Andros is the largest island in the Bahamas at 2,300 square miles, stretching for some 100 miles from north to south. The west side is perhaps the most remote area in the Bahamas with mangrove creeks and shallow waters, well stocked with bonefish and other wonders. The east side lies along the Tongue of the Ocean with the 3rd largest barrier reef in the world, an international attraction for sport divers and fisherman. The Tongue of the Ocean has depths well over one mile (over 6,000 feet). Its waters are home to AUTEC, the Atlantic Undersea Testing and Evaluation Center, where American and allied submarines and naval ships are tested in cooperation with the Bahamas Government.
Andros is also famous for its blue holes, and much of the area is protected by National Parks. The island is cut into several sections by large creeks or “bights” that run all the way through the island from east to west. These waterways divide the island into distinct areas, North and South Bight separating north Andros and south Andros respectively and Middle Bight running between Mangrove Cay and Big Wood Cay in central Andros.
