At 2,300 square miles, this island has a base of porous limestone. Early visitors from Spain named it ‘Espiritu Santo’ - the Island of the Holy Spirit, and it’s easy to understand their sense of reverence.
 
Once a haven for pirates, Andros is the largest island of the Bahamas, but also the least developed. While every island in the Bahamas has its share of attractions, they’re most abundant on Andros, where there are more opportunities to get involved with nature than anywhere else in this majestic region.
 
That makes it a very appealing destination for adventurous travelers and relaxation seekers alike.
