Golf carts are the preferred method of getting around our 6 mile long island. There are several rental agencies on the island offering both electric and gas carts. We recommend Elbow Cay Carts at 242-366-0530. We can assist you in the rentals of carts and boats.

We would highly recommend renting a boat. Elbow Cay is a great jumping off point to explore the diverse and visually spectacular chain of islands collectively known as The Abacos. Our waters are some of the clearest and most beautiful in the world. You can fish, visit other settlements, find deserted beaches and picnic or snorkel on numerous reefs including National Sea Parks. There are several rental companies listed at the house. If you wish to rent ahead of your arrival, we recommend Abaco Dorado at 242-367-1035. Ask for C.J. and mention the name of our house.
