Peaceful Pretty Island

It's almost out island where there's nothing to do but relax and enjoy the sea and sun. People are friendly and most helpful.

Great "native" cafe on Man O War Cay in Abacos. Very friendly service...Donna was our server and she was very attentive. Kept our drinks full and food was delivered quickly. Very clean and tidy cafe with a lot of menu variety...cracked conch, conch fritters, quite a few grouper items, burgers, chicken in the bag, and more. I had cracked conch,... More

It was a nice boat ride over to the Cay and the buildings were just as cute as could be. The decorative trim and colorful paint along with the small walk/cart ways just made it picturesque. The people I met were very friendly.

We have spent a week in a rental cottage on Man O War Cay in the Abacos. This is one of the most beautiful islands in the Bahamas. A small settlement with friendly and helpful locals. The village is spotless, gardens edged with tropical flowers. Lots to do if you enjoy a perfect beach, peace and tranquility. Water sports activities... More

My first visit to Man 'O War was in early 2013. We rented a local cottage at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Immediately our landlords took us under their wings & began introducing us to locals and 2nd homeowners from away. I fell in love with the casual & friendly atmosphere, as well as the safety & security of... More

This has to be the cleanest, neatest island in all the Bahamas. We have visited many times over the last 10 years. This is a great place to relax, read, and enjoy exploring the island. Lots of beach access and many cottages are available for renting for a short stay or long vacation. Boat rentals are also available along with... More

This is a beautiful harbor on an historic cay, but there is not much to do, if your not resting on your yacht, or building a boat. There are very few places to eat, shop, or do much else. We had to wait for a dock space - a gentlemen was waiting for his wife. We talked and asked him... More

I have been here twice, the beach is exquisite and untouched. The people are so friendly and the island just has a special charm. The Albury Sail Shop with the ladies sewing the beautiful bags, is a huge draw.The first visit I forgot my credit card, so the second time I made sure I secured a gorgeous bag. My son... More

Have been going to Abaco for sometime and found Man-O-War just by chance. Don't drink so my wife and I could care less about it being dry except it does keep the cay quiet at night and no bad behavior by drunks. Dock and Dine is great to eat not only because the food is great but also because the... More

Been to Abaco and the out islands several times. Found a sea to sea rental (ocean on the front and dock on the back to park the boat) and it is great. The warm turquoise waters of the ocean and white sand beach has spoiled us. No crowds! MOW is located in the middle of the boat rental area making... More
