Last time we were there, about two years ago, we hiked down using an old established logger road. But now, someone has built a home there and the old road is blocked off. We stopped and asked a local how to get there.
Good news. The Delphi Club and others worked together to develop a "Go Around" so that people can still park and walk down. I photographed it so that others may have an easier time finding it.
How to get to Rolling Harbor

We walked from one end of the harbor to the other, delighting in the rolling waves, the beautiful site of the Delphi Club up above on the cliffs, and the magnificent coral rocks circling out and protecting the harbor from the big ocean waves, but not too much.
I am constantly taken aback by the beauty of the small harbors tucked in along the Abaco shores. Rolling Harbor is one trip that I think we will become a tradition for our family to visit. It is a very special place, so nearby and reasonably accessible. We need to encourage others to continue to use the footpath down so that it doesn't grow over and become inaccessible.

Another great way to visit Rolling Harbor is to call ahead to the Delphi Club and make a reservation for dinner at The Delphi Club Lodge. Come a bit before dinner and take a walk down their lovely steps to the beach. Then return to the Lodge and have a drink while sitting on their great porch. Watch the sun set over Rolling Harbor. Then step inside The Lodge for a really nice dinner, in a really great setting, with good friends.
We are lucky to have the choice to visit Rolling Harbor through a private bone fishing club and to also be able to visit it using public access ways. It is important that there are options so that all of us might continue to visit and share such a beautiful place.
