In an idyllic location on the impressive and beautiful peninsula of The Eastern Shore and overlooking the Sea of Abaco and Sugar Loaf Cay. The closest thing to being on an island without the need for a boat!

'On the Rocks' is just two miles from the town of Marsh Harbour and the ferry to Guana Cay and within walking distance to the Hope Town and Man of War ferries. The town has a good selection of shops, supermarkets and medical facilities all staffed by friendly and helpful people. Car and Boat Rentals are available locally and there is a good taxi service to and from the International Airport just 20 minutes away. Golf is available at Treasure ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Beaches & Ferries Abaco

Eastern Shore, Marsh Harbour
There is a small beach West of the cottage. You will pass it on the RHS after the concrete S bend as you enter Eastern Shore.

Mermaid Reef, Pelican Shores, Marsh Harbour
Mermaid Reef is located on Pelican Shore. Turn right off the main road going into town just before the Abaco Beach Resort, which is on the left, at Lignum Vitae. Go up the hill, follow the road round and you will come to it on your right. It is very good for snorkeling. There is a good fish shop on this road beside the boat yard at the bottom of the hill.

Treasure Cay
Go North out of Marsh Harbour to Treasure Cay, one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It is about a 40 minute drive. There is a big beach bar there.
There is also a very nice restaurant at the top end of the beach called Treasure Sands Club with a lovely pool, well worth a visit. The turn off to the left is marked just before the main entry into Treasure Cay.

Little Harbour – Pete's Pub
One that we really enjoy is Little Harbour about 30 minutes South of Marsh Harbour from the airport round-a-bout, with the large parrot in the middle. After about 10 minutes from the round-a-bout turn left off the main road at a sign posted Pete's Pub and then another left 5 minutes further on, again signposted and follow a rocky road for 2 miles. It is a beautiful horseshoe bay with Pete's Pub right on the beach and a Brass foundry and Art Gallery nearby. The Atlantic Ocean is on the other side of the hill.

You catch the ferry to Hope Town just less than a mile up the road from the Cottage. It is very quaint with painted cottages, nice harbour and again Atlantic Ocean over the hill and a number of bars and restaurants. There is also the ferry to Man of War Cay. The ferry to Guana Cay goes from the Conch Inn in town. This Cay has nice beaches and a fun bar called Nippers.

Walk, Jog, Run
If you are looking for some exercise while staying at the cottage there is a very pleasant 5 mile walk, jog, run from the cottage to the Port. It takes you up to the beginning of town where the restaurants are and along the harbour front to the Port and back. You just keep going straight along the harbour road which takes you past some quaint cottages.
