Fodor's Expert Review Love at First Sight
On the main highway at the mouth of Stafford Creek, Central Andros, Andros Island, Bahamas
At the mouth of Stafford Creek, self-sufficient anglers and do-it-yourself vacationers can sit on the sundeck or at the bar, sip a cold local beer or a cocktail, and contemplate the superb fishing and diving in Central Andros. Bright pink motel-style rooms are $130/night for doubles or $80 for singles. Clean and comfortable, they offer double beds, private baths, air-conditioning, small fridges, and coffeemakers. Turning Tides Restaurant overlooks Stafford Creek and serves Bahamian seafood, steaks, chicken, and pork. Sit at one of the outside tables, feed the resident fish, and you're likely to see tarpon and even sharks swimming by. Bonefish, dive, and nature excursions can be arranged. Fly either into Andros Town airport (26 miles) or San Andros (20 miles). Sheila, the owner, is charming and obliging.
