Andros Islands Bahamas


Andros is regarded "the bonefish capital of the world," where anglers from around the globe match wits with these challenging gamefish. It is also rapidly gaining interest as a spectacular dive site, with good reason--off the east coast of this island lies the third largest barrier reef in the world. The 12 foot water around the reef suddenly plunges 6000 feet into the Tongue of the Ocean, and contains colorful marine life of nearly all species, some of the world's deepest blue holes, and spectacular coral gardens and underwater caverns.

Among other claims to fame, Andros is known for its "blue holes". Essentially, these are narrow pits that plunge as much as 60m (200 feet) straight down through rock and coral into murky depths
. Although Jacques Cousteau made a film -- making the Blue Holes of Andros famous -- most of the holes, like most of the surface of the island , remain unexplored. Tour boats leaving from Small Hope Bay Lodge will take you to these holes.

Getting around

Nearby settlements include: San Andros, Nicholls Town, Lowe Sound, Staniard Creek, Mangrove Cay, Driggs Hill, Kemps Bay, Long Bay Cays, Bluff, Deep Creek, Little Creek, Pleasant Bay, Mars Bay, Smith’s Hill, Black Point, Behring Point, Cargill Creek, Calabash Bay, Love Hill and Stafford Creek.

Inter-island Bahamas mailboats depart from Nassau and run weekly roundtrip to and from all islands.

Taxi service is available. Although metered rates vary by island, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

Rental cars are also available. You can use your home driver’s license for up to three months, but remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left.

Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.
