Andros is the ecotourism destination of The Bahamas because of its large pristine, terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Each year, the community dedicates the entire month of October to pay homage to their natural environment. The western side of Andros is a nursery for countless marine and wildlife species, and it also has the largest protected park system in the country. You can explore the Blue Holes National Park, with more of these unique geological formations than any other place in the world. Or, get lost in the hundreds of miles of winding creeks or wetlands, and see rare protected wildlife: the Andros iguana, more than 120 resident and migratory bird species, and 20 varieties of wild orchids and land crabs peeking from limestone crevasses. Guided tours will help you find these and other rare and memorable sights.
