A nation of 700 low-lying islands, the Bahamas can boast some of the finest beaches on earth. For me, the exquisite and infinitely varied colors of the sea are a perennial pleasure. The diving and saltwater fly-fishing are world-class. New Providence Island and the capital city of Nassau are bustling and developed. Just 15 minutes away by air, Andros has a total land area larger than the rest of the Bahamian islands combined. The interior is almost impenetrable and is said to contain one of the largest tracts of unexplored land in North America. A local population of about 8,000 lives along the east coast, where a succession of small communities is linked by a single atrocious road. Although the weather is warm and pleasant for much of the year, it is important to remember that the Bahamas are generally cooler during the January and February winter high season than are the Leeward and Windward Caribbean islands 750 miles to the south.
