There is a lot to recommend a getaway on Andros Island, from the expansive national park system to the fact that it is the Bonefish Capital of the world.  One thing remains true about almost every person to visit the island -- they always leave room for at least a few hours on the beach.  Surrounding the island is the third largest barrier reef in the world, which means calm surf and smooth sands are a commonplace.
