Explore the miles of coastline and mangrove habitat filled with an abundance of wildlife, both above and below the water.

  • The Sugar Plum Cays are less than a mile in front of the house and a great place to kayak or canoe. A fly fishermen’s paradise!
  • Off the rock point is a good snorkeling spot with coral heads, snappers and loads of other fish.
  •  Half way down the cays is Curly Creek, which winds through to the other side, where the mangroves are teaming with snappers.
  •  The bay also lends itself wonderfully to windsurfing or kiteboarding.
  • At low tide, you can walk out to the sand bank and look for shells and sand dollars, during the day and sometimes by moonlight.
  • We have numerous birding opportunities at different times of the year, as well as a significant nesting population of the endangered Piping Plover. (Talk to Scot)
  • You can also just relax and soak up the quiet sounds of nature.
  • The night time star gazing is spectacular.

Look at the map of Bonefish Bay for a better idea of places to explore.

What to do on Andros

  • Get a guide and see other flats on Andros, there are many, on the West Side or down in the Bights
  • Deep sea fishing is good during the winter, and reef fishing is always good
  • Great world class snorkel and SCUBA is available at a dive lodge six miles away, run by my brother Jeff
  • The inland fresh water blue holes are natural swimming holes in the limestone surrounded by the forest.
  • Drive North to Morgan’s Bluff and visit the cave, or go to Red Bay, the only settlement on the West side, settled originally by Seminole Indians.

Experience living Sustainably
Bone Fish Bay is completely self-sustainable. We generate our own power and water. Nothing to do, the system runs itself.
The power system uses 6.08 KW of solar panels and a 1KW wind generator.  The system is configured into 48volts DC and then an inverter sends 120 volts AC to the house. This enables us to use standard house hold appliances.

You can experience what it is like to be self-reliant. Just keep in mind these two guidelines;

  • Turn off lights and fans when you leave a room.
  • Use the washing machine and dryer during the day after the sun has come up, 9:30AM- 4PM

The water is supplied by either the rain water catchment or well water. The water is treated and filtered before it enters the house. It is perfectly safe to drink straight from the taps. We also have a reverse osmosis (RO) filter at the kitchen sink where bottles can be filled for the best tasting water on the island.

The House
It’s a tropical beach house, so keep the sand on the beach! Leave shoes outside and rinse feet before entering the covered decks. There is a shoe box on the deck before you enter the screen door.
