Hey Lovelies!!! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, that’s because Rory and I are travelling. We are currently in Jamaica having a whale of a time! However, I will share our Jamaica experience in a future post. Two weekends ago, we went on a sweet escape to Andros (Big yard) it is the largest inhabited island of The Bahamas. Although it’s just fifteen minutes away from Nassau by plane, it was my very first time visiting and I am super thrilled to share this experience with you!
We arrived in Nicholls Town, North Andros early Saturday morning and it reminds me so much of the rural parishes in Jamaica. From the crisp air, the wooden shops and the style of the houses. The people from this island are so warm and friendly.
We opted to stay at Andros Island Beach Resort. Our cottage stared right at the sea, nothing is more relaxing than the splashing sound of the water, it is so serene and therapeutic!
The room was comfortable and cosy.
After we got settled,we grabbed breakfast at Angies- a popular little spot for food. I had stewed fish seasoned to perfection! It was one of the best I’ve had in a long while. The rest of the morning was spent hunting for a swimsuit. (Yes, it’s still swimsuit season in The Bahamas!) There weren’t many options for shopping; fortunately I found the only small size at a boutique right around the corner from where we stayed.We went back to our room to catch up on some well needed rest.
We spent the remainder of the day soaking up the warm sun by the beach. It is no secret that the islands of The Bahamas are highlighted by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The last day on the island. We started our day with some mouth-watering pig feet souse from The Island Comfort Bed and Breakfast. Island food SWEET! it’s a firework of spices and flavours (I would stay just for the food alone). We bumped into an excellent tour guide(Eugiene) from Pineville Motel who gave us an impromptu tour of the town.
Pineville Motel Forest Garden
This is more than just a motel! This spot stimulates an island vibe, from its zoo to the variety of cultural designs. I even experienced a taste of junkunno.
Named after the renowned pirate, Henry Morgan. It is the highest peak in North Andros overlooking the ocean.
Henry Morgan’s Cave
We visited Henry Morgan’s Cave in search of his hidden treasure but we were hard on luck.
Uncle Charlie’s Blue Hole
Also called Little Frenchman Blue Hole. It is the most popular inland blue hole in North Andros. The Blue Hole sports a natural under-water cave.
That was all the time we had before our flight back to Nassau. Our Andros trip was certainly peaceful and relaxing. I wish I had more time to explore other parts of the island.
If you are looking for a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, hop over to Andros!!!!!!
Until next time,
