TravelAnne Video Favorite! An Island Full of Holes! Andros, Bahamas
Updated: Apr 16
Andros – the largest island in The Bahamas. An island so vast and green, locals call it the Big Yard. There are pine trees and palms as far as the eye can see, and blue holes—magical vertical voids formed by water and limestone and thousands of years. There are more than 150 of them here, tucked inland and along the shore. They’re geological wonders, otherworldly to say the least, and there’s one that’s just right for an epic afternoon.

Travel is tricky but not impossible. You need a trusted advisor to guide you along the way.
When you see the tiny sign that says “blue hole,” you're there. Just follow the winding trail until you reach a clearing, and you can't miss Captain Bill's. It’s a little bit like a playground, if playgrounds had swimming holes. A deck hangs over the water's edge so, go ahead, jump right in.
At Captain Bill's, you can spend hours jumping in, swimming back up, only to jump in again. Pack a picnic because you'll probably stay a while, especially if you want to explore the surrounding pine forest.
