Next to Queen's Staircase there was a government furnished water spigot where people without clean running water could come to get some. T and D met a man named Wayne and his daughter Diana there filling up. D got to help.

After renting our car, we stopped briefly at Solomon's fancy organic grocery store for some lunch and snack items. The day was actually a holiday on the island, so the grocery stores were closing early. Our host had given us the heads up on ...
... by going through a mangrove field called Banshee Creek. At high tide you can’t walk through there because it’s flooded. When we got to the top other boats had left driftwood with their boat’s name on it. Some of the boards said where they were from. Some weird ones were “North Pole”, “Alaska”, ...
Took a day to visit the Exuma Keys on a powerboat adventure. Though we were unable to visit the swimming pigs (still on my bucket list) we did feed wild iguanas, swim in crystal blue water, feed wild stingrays and sharks, and snorkel over a reef in those shark infested waters.
We sat out on a private island for the rest of the day eating seafood freshly caught and prepared. The drinks kept being poured and the sun kept shining.
The tour was amazing and worth every penny. ...
Author:MayaWe are now at Wardrick Wells it is so beautiful here I can’t express how beautiful it is. The sand is like flour, the sea is as clear as a new window, the vast tropical forests are as green and lush as well… just really green and lush.

Historical Traveler Reviews Emerald Palms by the Sea Andros
We just returned from a week at the Emerald Palms with our two children (16 year old and a 22 month old). We were looking for a quite location, that would allow us to relax and enjoy some family time together. The Emerald Palms was the perfect location. The accomodations and facilities are very nice and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist. Donna, the manager, went out of her way to make our stay pleasant (Adam thanks you Donna !!!). CeCe as well was absolutely wonderful !!!!
Our usual vacation is a cruise or stay at a mega resort. However, my wife wanted to get away from that for her birthday this year, and she chose Andros Island after much web research. We chose the Emerald Palms on South Andros for our six day stay in February, 2005 because we had two small children in our party, it was on the beach, and the cottages looked great. We weren't disappointed one bit.
During our island-hopping honeymoon to the Bahamas (I am a pilot and we flew our own aircraft) my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Emerald Palms. Not knowing what to expect I only made arrangements for two-nights. We enjoyed it so much we wound up not continuing on to our next stop, and staying at the Emerald Palms for 3 additional nights!
We realized immediately that we had found an amazing destination. Jerry and I found the Emerald Palms Resort by chance on the internet. We were looking for a place to get married and relax for a few days.

this island has the most friendliest people we have ever met,nothing is too much trouble for them.the hotel wasnt full,you could walk for miles without seeing anyone.the bungalows were very nice and had a/c. we took 2 teenage daughters who enjoyed all the shells that washed up on to the beach every day.an island to go to if you want peace and quiet and lovely people and nice beaches.
You will not be having ----- on the beach anywhere in Nassau. However, at the Emerald Palms, 15 minutes away by regular plane trips from Nassau, you will have the entire beach to yourself. That, plus the best service my wife and I have recieved anywhere, should be enough to get you there. The only place as nice in the Bahamas is Compass Point, but the Emerald Palms has more seclusion, and better service.
In the time it takes for you to wait with a busload of over-loaded (in all possible ways) tourists and get to the Vegas-on-the-beach that is Paradise Island, you could be watching lizards scatter under the palm trees, sititng by pristine tiled coutyards looking out over miles of deserted (yes, actually deserted) golden beach, getting the very personal yet relaxed service that is enough to sell emerald palms on its own.
The accommodations here are first rate. We stayed in a villa. The craftsmanship of this freestanding bungalow was outstanding, the furnishings were top notch, the AC was cold and everything worked. Even the solar hot water was ample for a lengthy shower. The food was excellent. We were treated on a couple of occasions (by our request) with some local fare. The staff at the EP was pleasant and courteous. We would stay here again without hesitation.
We were the only ones there for an entire week several years ago. It is small in size but super in every aspect. Unless there are now facilities, take your own dive or snorkel equipment. Beach is excellent and very very very few people.
