Introduction:

Conveniently located close to Marsh Harbour, Elbow Cay, where White Sound is located, is rightfully one of the most popular boating destinations in the Abacos. Plenty of marinas, protected anchorages and harbors and good provisioning and dining ashore make this area one of the nicest in the Bahamas.

About midway down along Elbow Cay is White Sound, where you will find the Abaco Inn and Sea Spray Marina. While anchoring is not feasible in the harbor here, there is a small area to drop the hook just north of the entrance to the sound. Most of the passages are dredged cuts, which are visible in the image above.


Navigating the Water:

White Sound is easy to enter and is well-marked along its length. A flashing white light marks the entrance, and smaller buoys line up along the channel the rest of the way in. A small anchorage is available just north of the entrance to White Sound. Dornos Cove is the next area south, and Marnes Landing and a small marina are here.


Things To Do/Local Events:

Aside from snorkeling, beach combing, sailing, and other water activities, there is an active and vibrant calendar of other scheduled events in the Abacos. See our “Helpful Links” section below for a detailed calendar of events.


Transportation:

There is no airstrip on Elbow Cay, so arriving here by boat is your only option. The nearest airport is not far away, though. Marsh Harbour International is only 6 miles to the west of Elbow Cay.
