The Bahamas, an archipelago of over 700 cays and islands, comprises an island chain located 80 miles off the coast of Florida and stretching 500 miles Southeast. Notable for its beauty, it is an idyllic resort destination. Part of a collection known as The Family Islands, and locally called The Sleeping Giant, Andros is the largest island composed of three land masses: North, Central, and South. Steeped in nautical history, Andros Island’s unique location and geography provide a home for extraordinary marine and wildlife.
With a population of 2,000 (less than 3% of all Bahamas), South Andros is home to 18 small settlements that stretch along the eastern coast of the island, connected by the only road, The Queen’s Highway. Maintaining their rich culture and operating a variety of small Bahamian businesses, the people of South Andros serve their community well. And now, many of them are also an active part of the Caerula Mar community.
With its complex ecosystems, South Andros is home to many natural wonders: wildlife, marine life and geographical formations. Measuring 190 miles long, the Andros Barrier Reef is the world’s third-largest barrier reef (after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Central America Belize Barrier Reef) and runs parallel to the eastern coast of the island. Dispersed throughout and unique to the island is the world’s largest collection of blue holes, geological underwater structures that are a must-see for all diving enthusiasts. South Andros island and the surrounding areas are fascinating places to explore. Start your adventure by consulting with Caerula Mar’s Concierge.
