The Abacos island chain includes Great Abaco, the main island, Little Abaco and some islets. Together, they form a boomerang nearly 210 km long. The islands are located 280 km east of Palm Beach, Florida, and 170 km north of Nassau. The Sea of Abacos refers to the huge cove formed by this crescent of islands.
It benefits from protected waters and has a multitude of deserted "cays". Abaco, which is considered the second largest island in the Bahamas, has a cooler climate than the other islands. In summer, temperatures range from 26.5°C to 29.4°C, and in winter they rarely drop below 10°C. An ideal climate for cabin cruises in the Bahamas.
