The Island Retreat Amenities

Resort Location

Elbow Cay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas is an eight-mile-long cay with picturesque beaches and soft, powdery, white sand lined with coconut trees. Originally populated by British loyalists fleeing the newly independent United States of America, the island is frozen in idealistic time and almost free of cars. Our main village of Hope Town surrounds a protected harbor with the famous Elbow Reef Lighthouse.
