WINTER 2010I sea& iI57 furtherafield GREEN TURTLE CLUB, Mike's Sundowners Bar ( both on Green Turtle Cay), and the Spinnaker Restaurant & Lounge on Treasure Cay are great places to dine. NIPPERS BEACH BAR & GRILLhas impressive food and views. It's perched on a dune on Great Guana Cay overlooking the Great Abaco Barrier Reef. TREASURE CAY GOLF COURSEis an 18- hole Dick Wilson- designed course on Treasure Cay. It is of championship calibre and known for its tropical beauty. MARSH HARBOR( the main town of the Abacos) is on Great Abaco, and as such is well worth a visit. LITTLE HARBOR ARTISTS' COLONYwas established by theJohnston family, and the Pete Johnston's Foundry now casts magnificent bronze sculptures that you can view and purchase. THE CANDY STRIPED LIGHTHOUSE- more formally known as the Hope Town lighthouse - dates back to 1863 and is the most famous landmark in the Abacos. GREAT GUANA CAY is the spot to bone, reef or deep- sea fish. No Name Cay ( the first cay south of Green Turtle), meanwhile, is great for catching the increasingly scarce Bahamian lobster. DIVE IN AT FOWL CAY MARINE RESERVEand Sandy Cay, which arguably has the largest display of elkhorn coral in the world. TOP SPOTS THE ABACOS A chain of islands extending some 193 kilometres ( 120 miles) - and distanced from the Exumas by about 297 kilometres ( 185 nautical miles) north - the Abacos are another prime charter destination, increasingly coming into their own despite their shallow cruising waters, which restrict yachts with deeper drafts. You can begin a charter at Nassau and cruise around six hours to get to the Abacos, or start from Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco, Treasure Cay or Harbour Island. One development that is changing the face of the Abacos is Baker's Bay. This fantastic new resort complex comprises a nature preserve, a marina with deep- water access for larger yachts, a village, spa, fitness centre, 18- hole golf course ( currently under development) and world- class dining. While in the Abacos, take advantage of great game fishing for marlin, sailfish, mahi mahi, wahoo, tuna and shark, plus spear fishing for lobster. n
