The Bahamas Out Islands is a stretch of 700-plus untouched islands and cays straight east of Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. There are swimming pigs in The Exumas, pink sand beaches in Eleuthera and a little bit of everything in The Abacos. WBGD Travel Correspondent Katie Kearney went to The Abacos and stayed at The Abaco Club at Winding Bay. She played the plush golf course, enjoyed the beach and spoke with Abaco Club resident and three-time European Tour winner, Thomas Aiken. They talk South Africa, scuba diving, fishing, golf and more — take a look.
