Marsh Harbour, founded in 1784, is centrally located in the island chain. It is the commercial center of The Abacos and hosts the larger of two international airports. It has a growing number of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars, a great selection of hotels and resorts, other service amenities, and the only stoplight to be found in The Bahamas' Out Islands.

The lively downtown area offers all city amenities, yet it maintains a small-town feel. Marsh Harbour is charter boat central, with several full-service marinas where you can dock your own boat or find a rental – both live-aboard sailboats and powerboats are available. A number of well-stocked stores can fulfill the boater's every need, plus you'll find a great selection of hotels, restaurants and bars.
