Elbow Cay | The Charm of Luxury Island Living

Monday, April 8th, 2019 at 10:08am Engel & Völkers Bahamas

Where silence and serenity are boisterous throughout the community, where its residents travel in carefree strolls by foot or by golf cart and sleeps are profound and uninterrupted, with cottages whose windows are of hand crafted wood and its floors of native pine, with temperatures that often exceed 90 degrees making for a toasty island in the sun, there is no doubt that you are in the esteemed enclave of Elbow Cay, Abaco; The Bahamas.

Drenched in its charming and prided culture, Elbow Cay is a community of rich intimate Bahamian history clutching gems and artifacts dating as far back as 1785 and home to the last hand-cranked kerosene lit lighthouse in the world which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2014 and famed for its red and white candy stripes.

This trendy little village is a magnet for yachtsmen and lovers of the sea bearing three marinas, the most memorizing sunsets and a spellbinding sea line. Many of the homes here are second homes serving as vacation estates with owners from around the world turned rentals throughout the rest of the year.

It’s community center serving as it’s focal point, holds cultural events and serves as an entertainment center with a little of everything to do, hosting fitness and art classes several times per week. Its Residents commonly jump aboard a rental for hour-long trips or full-day excursions on the translucent seabed or journey to the surrounding green spaces such as Fowl Cay or Tilloo Cay National Park, to witness the yellow-crowned night herons and a collection of tropical birdlife. They can also be found serving the catch of the day to family and friends post a day of fishing, diving or snorkeling.

Elbow Cay is home to Six Resorts attracting guests year round. Its visitor’s frolic and fun between its many shopping options and boutiques featuring hand-dyed Batik gifts and an array of bars and
liquor stores, taking a hardy bite into the islands traditional conch cake or sipping a choice rum infused beverage.

This picturesque community has a rare reminiscence and unspoiled island way bringing you back to the joys of island cycling with Bicycle Rentals and Golf Cart Rentals therein, Sailboats and Motor Yachts, as well as The Wyanne Malone Historical Museum, are among its list of to-dos. 

A community gifted with a long serving Church offering Family Service & Sunday School weekly as well as four convenient grocery stores and a Bakery for those occasional sweet tooth’s.

The island is just that, a deliberate elimination of the distracting horn’s, honks and lights of city life and the reintroduction of the sounds of leaves as they sway in their assigned branches amides gusty ocean breezes and backed by a melodious tide. Elbow Cay’s charm is in those things forgotten like deep sleep on the front porch, a walk along a secluded beach or devouring catch lifted from the ocean within the same hour. There are some things you can’t put a price on and they are all found within the harmony of Elbow Cay, The Abacos.
