Superb!

Unmissable experience if you get to Andros. The Laberynt is superb! The Garden and the Garden Wall in the Tongue of the Sea are also great.

Health reef, clear water with incredible visibility. Easy access to the reef, low currents, and impressive aquatic life.

Turquoise water, wonderful locals serving up delicious Bahamian dishes; scrumptious home baked bread; great snorkeling; bone fishing. Nicolls Town has places to rent and an empty beach. Discover Andros on FB, talk to Chris Curry. Paradise awaits and old fashioned relaxation.

The reef was easy to get to, and pretty. Many different places to go. There was not an abundance of fish life, but there was enough.
