Cherokee Sound
There are about 100 homes in Cherokee Sound, many of which are built in the typical Bahamian style architecture (porches, dormer windows and high pitched roofs), painted in bright colors, giving a real feel of being in the islands. Residents are descendants of English Loyalists that came out to settle the colonies in the 1770's. The residents take great pride in their community as can be seen in the well kept houses and surrounding areas.

"Cherokee is the place to be" - a favourite saying often used by the people of Cherokee Sound, Abaco to describe their tranquil little settlement. One of Abaco's best kept secrets, Cherokee Sound is a quiet vacation spot, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Cherokee Sound is located about 25 miles South of Marsh Harbour, Abaco, which is the third largest city in the Bahamas. Marsh Harbour is famous for the fact that it has one street light only!

Explore the "Flats" Best Bone Fishing in Abaco
Another saying that the folks in Cherokee have is "We have lots of water, but it is spread thin, thin, thin". Cherokee Sound is sand banked and when tide goes out, the sand banks come right out of the water and you can walk for miles without getting your feet wet. This makes for a fun time of looking for seashells and sand dollars.

Some of the finest bone-fishing guides in Abaco reside in Cherokee Sound. They abound with lots of knowledge and experience about the very popular "catch and release sport" and have countless fish tales to tell! There are lots of marls nearby and one can also walk out on to the "flats" and do a bit of bone-fishing.

Deep Sea Fishing
Deep waters are just around "the Point" where you can enjoy an exciting day of fishing for Marlin, Sail Fish, Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo.

People come by vehicle and boat to enjoy the laid back atmosphere of this all- time favourite hang out. They serve up platters of fresh fish, peas n rice and pineapple/walnut coleslaw. The food is delicious and there is no shortage of drinks!
