Little Harbour is located on the east side of Great Abaco Island about midway between the Great Abaco’s north and south ends. Little Harbour is mainly a shelter for cruisers making the passage to the east around Great Abaco. Unfortunately, there is little in the way of facilities here, but the cove offers excellent protection.
If you are approaching from the south, set a course well to the east of an area known as “The Boilers,” which is a breaking reef about two miles south of the entrance to Little Harbour. Boaters arriving from the north (east of Lynard Cay) must steer clear of the reef extending south of Lynard Cay’s tip.
Once you have lined up for the entrance into Bight of Old Robinson, proceed in about a quarter mile, and then turn south into the entrance to Little Harbor. Note in the image above, that there is a reef that works its way out on the left (east) side oft he inlet to Little Harbour.
Depths inside are about 5 to 8 feet with a sand bottom. Be aware that some areas are grassy and require extra special attention when setting the anchor.
