Andros is the largest archipelago in the Bahamas, measuring 23,000 square miles, but is politically regarded as a single island.
Vast stretches of unexplored backcountry dominate the landscape, making Andros a fantastic destination for nature lovers and eco-tourists. Fringing the eastern coastline is the world’s third largest barrier reef, and the waters are filled with enormous underwater caves and an abundance of colourful marine life.
The western shoreline boasts incredible fishing spots, too, with Andros considered the best location in the world for bonefishing, a premier gamefish. There are, of course, also some superb beaches with immaculate white sand and bright blue waters, so there’s something for everyone on this Bahamian gem.
As a country with many islands and archipelagos, travelling by ferry is a popular way to get around in the Bahamas. From Andros, you can sail across to New Providence from the port in Andros Town on the east coast.
