want to thank you for your hospitality, for making us feel like family and the gift of a new friendship.   We would definitely recommend Fat Bottom Girl Charters to anyone considering this type of vacation.   Save a spot for us next year!
