Ecotourism is so important here that each year the community dedicates the entire month of October to pay homage to the natural environment. Andros is the ecotourism destination of The Bahamas because of its large pristine, terrestrial and marine ecosystems. The western side of Andros is a nursery for countless marine and wildlife species. It’s also the largest protected park system in the country.
06. Family Fun
There are many fun-filled activities for the entire family that also offer learning opportunities. Visit the candy-striped lighthouse of Hope Town on Elbow Cay. Enjoy a stroll through the pastel-shaded gingerbread houses of picturesque New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. Or, visit with the historic shipbuilders of Man O’ War Cay.
Andros is rich with cultural and historical landmarks, including a lighthouse with cannons from an old wreck, an old pirate’s well and cave, native colony ruins, quaint towns with evocative names, plus a sisal and a batik factory. You’ll also want to experience crab-catching, a staple of the economy, and an outing can be arranged for you to see locals in action.

Cultural tours provide a glimpse of where and how the locals live. You’ll visit places like Government House to see the changing of the guard, craft centers for an inside look into how our Androsia Batik fabric is made and scenic towns and settlements. You’ll also get to sample authentic Bahamian food and drink.
08. Water Sports
The Exumas are one of the prettiest settings for snorkeling in the entire Bahamas. Notable sites include Loaded Barrel Reef, with large sea beds of staghorn corals; Liz Lee Shoals, a shallow reef with plenty of brain corals and a variety of soft corals; Duck Cay South, a tiered reef with a kaleidoscope of colorful sea plant life; and Three Sisters, three shallow reefs teeming with small schools of fish.
