Nice little village with some really nice shops. I found the lighthouse the most interesting and really the view. The stairs to the lighthouse can be a little step and area inside a little cramp, but well worth the climb.

We visited the light house and it has a 360 stunning view. Took several pictures the town was very quaint. The beach on the ocean side was great. A must visit when going to the Ábacos.

Anchored in the harbour for two nights. Hopetown is a great place to stop and relax for a bit. There are restaurants, stores and a lots of sights. Be sure to visit Iggy Biggy and the Hopetown Inn and Marina!

What a great view from the top. A one of a kind old lighthouse! 110 steps to the top for a great view. Worth the walk if you like history.

Stayed a week with friends who rented a lovely modest cottage for a couple of months. It takes a few days to capture the ethos of the island. But it is warm, friendly, laid back, and fun. Did separate positive reviews of Captn. Jack's, Munchies,...More
