Liquor Stores

There are three liquor stores on the island stocked with an assortment of beer, wines and spirits.  Although beer and wine are generally pricier than in the U.S., the spirits are definitely a great deal.  Two of the stores are located right in Hope Town.  Hope Town Wine & Spirits is located across the harbour (accessible only by boat) at Lighthouse Marina, and Lighthouse Liquors is in the center of town.  The last liquor store, A & E Liquors, is located closer to the White Sound Area.

Medical Services

There is a small clinic in Hope Town that is open to visitors and residents.  Although there is a fee (not including medication) for visitors, the nurse is very knowledgeable, and often has the medication and services you need, saving you a trip to Marsh Harbour. 

Hope Town Clinic - (242) 366-0108 BS


The closest hospital is in Nassau, as there are none in Abaco.  In the case of emergencies, there is a government-run clinic in Marsh Harbour.  Hope Town also has a volunteer Fire & Rescue team, and BASRA (Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association), who are on-call for emergency situations.  In severe emergencies, patients are airlifted to Nassau, or Florida.

Hardware Store
