Schooner Bay is a community where Island living is sustained with innovative infrastructure and surrounded by nature’s best features.
Here, you will see that palm trees and pines live in harmony side by side. Natural rock and coral formations gradually rise between undisturbed pristine white sand beaches. The same white capped waves that ebb and flow on the sand also crash and splash in perfect formation against our Iron Shore providing a rush of sensory stimulation to all who see and hear it. From our gated entrance, you will find roads lined with young palm trees that meander into sandy trails along the beach, perfect for explorers and wanderers. Bahamian architecture brushed with tropical colors and design will give your home its place in the sun. Concrete and steel combined under the most rigid construction methods, will ensure your home meets your expectations for both timeless Bahamian design and 21st century luxury. The Harbour Village and Schooner Bay Marina serves as a visual focal point and the gateway to world-class fishing in deep waters just minutes off the beach. The Blackfly Lodge offers nostalgic accommodations in the spirit of Hemingway to sport fisherman from around the world seeking blue water fishing and the best of the flats. Expect gourmet meals, gracious service, and astounding views. And this is just the beginning…Welcome home to Schooner Bay!
Harbor Of Refuge
Since the summer of 2011, the Marina at Schooner Bay has served as the only harbor of refuge along the southern coastline of Great Abaco. It can accommodate vessels up to 80 feet in length with an eight-foot draft and offers ice, diesel, water, gas and other provisions. It also offers owner docks, nine transient slips, a large boat ramp, and dry storage of vessels under 35 feet.
Imagine your life without cars. Where a ride in your golf cart is more practical and more exhilarating than a daily commute behind the wheel. Instead of sirens and horns, you hear waves and feel a constant island breeze. You will find that each cottage home is individual in taste yet still integral to the community that is Harbour Village.
Nestled between our palm-fringed white sand beach and the marina you will find a casual oasis with a pool, beachfront bar, restaurant, and lounge. It will be the ideal location for our members to relax and recharge. Water activities will include paddle boarding, kayaking, and snorkeling.
The waters in and around Schooner Bay provide excellent environments for both surfers and paddle boarders. Kayakers and sailors will appreciate the harbor as well where the breeze is steady and the view is priceless. No crowds on the beach and certainly no crowds in the water. There is never a day here, whether calm or stormy, that the endless rhythm of these waters doesn’t put life where it should be…in the moment.
The Town Center will be a one of a kind community gathering place where residents and their guests gather, relax, or prepare for their next adventure. The amenities include: reception center, restaurant, fitness center, kids play area, small pool for adults and kids, and an event lawn. Located next to the marina, sports area, and steps away from our white beaches.
