The Bahamas is an archipelago of over 700 breathtaking cays and islands. The island chain is located approximately 80 miles off the coast of Florida and stretches 500 miles southeast. Known for its untouched beauty, The Bahamas is an idyllic resort destination.
Andros Island is part of a collection of islands referred to as “The Family Islands”. Locally known as ‘The Sleeping Giant’, Andros is the largest of the Bahamian islands and is comprised of three land masses; North, Central and South Andros. Its unique location and geography provides a home for some of the most wondrous marine life and extraordinary wildlife. An island steeped in nautical history, there is more to this archipelago than meets the eye.
Along with a rich culture and a collection of authentic Bahamian businesses, South Andros is practically untouched by modernization and is home to less than 3% of all Bahamians. The island’s population of approximately 2,000 reside in 18 small settlements that stretch along the Eastern coast of the island and are connected by the only road on South Andros, “The Queen’s Highway”.
Just east of Caerula Mar is the third-largest barrier reef (after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Central America’s Belize Barrier Reef). It impressively spans over 140 miles and is home to a variety of marine life. Dispersed throughout the island is the world’s largest collection of Blue Holes. These geological underwater formations are unique to the island and are a must see for all diving enthusiasts. South Andros Island is a fascinating place to explore and experience. With unique marine life and ecosystems, South Andros is home to a large array of beautiful wildlife and geographical wonders. Caerula Mar will help you to experience everything the island and its surrounding area has to offer. This piece of the world is truly unique and we are very proud to be a part of it.
