Pink sand beaches dissolve into massive coral reefs as evergreens on coastal ridges shadow low-lying wetlands. Share the wonder, simplicity and freedom of Bahamian natural beauty with fellow Legacy Club members, loyal Conservancy supporters and the conservation-minded locals. Your visit includes a stay in Eleuthera, an island of casual sophistication, where residents prosper from the bounty of the deep blue sea and the rolling acres of pineapple plantations. You will also journey to Andros—home to one of the largest protected areas in the Caribbean—and discover why some call it the Bahamian outback.
- Explore blue holes, wondrous caves that appear on land and under water and host stalagmites and stalactites and the freshwater supply that is essential for all life on The Bahamas.
- Visit the Glass Window Bridge, for the supernatural contrast it offers between the dark blue of the Atlantic and the calm turquoise of the Caribbean.
- Enjoy an evening with Antonius Roberts, one of The Bahamas’ most outstanding artists and its preeminent sculptor, at his gallery/studio as you learn about his use of green technology and sustainable media.
- Take three separate “flightseeing” trips that provide you with an aerial perspective on the unique natural beauty of The Bahamas.
Andros—the largest of the Bahamian islands—is endowed with a wealth of biodiversity, an interwoven mix of creeks, mangrove flats, tidal creeks, pine forests and the second largest coral barrier reef in the Western hemisphere. Local organizations, the Andros Conservancy and Trust and the Bahamas National Trust are working with the Conservancy to develop management plans for an island-wide network of parks. The Conservancy selected Andros as a pilot project to demonstrate integrated land- and sea-use planning, a process that ensures that the knowledge and economic needs of local people play a key role in long-term conservation strategies.
