Blue Holes National Park

Overview

Andros has the highest concentration of Blue Hole in the world. Exposed to the elements over thousands of years, the island’s limestone bedrock eroded creating this vast expanse of underwater cave systems. These caves have been found to house many unusual and unique cave fish and invertebrates, some not found anywhere else in the world. This park protects a large quantity of blue holes, surrounding rich coppice and pristine pineland forests and part of Andros’ extensive fresh-water lens. The popular Capt. Bill’s Blue Hole is located in the southern portion of the Park.

Blue Holes National Park is a habitat of Bahamian endemic birds including the Bahama Oriole and Great Lizard Cuckoo. Caribbean birds like the Western Spindalis, Red-Legged Thrush, Black-faced Grassquit and Cuban Emerald are commonly seen in the rocky pinelands of the Park.
