Andros Island, the boss of the Bahamas

By far the largest island in the Bahamas archipelago, Andros Island is also the most untouched. Hundreds of sandy coves, islets, and cays are connected by lush mangroves, and it's all surrounded by the azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Home to the third-largest barrier reef in the world, it's a snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing paradise. Andros Island vacation rentals are well served by deserted beaches, relaxed bars, and seafood restaurants, which makes it the kind of place where you want to kick back on a hammock and let the world just get on with it.

Tongue in cheek? Only in Andros Island

While Andros is the largest of the Bahamian islands, it's actually the least developed. But it's home to the third-largest barrier reef in the world (190 miles long), which is packed with colorful marine life and is a prime spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. But don't leave your fishing rod at home, because it also has the Tongue of the Ocean, a mile-deep abyss which draws the fishing set from all over the region. Book an Andros vacation rental close to the hundreds of deserted beaches and have the best of the Bahama's natural attractions right on your doorstep.

Dive into Captain Bill's Hole—only on Andros Island

One of the biggest draws to Andros Island and its surrounding waters is that it has the highest concentration of "blue holes" in the world. From your Andros Island vacation rental, visit the Blue Holes National Park and explore some of these incredible limestone caves. Don't miss a cheeky dive into Captain Bill's Hole, the tongue-in-cheek name makes it the most famous of them all. Discover unique cave fish and invertebrates, and birds like the Bahama oriole and the great lizard cuckoo that call the park home.

Andros is a haven for migratory snowbirds

Any time is a good time to visit the Bahamas. This glorious archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean attracts flocks of snowbirds seeking some much-needed winter sun. Winter is high season, when blue skies and endless sunshine, not to mention temperatures of up to 85 degrees, makes it the busiest time to visit. For a wider choice of Andros Island vacation rentals, visit between mid-April and early December, when the crowds have thinned, and you get the beaches to yourself. The downside, of course, is the threat of hurricanes that often batter this stretch of the Atlantic.

Andros Island—is it real life, or just a fanta-sea?

Covering an area of almost 3,700 square miles, Andros Island is the largest island in the Bahamas archipelago, by some stretch. Although it's mostly uninhabited, there are pockets of civilisation among the lush mangroves. It does have a national park, called the West Side, but this 1.5 million-acre mangrove is protected by the Bahamas National Trust and pretty much only accessible if you arrive by boat. It's home to a variety of indigenous marine life and birds, including the Andros rock iguana and the West Indian flamingo.
