Bahamas Bonefishing at Caerula Mar Club

Experience the bonefishing adventure of a lifetime on Andros Island in the Bahamas.

South Andros may be known as “The Bonefishing Capital of the World” but there’s more than bone fishing on offer if you choose to stay at Caerula Mar Club.

Enjoy specialty coffees & smoothies at our whimsical Switcha café, a casual lunch at our oceanside Driffs bar & grill and a gourmet dinner at Lusca, named for the mythological creature who lives in the blue holes of South Andros.

See our activities page for the many activities, in addition to fishing, that you will want to enjoy. Our pool, complimentary watersports equipment and bicycles might be all of the additional “activity” you require, but, you really should treat yourself to a massage in our oceanfront Spa to complete your experience.

There is something for everyone at Caerula Mar Club.
