Mangrove Cay

Mangrove Cay, the boat-building center of Andros, is often described as an Island within an Island. It is separated from North and Central Andros by straits known as North and Middle Bight.

This is one of the few places where a visitor can still get a glimpse of the way of life that characterized The Bahamas half a century ago. Dishes prepared in outside rock ovens and pothole-farming methods are just a few practices that distinguish residents of Mangrove Cay from many other Family Island communities.

Recreational pursuits here are all nature based: scuba diving, snorkeling, walking miles of secluded beaches, kayak tours, bicycling, nature walks, and world class bonefishing.
