Mangrove Cay Club
The largest of the Out Islands, and of all the islands of the Bahamas, is Andros. Flat and heavily forested, Andros is not a single island, but a labyrinth of islands, cays and waterways. Andros is also the least populated island with a mere 8,000 souls. All live in small settlements on the eastern side of the island leaving the vast interior and western shores untouched. To our first time visitors, it is almost incomprehensible that such a place can still exist in the world. Mangrove Cay is an island in the center of Andros, separated by waterways that bisect the island from east to west. These are the North, Middle and South Bights, themselves dotted with countless uninhabited cays. Combined with the vast banks and mudflats of the West Side of Andros, this is the largest area of bonefish habitat in the world, establishing Andros as the “Bonefishing Capital of the World”. Our cottages are each split into two guest suites. On the outside wall of each suite is an extensive rod rack with a bucket for cleaning reels and a freshwater hose for washing rods and all other equipment each day – an important feature for a saltwater lodge. Both outside and inside the entrance way are hanging pegs or hooks. There are sliding doors out on to the veranda, which overlooks the Middle Bight. It is not a problem to check the weather in the morning! Our air-conditioning units are adjustable and our hot water is plentiful and hot 24 hours a day. Each cottage has its own system so there is no competition for hot water and we have worked hard to ensure excellent shower pressure. Our rooms have plenty of electrical outlets for camera, video and laptop computer charging.
