What A great place to get away in time... No frills like the "Mall" but just good fun with the local folks... Fishing is great especially if your have a guide like "Mac Attack" Rolle... Several good places to dine Bimini Big Game, Bimini Bay, Anchorage, Ebbie's Sand Bar and Sherry's Beach Bar... Don't bring your fancy clothes be ready for casual relaxing... Big John's bar at night, The Bimini Musem and Capt Bob's for breakfast....
Abaco is a fun affordable place, some time i love Abaco because u have friends and family every where and i think the family island is the safest place to be at all time, it is not boring because there is your friend and family there to talk to or play with like kids, they enjoy it were they can fell free and run about the place every day stay out late that is why i like Abaco.
