One of my favorite places to come by boat. There is not much to sight-see, this is the kind of place you come to stay at. Especially if staying on a boat. Just getting in the harbor is fun.

Man-O-War is less traveled than some of the other Islands in the Abacos. They don't sell liquor in the restaurants but you can take your own.

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
