Shopping on Abaco

Throughout the Abacos you'll find a variety of shopping opportunities.  Marsh Harbour has the most businesses to choose from, including duty-free shopping where you can get luxury goods at low prices, craft centers known as straw markets, and even some art galleries.  The other islands in the chain will typically have a few grocery stores and souvenir shops, but the other categories are hit or miss. 

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you enjoy shopping for souvenirs or gifts you should consider visiting Vert's Model Ship Shoppe, which is found within Green Turtle Cay, in northwestern Abaco. Typical operating hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Guests will be able to find them on Corner of Bay Street.

A second possibility is Golden Reef Discovery Shoppe, which is found less than a hundred yards (about a hundred meters) of Vert's Model Ship Shoppe. Commemorate your time on the island with quality hand-made (and sometimes imported) gifts that represent the Bahamian way of life. If you want to know more, call them at (242) 365-4511.

A third shop to consider is Albury's Sail Shop. A family-owned business known for fashionable but sturdy canvas clothing and accessories, this spot is popular among sailors. The property is located on Front Road.
