Abaco Lodge sits on the rocky shoreline of the Marls, on the west side of Abaco. We are just north of Marsh Harbour, on the way to Treasure Cay. The bright, charming lodge welcomes guests with spectacular waterfront views. Enjoy a cold Kalik by the pool, or gather around the fire pit where, under a setting sun the day’s fishing stories enter into island lore.

The lodge consists of 11 rooms with a capacity of 14 anglers.  There are  8 single rooms with king or queen size beds and 3 double rooms with two queen size beds.   ALl of the rooms offer air conditioning and private bathroom.  Wireless Internet will keep you connected back home. Phone service is available and there is great cell coverage throughout the island.  There is also a large flat screen TV for catching all the games.

The lodge’s main bar is stocked with spirits, cold beer, soft drinks, plenty of ice, and mixers for cocktails. We also have an on-site fly shop where you can purchase everything from flies, leaders and tippet, and lodge logo-wear. Fly-tying equipment is also available.

Location & Transportation

Located approximately 180 miles off the coast of Florida, the Abacos cup the eastern edge of Grand Bahama Island at the northernmost tip of the Bahamas archipelago. Upon flying into Marsh Harbour International Airport (MHH) on Great Abaco Island, you’ll be shuttled to Abaco Lodge—a private palm-treed expanse with its own protected harbor.

Abaco Lodge is the sole bonefishing resort in the Marls, on the island’s western edge. The Marls is enveloped by a recently designated National Park. Inside its perimeters, with an average depth of about four feet and little tidal influence, lives one of the top-rated bonefisheries in the Bahamas. Your guides at Abaco Lodge know every inch of it. From blue holes that attract juvenile tarpon (and not-so-juvenile barracuda) to productive bonefish flats and hundreds of cays extending from Cross Harbour in the south to stretches well north of the lodge, you’ll explore new and unpressured water daily.
