Best Instagram Spots in the Abacos Islands, Bahamas
A little bit ago I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas and found some breath-taking places to take Instagram-worthy pics so I wanted to share those places with you. It is true what they say though: it's better in the Bahamas!
Abacos Islands in the Bahamas
The beauty of this part of the Bahamas is that all of the islands are so close that you can very easily island hop. What you want to do is charter a boat with a captain or bring someone who knows how to drive one and rent one during your stay.
Green Turtle Cay
On Green Turtle Cay you can find lots of animals which makes this one of my favorite spots. First, as the name suggests, you'll find turtles - lots of them! And they’re friendly to boot! Make sure to bring lettuce to get up and close and feed them. Travel to the south of the island to No Name Cay and here you get to meet the pigs – they love bread so bring lots! If you're still ready to meet some more animal friends, head over to Manjack Cay for the sharks! These three spots provide for three amazing photo ops. In between the photographing, you can grab lunch at the Pineapple bar and grill and McIntosh’s Bakery & Restaurant.
Great Guana Cay
On Great Guana Cay, you’ll find gorgeous beaches, Nippers Bar and Grill and Grabber’s Bar & Grill. This cay is super cute and very walkable. PSA: both of these restaurants are more of a party college scene so keep that in mind!
Nearby, you can also visit Baker's Bay where I took the hammock picture you see below. This place though is member’s only so keep that in mind. This is where Justin BIEBER and Hailey Baldwin actually got engaged and Reese Witherspoon among other celebrities have homes.
If you're looking for a breathtaking beach spot, Man-o-War Cay might be your place. In particular, there's a spot where the sands create a crescent that is a must-visit for people with a drone (I didn't have one with me).
Elbow Cay is where you'll find Tahiti beach, which was voted one of the world’s best beaches. There’s a great sandbar at low tide too where you can hang with your boat and have a good time. A must-visit too is the lighthouse because the view is well worth it.
Where to Stay in the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas?
If you're planning a visit to the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas, one of my recommendations would be to rent a house as there are several available. Look for Treasure Cay or Marsh Harbour and fly into those two locations as well with direct flights from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta in the US. Aside from the houses, Treasure Cay also has this amazing pink dock near a great restaurant that I recommend as well called Treasure Sands.
