Discover the massive Bahamian island known as Great Abaco while vacationing in an Inspirato home. Stay in the four-bedroom Seacret Escape featuring open sun decks that overlook the ocean, a short walk away. The home belongs to The Abaco Club on Winding Bay, a laidback resort anchored by a Scottish-style links golf course.
Other resort amenities include an infinity-edge pool, full-service European spa, restaurant and beach bar. Enjoy the island’s shallow beaches while swimming or saltwater fly fishing.
Bonefishing in Abaco is more than a pastime; for serious fly fishers, casting for the "gray ghost" has reached cult-like status. If you like to skip a fly across a mountain stream, you'll love the moment a bonefish shoots into view, like a phantom, to seize your bait in the crystal-clear flats. But the islands' allure doesn't end there. Make time to indulge in more laid-back fashion: leisurely island-hopping, lounging on a secluded beach, enjoying a fully catered sunset sail or toasting the view from the porch of your cottage. You'll find peaceful waters for the kids to explore and quiet beaches for a morning stroll too.

Great Abaco was once a site for pine tree logging. Today, exploring these pine forests will bring you up close to wild horses, cows, boars and the endangered Abaco parrots. The forest's old logging trails lead to secluded beaches.
Crudely marked signs through logging trails make Sawmill Sink Blue Hole a bit hard to find; but a dip in the historic treasure trove, featured by National Geographic for the ancient fossils found deep within, is worth the trouble.
The Abacos' most famous landmark, Elbow Reef Lighthouse, is one of only a handful of manually operated lighthouses in the world. Built in 1862 and 89 feet high, this candy-striped landmark offers great views of the surrounding cays.
