Morgan's Bluff was named after Captain Henry Morgan. Some of his gold may still be hidden in the surrounding caves. The bluff is 61 feet above sea level and is the highest point on the island. Morgan's Bluff is also a good place to view the water barge heading to Nassau.
Captain Morgan is a brand of rum, named after the 17th-century Caribbean privateer from Wales, Henry Morgan. Even though the label of the bottle portrays Morgan as a "pirate", Henry Morgan himself was offended in his lifetime when people referred to him as a pirate, as he considered himself to be a privateer (one whose nation paid and licensed them to attack and plunder an enemy's shipping).

One of the nicer establishments in Fresh Creek on Andros Island. This is a Hotel, Yacht Club, Bar and Restaurant. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I went for breakfast and had an awesome meal of eggs, grits, spicy corned beef hash and tea.
Service was interesting. You see Andros Island is pretty slow, quiet, and with little people to serve. Many stores will close at random times because there is no one around to be open for or they are open and the neighborhood folks are hanging out. It is odd when someone see's a customer here.
At 1045 my friend and I were starving and no place was open but the lighthouse and the cooks were gone so the hostess cooked only what she knew how to cook for us. She was sweet and I did not care a bit, I admire that kind of thing. It might upset other travellers though not me, the meal was great and I had nothing to do but relax.
There is a great view of the docks and the place is nice and comfortable. Breakfast was around $25 for 2 folks including juice and coffee.
Favorite Dish: The spicy corned beef hash made with some stewed tomatoes was the best.

Andros is a very quiet place but Nicholls town seems to be the place that is most plentiful. It is the town on the northern tip of the island and has a nice cresent beach, a few pubs, small lodges, stands to eat at, and the most people. Also close by is Morgan's Bluff where you can explore caverns for Morgan's lost treasures... The pub below was my favorite because it's one of the oldest structures left from the pirate era here on the island, all the wood and interior is still the same from when pirates roamed the area.

When the wind is not blowing by the beaches the no-see-ums are relentless if you do not have any protection. In evening I suggest long pants made of thin cotton and closed shoes so you can still relax in the weather. They tend to get the legs and feet since they stay low to the ground so your upper body is less at risk. They are not poisonous or anything just big and by the dozens on Andros. Normally a no-see-um gets it's name because you can't see them and in places like Florida you feel a slight prick of the skin but it is nothing to fret about and you have no welts afterword. NOT HERE... I was in a pub on the water on a still evening just as the sun went down(that is when they strike) and there was some open fruit behind the bar (appealing for them), I did not remember to put on bug spray earlier and I got to sit and see my legs being attacked by about 50 big seeable no-see-ums crazily crawling and biting my legs(I was dinner). Luckily someone had some spray and later the bugs moved on. Even when you have spray it only helps, some people who are vulnerable to them put a thin layer of petroleum jelly on their lower legs and this helps, also skin so soft made by the Avon company on a regular basis helps. Eat spicy food and don't wear perfume. Lesson learned... My legs itched horribly for 2 weeks, my socks made me itch when I walked, I wear combat boots for work and so I was stuck unable to itch(although I shouldn't). I could not sleep my legs itched so much and my welts were huge. I felt like I had severe poison ivy on my legs... I had bites in between my toes(devoured). It took a month for my legs to look right again.See picture below, it all seems funny to me now but that really sucked at the time.
