Just a few minutes down a winding road from The Abaco Club, 13 miles south of Hope Town by sea, lies the picturesque oasis known as Little Harbour. It’s here that The Abaco Club is creating dedicated boat slips for club members, along with a members’ clubhouse and sundries shop. Little Harbour is sheltered on all sides, and quite shallow at low tide. But for boaters, it’s a very special kind of paradise, a hidden enclave that’s at the same time one of Abaco’s worst-kept secrets. In the 1950’s, Randolph and Margot Johnson settled here with their children, reportedly living in nearby caves while they worked to create a small art community. Randolph Johnson established a foundry here, and became internationally known for his bronze sculptures. The Johnson family still operates the foundry and associated gallery, as well as neighboring Pete’s Pub—an open-air beach bar serving some of the freshest fish and most creative rum drinks in the islands. There’s nothing fancy about Pete’s, as its sand floor and roof constructed of colorful t-shirts and flags will attest. But the excellent food is uniquely Bahamian and well worth a visit. A favorite with Abaco Club members and visiting boaters alike, Pete’s is an Abaco institution, and one of the many things that make the Little Harbour area so unique.
