The Abaco Islands are a group of islands and barrier cays in the northern Bahamas, east of southern Florida. Dive sites include Pelican Cays Land and Sea Park with its underwater caves and colourful coral reefs. Turtles, eagle rays and sharks populate Walker’s Cay National Park in the far northwest. Numerous marinas dot the coast, offering boat access to the Sea of Abaco’s shallow, navigable waters.
The Bahamas National Trust maintains six national parks in the Abacos Islands.
The Abaco Islands boast important natural areas, especially important coral reef areas, barrier-island terrestrial habitats and large forests of Bahamian pine.
