Andros Island is full of activities to do both in and out of the water. Whether it's fishing for trophy-size fish, exploring ancient ruins, bird-watching, hunting for buried treasure, meandering through quaint coastal towns and villages, shopping for Batik fabrics or simply soaking up the tropical sunshine, Andros Island has something for everyone.
Bicycles are free for guest use. Tour the areas surrounding Nicholl’s Town. We have maps and suggested itineraries or bike a few miles south to an inland blue hole for a fresh water swim.
Bonefishing, reef fishing, deep sea fishing—you can do it all! You can hire a guide for a day or just cast a line off the point right on your own private beach. Andros is known as the 'Bonefish Capital of the World'.
Book A Massage:
A massage therapist will come to you, enjoy a massage on the beach or under a shady tree with a relaxing breeze
Diving and Snorkeling:
Andros Island has world renowned diving and fantastic reefs for snorkeling. You can dive during the day, night dives, shark dives, and one-on-one specialty dives anytime. All of this on the Andros Barrier Reef - the 3rd largest reef system in the world! A day trip by boat can be arranged for a fee plus there is plenty of great snorkeling along the shore.
Wild Boar Hunting:
Andros has an abundance of wild boar. You can hire a guide to take you hunting for a day through the mangrove swamps! This can be a dangerous trek so please do so at your own risk. This certainly is not for the faint of heart, wild boars are vicious animals and have been known to massacre multiple, pit bull dogs in one trip. Or, on a more mellow approach, you can purchase a side of boar from the hunters and cook it over a nice flame on the BBQ (we prefer this method). If you ask nicely, you might even get to keep a few tusks from their recent catch.
There are over 200 species of birds that inhabit the Bahamas--and Andros, with its vast undeveloped land, is home to many of them.
One of our favorite activities and can soon be one of yours.
Walking the Beach:
Anytime is a good time to stroll along the beach. It's perfectly safe, day or night.
Being an undeveloped island, imagine the interesting finds on a leisurely walk down a mile or two of virgin beach, you can find the most beautiful shells, sea urchins, dried coral in multiple colors, and whatever the last storm blew onto shore.
Red Bays Basket Weaving:
A remote village settled by Seminole Indians and Blacks in 1821. For many years the settlement lay isolated and could only be reached by boat. The basket-weaving crafts practiced here are detailed and highly advanced. Red Bays is a very different community on Andros, originally settled by the Seminole Indians from Florida. When the US was putting Indians in reservations, a group decided not to accept that 'good deal', and hopped in their little boats, high-tailing it to Andros Island. The people live in a pretty 'rough' style, and it's fascinating to see.
How to buy baskets in Andros:
On Andros, many people in Red Bays make and sell baskets. Miss Marshall's grandchildren: John Grant and Joan Russell are two of the finest. There are no stores here; buying is a casual affair. Ask around and you'll be guided directly to their homes. Ask anyone where Miss Omeilia Marshall lives so you can visit her and choose from a variety of baskets, hats and bags directly from her. Purchase is with cash only. A small selection of Red Bays baskets are also in the boutique
Andros Blue Holes:
Below the surface of Andros Islandis a complex maze of underwater caves called blue holes. Experienced recreational divers can enter from either the ocean or island entrances and retrace the steps of the famous Jacques Cousteau.
Uncle Charlie's Blue Hole:
Jacques Cousteau made this hole famous when, with the use of dye, he proved this inland blue hole connects to the ocean. This is a favorite place for visitors and locals alike to relax near and take in their tropical surroundings.
Captain Bill's Blue Hole:
A large, perfectly round inland blue hole measuring 440 feet in diameter. Both locals and visitors take pleasure in swimming in its crystal blue waters and swinging from a rope overhead.
Located in Pleasant Harbour is an unusual house constructed in the shape of the letter 'A.' On this property is a well, called 'Mariner's Well' by the locals, said to have been used by the crewmen of the sponging era as far back as the early 17th century.
Native Colony Ruins:
About a half-mile south of Pleasant Harbour, on the inland side, are eight stone buildings dating back to the 1930s that represent the old Bahamian style of architecture. They are open for exploration and are excellently preserved due to the fact that, for some unknown reason, they were abandoned and never inhabited.

Tara purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Tara chose Nicholls Town
Choose Andros Island to have a true island getaway experience. Something like a Robinson Crusoe movie with secluded beaches, hot sun and soft breezes. Andros Island is also very quick and easy to get to from most areas across North America. You will love the small village, tikki hut restaurants and beach side bars to enjoy the music, food and dance of the island.
What makes this Villa unique
Andros is the closest island to Nassau which means that to get there, it is an easy, quick 13 minute flight. We will assist to coordinate all travel details getting to the island. In addition, our property is one of the few rental properties with fresh, town, double filtered water. Our water is totally drinkable with a good amount of pressure unlike many island properties where they run on wells and cisterns with limited supply and pressure. Also, we are located in Nicholl's Town within a 2 minute walk of eating and drinking establishments.
