A must stop location in the Abacos and offers the best view available of once of the most beautiful places on earth. On a hot summer day (we were there in June) it also has a wonderful breeze.

110 steps to the top. Could see the entire island. Kinda tricky to find but worth the adventure. Would highly recommend the light house.

The lighthouse is the last remaining kerosene fuelled one in the world. A walk up the many steps is well worth the experience and the view. Free too!
