Man-O-War Cay Photo Tour

Man-O-War Cay is another Abacos island we visited on several occasions: in picture perfect sunny weather, in clouds and rain, and during a thunderstorm. 

Like most Bahamian Islands, it was settled by loyalists. Today, the island remains committed to it's religious and boat building heritage. Any reviews of the island mention front and center, in shock and despair: no alcohol, no smoking, no gambling. We really liked the quieter, less touristy vibe and I loved the grocery store; it was big, clean, and had everything!

On Trip #2 to Man-O-War, we had inclement weather and picked up a mooring in the harbour.

I love the textures on this wooden boat!
 There's a sweet conch shell and conch horn stand in town with a honor pay box. We picked up a horn to blow at sunset, a Bahamian tradition.

Residential streets were lined with cut-out picket fences, bright bougainvillea, and conch shells. Lovely!

Each street led to the Atlantic Beach.

Man-O-War Cay: home to the ferry system! 
Do you think you could build a boat without a refreshing beverage or smoke to look forward to at the end of the day?

  1. I remember finding tortillas at Man-O-War Cay and being surprised how reasonably they were priced at. It's a cute island.

    1. Just imagine how excited you'll be when you are back at Wal-Mart staring at an aisle of tortillas! The scenery won't be quite the same though.
