You Must Do these Things When Staying in Treasure Cay

Top 3 Most Popular things to do

Travelers looking for a Bahama Out Island that provides an all-in-one experience will find the Abacos to be an attractive destination, particularly because it is an archipelago of over 100 islands. The Abacos provide a blend of historic, cultural and geographic wonder, and island adventure: spectacular fishing and boating, artifact-rich museums, fun beach bars, diverse restaurants and special events.

The Treasure Cay Beach, Marina and Golf Resort is a convenient gateway for exploring some of the best attractions in the Abacos. Treasure Cay is a residential community and resort village on the northern end of Great Abaco. It has its own golf course and international airport with daily flights from the US. The resort is home to one of the largest marinas in The Bahamas.

Here is a short list of things you must do when staying in the gateway to Abaco adventure: Treasure Cay:

  1. Treasure Cay Beach – Treasure Cay Beach is one of the most phenomenal beaches in all of the Abacos and the Caribbean at large, according to the many international beach awards it can brag about. The crescent-shaped beach provides a backdrop for exceptional photos while offering unobstructed views of the Sea of Abaco. This white-as-snow beach stretches uninterrupted for almost 4 miles. 
  2. Green Turtle Cay – Of all of the populated cays in the Abacos, Green Turtle Cay is the most populated. This, however, does not take away from its small island charm, for which the Abacos is renowned. There are several ferries daily that operate from the Treasure Cay Ferry Dock to Green Turtle Cay. If the name wasn’t a giveaway, the long and narrow cay is named after its former residents: the now endangered green sea turtles used to be abundant around the island. You can visit one of the oldest religious institutions in the country on Green Turtle Cay: The first Methodist church in The Bahamas. For more history, there is the Albert Lowe Museum. The restaurants at Green Turtle Club Resort & Marina, Bluff House Resort & Marina, and Leeward Yacht Club & Marina are top options for dining on the cay. 
  3. No Name Cay – From Green Turtle Cay’s Atlantic Ocean coast,  you can look out and see No Name Cay just to the south. The two islands are comparable by size, but No Name Cay is devoid of human habitation. The creatures living on No Name cay are pigs, swimming pigs to be specific. The Exumas aren’t the only place you can find the famous swimming pigs in The Bahamas. Separate from the island’s pig beach, the windward side of the island has a sunbathing and snorkeling beach, with a barrier reef just offshore.
