On Great Abaco Island in The Bahamas, a new but traditional community, a destination, a real place has been born. A tidy harbour village of Bahamian cottages surrounded by the sea with narrow streets, sweeping beaches, rugged dunes, a tropical forest , where fishing boats rock idly on their moorings and the lively bustle of early evening; parrots call from the forest and neighbors mingle in the streets. Capture all that is essential and nothing that is not. Welcome South Abaco. Welcome to Destination Schooner Bay.

Destination Schooner Bay (DSB) is the exclusive provider of vacation cottage, hospitality and destination management-travel services for people visiting The Bahamas’ hottest new Out Island destination. Discover the real Bahamas you remember from your childhood to create new memories for your family today. Time to rediscover your sense of place.

Schooner Bay is located on Great Abaco Island, just minutes south of Marsh Harbour International Airport. A vacation harbour village for those looking for simplicity and authenticity. South Abaco is an outdoors persons wonderland where the opportunities for Land & Sea Adventures are endless in a pristine environment.

The force behind Destination Schooner Bay is not a brand, but a principle that enables experiences available to an enlightened few. We believe the world needs Schooner Bay for a vacation or for a lifetime – your choice. Many of us vacation in branded programmed places that are devoid of authenticity or real emotion. We know neither the origin of our food nor the source of our water. At Schooner Bay the experience is real.

At Schooner Bay the scale of the village is practical and livable, with all cottages a short walk to the village, the forest, the beach and the farms. The village itself is centered around a 14-acre harbour, with a mix of shops, offices, restaurants and inns. Opportunities to explore the island’s alluring frontier abound, and Schooner Bay features hiking trails, 7 miles of beaches, an art studio, clinic, general store, fuel dock, Beach Club and the Blackfly Bonefish Club, permitting access to one of the world’s most-productive and least pressured fisheries (both flats and blue water).

Schooner welcomes all those dedicated to the principles of sustainability, simplicity, community and family. The world is at a turning point. By drawing on the wisdom of the past and investing in the promise of the future, we can be the change we want to see in the world today. Somewhere this vision is stirring. Schooner Bay is the place. Come see for yourself.
