Activities on Andros

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.  


Andros Diving

Divers coming to Andros will be pleased to know that the Andros Reef is less than a ten minute boat ride from shore. This makes the island a great spot to enjoy, or learn, scuba.

You'll find 5 dive operators and at least 8 different dive sites to choose from. Anyone who needs to find more details concerning scuba diving in this area, can do so here.


With its mix of inland waterways and natural beaches, Andros is a prime spot for bonefishers and flyfishers. Off course, being in the Bahamas, there is also some option for those looking to head out a bit further offshore.

If you have some avid fishermen vacationing with you, they'll be pleased to know they can fish with one of the 12 charter operators in this area. To read our full guide to deep sea fishing, go to this article.
