Lovers of sailing, fishing, or diving should be directed to The Abacos. Honeymooners, those celebrating anniversaries, and anyone with a romantic bone in their body falls in love with the cays - quaint island villages and cottages built by former British - Americans in the early 1800s. Those wanting to get away from it all on deserted cays can do so while also enjoying comfortable accommodations in smaller island communities or on slightly busier Great Abaco. The Abacos are commonly referred to as "Nantucket under the palms." The famous candy-striped lighthouse ifs found here, as well as one of the top ten beaches in the world.
