Many were the choice lunch spots we had to consider while boating about the Abacos a few weeks ago. Seaside bars and restaurants dot the shores of every inhabited island, while the bar/restaurant/full-service marina combo at the Abaco Beach Resort enable both you and your boat to get filled up.

Our lunch spot – a thin strip of sand stretching away from the southern edge of Elbow Cay.

Tahiti Beach.

Leaving was tough, as you might well imagine, but we had other sublime, sandy seascapes to discover. More on a few other Abacos treasures next week…
