Island Focus: Andros
The largest island in The Bahamas, Andros, which is home to world-class diving with countless blue holes, thriving coral reefs, numerous shipwrecks, and national forests, remains virtually untouched. Andros’ particular geography means that it offers breathtaking dive sites with shallow coral gardens and the spectacular Andros Barrier Reef which trails off the island’s east coast. Among the island’s five parks, the West Side National Park protects 1.5 million acres of pristine wilderness; and to the east, the North & South Marine Parks protect 8,500 acres of the Andros Barrier Reef, which is the world’s third largest barrier reef. It is 90 miles long and home to over 160 species of fish and coral! In addition to water adventures, travellers can visit the island’s world-famous batik fabric and garment factory, Androsia. Brightly coloured authentic Bahamian hand-dyed cotton fabric, these garments are inspired by elements found in the island’s environment and Bahamian culture. Visitors can learn about Andros’ iconic artistic history, tour the factory, watch the artisans as they wax, cut and dye these beautifully coloured fabrics, and make a two-yard piece of batik to take home themselves.
