Beaches on Andros

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.

Love Hill Beach: A long stretch of smooth, tan-colored sand, Love Hill Beach leads to Stanyard Creek, an area known for coconut trees.

Another location worth considering is Morgan's Bluff Beach. Adjacent to a harbor, Morgan's Bluff Beach is a quite stretch of white sand backed by Australian pines, which give the edge of the beach a bit of shade. The breath-taking aquamarine waters are typically cool and calm.
