Despite being the largest island in the Bahamas, Andros may well be the least developed of those that are inhabited.  You won't find sprawling resorts here.  Instead, it is fishing lodges, guesthouses, and small rental properties that take up space.  Visitors headed this way don't expect to encounter a lot of activities, instead they are hoping for a peaceful place to collect their thoughts – and maybe do a little fishing or diving while they are at it.
