Keep Your Friends Close and Your Anemones Closer

June 22, 2015

If you've had enough beach time for one day and are ready to explore the wonders of the deep, Andros is home to the Andros Great Barrier Reef, the third largest barrier reef in the world. 190 miles long and at some points over 6,000 feet deep, the reef is unique in the region due to the luxuriant growth of healthy coral and very low incidence of coral disease, creating a breathtakingly beautiful experience for those who dive it. Located just fifteen minutes from our Bahamas beachfront resort, the Andros Great Barrier Reef is home to a wide variety of colorful fish as well as loggerhead turtles and even some hammerhead sharks. Easily accessible and a good location for either advanced or beginner divers, the Andros Barrier Reef is an incredible experience not to be missed.
