Mangrove Cay

Remote Mangrove Cay is sandwiched between two sea-green bights that separate it from Central and South Andros, creating an island of shorelines strewn with washed-up black coral and scented ambergris, gleaming deserted beaches, and dense pine forests. Moxey Town, known locally as Little Harbour, rests on the northeast corner in a coconut grove. Pink piles of conch shells and mounds of porous sponges dot the small harbor of this commercial fishing and sponging community. Anglers come on a mission, in search of giant bonefish on flats called "the promised land" and "land of the giants." A five-minute boat ride takes fly-fishers to Gibson Cay to wade hard sand flats sprinkled with starfish.
