Exploring Little Harbour and Pete's Pub & Gallery
Jun 28, 2018
Spend the day in Little Harbour
Whether you're staying in Treasure Cay, Marsh Harbour, or Hope Town, a stay in the Abaco’s isn’t complete without a day trip to Little Harbour, South Abaco, and a stop at the world famous Pete’s Pub & Gallery.
Getting to Pete’s is just as special as the time you spend there when you reach. Passing Tilloo Cay, Lubber’s Quarters and a few more picturesque uninhabited cays on the boat ride down gives you a sense of just how big and beautiful the Abacos really are. The sights you’ll see including lighthouses, a castle, and tall ships straight out of the 1800s, not to mention occasional dolphins riding in your wake. Beyond all of that is the most crystal clear blue water you've ever seen.
If the locals will let you in on the secret, ask them to show you where “Junk Beach” is. You won’t find it on a map, but you will find some of the best treasures from the ocean that have ever washed ashore.
Once you reach the shallow and calm waters of Little Harbour, you’ll find that the party has usually already started. Locals and tourist alike wade in the shallow harbour waters, soaking up the sun, enjoying the beautiful sandy beach. Turtles swim close enough to touch and offer a warm welcome.
Before you get to Pete’s Pub, you’ll find the only working bronze factory in the Bahamas, where some of the most famous bronze statues are created. This factor boasting of works in the Vatican and in museums worldwide. Be sure to check out the gallery and bring yourself home a bronzed piece of paradise.

Just steps from the gallery is the lively Pete’s Pub, serving up delicious food, jammin’ tunes, and most importantly the “Blaster”. This secret recipe cocktail will have you “blasted” in no time. Be sure to stop by on the weekends for the Pig Roast.
