The History of Abaco Sun Magazine

The Abaco Sun story began in 2013, when Amanda launched, a personal blog to keep family and friends updated as we restored her ancestral home on Green Turtle Cay.

Abaco Sun Magazine originated in 2013 as

And then. On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian devastated so many of our family members and friends.

With few other sources of current information available, it occurred to us that we could use the blog to ensure that Abaconians, second homeowners and visitors had the accurate and timely information they needed.

In 2020, we expanded the site and renamed it

Since then, we’ve assembled the most comprehensive online source of post-Dorian information, including an Abaco Visitor’s Guide, an Abaco Business Directory, emergency contact information, and a list of ways people around the world can support Abaco’s recovery.

As of June 2022, has had more than 1.3 million page views, from site visitors in virtually every country around the globe.

Now, with the launch of Abaco Sun magazine, we’re expanding once more, utilizing our 80+ years of combined experience in journalism, publishing, marketing and public relations to invest in a community we love as it recovers, rises and thrives. 

We hope you’ll join us on this journey!
