The Andros island in the Bahamas has three ecosystems. The on-shore ecosystems are made up of mangrove forests, shallow sand flats, and a tidal blue hole. Offshore, the Tongue of the Ocean contains a pelagic ecozone and a 6000-foot drop-off. The Andros Bights are also home to various large fish species, including whales, dolphins, and marlin.
Located one mile off the coast of Andros, the Seaglass Villa features a spacious interior and a king-sized bed. There’s also a television with standard cable, an on-site restaurant, Wi-Fi access, and snorkeling gear. The villa is also near the beach, making it perfect for families or groups of friends. If you’re planning on spending most of your time on the beach, you’ll want to rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard.
Andros Island is the largest of the islands in the Bahamas and dwarfs the densely populated neighbor, New Providence. It is a veritable paradise of pristine beaches and crystal clear waters, making it a favorite scuba diving destination. The island has one of the largest coral reefs in the world, and it’s no wonder that famous divers like Jacques Cousteau have chosen this destination for their excursions. A visit to Andros will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
Among the many things to do on Andros, you should visit Morgan’s Bluff on the north end of the island. Its high bluff offers a spectacular view of the andros island bahamas surrounding seas. In the 18th century, Captain Morgan used a goat tied to a light to observe shipwrecks and store his treasure in a cave below. Several generations later, the area has been named Morgan’s Bluff, and you can visit it yourself if you wish.
The wetlands and forests of western Andros are too crowded for harvesting. The northern part of the island is made up of overcrowded young trees. The Bahamas’ climate is comfortable year-round. Andros is a great place to visit for birdwatching. There are hundreds of species of tropical and migratory birds, and you can see them here. There’s a thriving Mennonite mission and small resorts on the island.
In addition to birdwatching, Andros is home to the endangered piping plover. These birds prefer sandy beaches over rocky ones. Other rare species of birds include the Bahama yellowthroat, the west Indian whistling duck, and the Key West quail dove. If you’re looking for an adventurous vacation, Andros is the perfect spot. While there, you can enjoy the starry night sky and the live music around the campfire.
Nicholls Town is the prettiest settlement on Andros. It is hidden behind a palm grove and faces the ocean’s Tongue. The ruins of the brick hotel from a hurricane stand guard over the town. There’s also a graveyard that has been lined with whitewashed concrete walls. You’ll find few tourists in Nicholls Town. However, if you don’t want to visit any of these places, you can always make your way to the town’s ruins.
