Andros is a rural island which appeals to the eco tourist, and adventurer.
Known as the 'fly fishing capital of the world', our anglers find excitement and tranquility walking the flats which are just minutes from the Houseboat or boating into the incredible wilderness of Fresh Creek, The Joulter Cays or the Bights to name just the famous locations.
Andros also boasts of having the third largest barrier reef in the world just minutes off shore, this reef is considered one of the healthiest in the Caribbean and divers can enjoy a variety of experiences, from 185 feet over the wall to shallow patch reefs.
Birders rave about the endemic and migrant birds they can observe here piping plovers winter here and all year long you'll be able to see the shoreline, forest, coppice and mangrove birds.
Kayakers drift to remote beaches up the creek on an in going tide, then spend the day birding, fishing or exploring the blue holes before catching a ride home with the out going tide.
Star gazers enjoy the wide open vistas, the darkness of the island means there is no man made light to spoil the views and the stars are easily the best show in town.
Just a few minutes walk from the Houseboat there are man made canals which were dug in the 1950's, these canals are great for swimming laps in a safe, refreshing and comfortable location.
Two miles away the art seeker will find the Androsia cottage industry, an island batik factory where beautiful cotton fabric is hand waxed and dyed with the vibrant colors which abound in nature.
At the harbour mouth at Andros Town there is a beautiful sandy beach and a Lighthouse which was build it 1892, the brave can still climb to the top!
Andros is the beach combers haven with miles and miles (and miles) of sandy deserted beaches, here you'll share your picnic with the birds and be able to blow away the cobwebs in your mind. Of special note is Somerset creek beach which is one of those places which inspired the invention of the word 'wow', because it is a wow so beautiful beach.
Andros is home to the most blue holes in the world, our blue holes are world famous for their crystal clear fresh water, and some of them are easily accessed for swimming. Hikers can walk for miles through the National Parks.
Andros has something for anyone who loves the outdoors.
