Map of Elbow Cay and the settlement of Hope Town in Abaco Bahamas

Hope Town is “picture perfect” and looks like you are in Paradise, the views make anyone want to be a photographer. The famous candy striped red and white light house over looks most of Hope Town and looks like a mother watching over her children. Hope Town was founded by the Loyalist Wyannie Malone and her family in 1785 and resembles New England with clapboard, brightly colored homes and white picket fences with the flamboyant tropical gardens.

When exploring the village, the streets may seem like sidewalks to you and are lined with rainbow colors of local flowers especially the bougainvillea and hibiscus of every shade. There is no motorized traffic allowed within the village, so walking or bicycling are you options. Boats of every shape and description pass through the protected Hope Town Harbour. The Wyannie Malone Museum is one of the most popular sites to see. Named after the founder of this settlement, it is filled with historic photos, documents, maps, quilts, china, simple treasures and other heirlooms of the past. For those who want to see the independent and extraordinary survival skills of these brave original loyalists, you will see it continues on in the present day local residents.
