Location Summary
Andros Island represents one of the largest unexplored tracts of land in the western hemisphere. With a surface area of 2,300 square miles (6,000 km2), it is far from being a solid land mass as it is actually comprised of a series of smaller islands and riddled with creeks, blue holes and lagoons. The three major islands are from north to south: North Andros, Mangrove Cay, and South Andros. The latter is separated from Mangrove Cay by a large waterway called the South Bight.

The total population of Andros is of 8,000 people with little over 2,000 on South Andros. The latter mainly live in 18 small settlements along the only 30 mile road, the Queen's Highway, running north to south along the east coast of the island. The road is about 35 years old and electricity was only brought to the island in the early 1980s.

Tiamo Resort is located on South Andros, 3 miles along the coast of the South Bight from Drigg's Hill, the northern most settlement on the island. The site is easy to spot due to the large coconut palms on the beach and is rich in wildlife. Several species of plants, reptiles and birds may be seen on the property and the crystal clear waters of the South Bight are rich and corals and a variety of reef fish. Tiamo is an idyllic place for a truly amazing escape, including a multitude of activities (such as scuba diving, fishing, wakeboarding, and canoeing) or simply rest on the private beach.

With crystal clear waters and the world's third-largest barrier reef right on our doorstep, Tiamo offers some fantastic diving where it's possible to discover the amazing underwater world of South Andros; the caverns are the only tidal Blue Holes in the world and are connected to a string of caves running down the island of South Andros. Andros is also known as the bonefishing capital of the world and Tiamo is situated right in the heart of it. Much of the area is a National Nature reserve which gives incredible access to untapped fishing.

Directions to Hotel
From Nassau: Most guests fly to Nassau and take the local commuter flight to Mangrove Cay (MAY) or Congo Town (TZN). Either way, it is a short flight that takes about 20 minutes aboard Western Air’s modern 19 or 33 seat turbo-prop aircraft. If you choose this option, you should plan on arriving in Nassau by 1:30 PM to make the mid-afternoon flight. If you would like, Orvis Travel can reserve your seats on the flight from Nassau to Congo Town for an additional charge, or you can book this flight on your own. Regardless of how you reserve your seats, you will pay for the tickets with cash when you check in for the flight. The flight schedule and fares are subject to change, so make sure you check with Orvis Travel or Western Air for updates before booking your international flights. Return flights from Congo Town to Nassau are typically scheduled for early morning, allowing guests enough time to connect to international flights scheduled after 11:00 AM.

A fun and convenient option for getting from Nassau to Tiamo is a float plane charter. The float plane departs from the executive terminal in Nassau and can deliver passengers right on the beach in front of the resort. The float plane is perfectly suited to 2 passengers and their luggage. It is also possible to charter a larger land based aircraft to fly from Nassau to Congo Town, or Mangrove Cay. Orvis Travel will be happy to provide some charter recommendations.

From Fort Lauderdale, Florida: Watermakers Air offers direct flights from Fort Lauderdale to Congo Town twice a day. We would recommend this option if you can arrive in Fort Lauderdale early enough to catch the mid afternoon flight. Private charters from Ft. Lauderdale are also available.
