For 45 years, Treasure Cay Marina has specialized in exciting and assorted amenities.
Treasure Cay Marina, Abaco, Bahamas
An award-winning marina
with natural beauty
and diverse amenities
by Laura Dunn
Abaco’s Treasure Cay Marina has an award–winning white sand beach, 18–hole golf course, a variety of dining options, and 150 slips with full–service. This deep–water marina is centrally located within Treasure Cay Beach, Marina & Golf Resort. Diving, snorkeling, fishing, nature tours, tennis, yoga, and myriad other activities are also available.
Cliff Boatle, the dock master at Treasure Cay Marina, has worked there for 15 of its 45 plus years. He calls it the perfect spot for provisioning because they have everything onsite, including doctors and bankers. He also praises its location at the resort. “Our entire layout was provided to us by nature, not sculpted out of rock by man! This makes it a delight to walk the dock and watch the turtles, tarpons, and others frolic in their own environment provided to them by nature.”
Boatle recommends the Tipsy Seagull, an indoor/outdoor community dining and bar area that overlooks the marina. Popular with guests, this “hot spot” converts into a pizzeria on Thursday nights, has weekly entertainment, dancing into the early hours of the morning, and serves tropical drinks, beer and wine every day.
Summer is an exciting time at Treasure Cay Marina for fishing enthusiasts. The Treasure Cay Marina will soon play host to the Bahamas Billfish Championship May 26–31, then again from June 2–7 for their annual Treasure Cay Billfish Tournament.
