The famous Hope Town Lighthouse

Elbow Cay is unique in its diversity, and offers a real potpourri of island style diversions. One of The Abacos' more popular island hideaways, and certainly one of the largest, Elbow Cay is home to The most famous landmark in the Abacos - the red and white striped lighthouse. The Hope Town lighthouse is one of only three kerosene-powered lights in the world, and all three are in the Bahamas. The large Fresnel lens floating in a bath of mercury generates a light visible for more than 17 miles. There is no motorized traffic in Hope Town, and the hilly streets must be explored on foot.

The Hope Town harbour can be crowded on occasions.
