The Abacos Sights



Abaco National Park

Abaco National Park Review

The Abaco National Park was established in 1994 as a sanctuary for the endangered Abaco parrot, of which there are less than 3,000. Many other birds call the park home, including the Bahama yellowthroat and pine warbler.

A 15-mi dirt track passes through the 20,500 protected acres, ending at the Hole-in-the-Wall lighthouse, a starkly beautiful and desolate location overlooking the ocean. The drive from the paved highway all the way to the lighthouse takes about 1½ hours, and can only be done in a 4X4 vehicle. The lighthouse is not technically open to visitors, but people still do climb the rickety stairs to the top where views of the island and the sea are mesmerizing.
