Fishing: Andros Island is well-known as the best bonefishing destination on Earth and Swain’s Cay Lodge on Mangrove Cay in the centre of Andros is the ideal base from which to fish these very magical flats that are also home to resident tarpon, large barracuda, jacks, and several species of shark.
We have handpicked the best local independent guides who have bonefish in their blood. Whether you want large numbers of fish in the 3-5 pound range or would rather hunt single and double big bones of 6-10 pounds, our guides know just the spot for the wind and tide conditions. There are flats on Andros for all bonefishing objectives – some with enormous numbers of fish where you will see school after school, others where the fish are in pairs or cruising alone, but these are the big ones. 20-fish days with an average size of 4 pounds are certainly not uncommon here.
If you’re looking for the perfect fishing vacation you’ve found it at Swain’s Cay Lodge.
Weddings: It's hard to imagine a more romantic experience for your special day than the backdrop of our dazzling white powder-sand beach framed with swaying coconut palms and gin-clear gently lapping water. Our traditional Bahamian beachside wedding pavilion will be elegantly dressed with delicate white floating fabrics and flowers, a place where dreams are realized.
Whether it’s an informal private ceremony or a larger gathering of family & friends, we can create a bespoke wedding package for you, as simple or as extravagant as you like. We take care of all the legalities and paperwork too leaving you to simply enjoy the magical moment with your loved ones.
Reefside Restaurant & Bar: Located right on the beach our Reefside Restaurant & Bar is the best on the island and serves up delicious 3-course dinners with fresh lobster, fish, ribs, chicken and steaks on the menu. Also open for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon snack, our fresh home-cooked food is always popular.
The beachside terrace is the idyllic spot to relax with an ice-cold Kalik or tropical cocktail after a day out on the flats and watch the sky turn purple and orange over the water. This is where you gather to eat, drink and socialize with other guests and your hosts.
