Another cold, dark day calls for a little vacation dreaming. Hopetown is my go-to dream. I traveled here with my family when I was younger and have idolized the beaches, water, and adorable town, ever since.
Hopetown is located on Elbow Cay in the Abacos. It's not a popular tourist destination because it's a bit tricky to get to. All the better. Visitors fly into Marsh Harbor and take a short ferry ride to Hopetown. Once there, locals travel by foot, boat, or golf cart.
If Beau and I were visiting, I think we'd stay in one of these teeny tiny bungalows. This one sits right on the beach.
This one sits on a small island just outside of Hopetown. It includes a boat with rental.
This place sits right in the harbor, with a great view of the anchorage.
This place is a little more expensive, but on the gorgeous Tahiti beach with a private dock.
We'd do lots of fishing and snorkeling, and spend the afternoons at Abaco Inn, where I recall they make a delicious Pina Colada.
I had a virgin colada the last time we were there, but I'm sure it would be just as tasty the traditional way!
