Walking Tour of Stanyard Creek, Andros, Bahamas

Stanyard Creek Andros Bahamas

It was at dinner one night at Kamalame Cay that we ran into a gentleman we had met at the luncheon our first day on the island.  He lived in the area, and asked us what we had done.  I mentioned that we had taken a walk “into town,” and he laughed a bit and said, “Town?”  I explained that if you have a grocery store, a school, and a church, you’re a town.   And I told him about our walking tour of Stanyard Creek, Andros, Bahamas.

After a few days on a private island, you get the itch to explore a bit more.  We had taken some excursions, but I like to get a sense of where people live, so one morning, I convinced the kids to join me as we took the ferry over to Andros from Kamalame Cay.

We immediately found the shoreline, via the Coconut Grove Resort and Fishing Lodge, and decided to walk the beach until we found town.  We walked a bit, and did not see anything on the radar.  It seemed like undisturbed beach ran on forever.

We changed up our plans and decided to walk back to the road and take that into town.  Some very nice people offered us a ride, but we decided to stretch our legs a bit.  And we stretched them, or maybe it just seemed like a long walk because it was very sunny and warm that morning.  Eventually, we made it to town and spotted J & J Foodland, where we popped in  for some cold drinks.

Refreshed, we strolled through town.  We stopped in at the Wesley Methodist Church, saw some very pretty pastel-colored homes, and walked the basketball court which is the home to the Staniard Creek Wildcats.

I noticed on many maps and on the court, it was spelled “Staniard” Creek, while on most signs it was spelled “Stanyard” Creek.  I wasn’t able to find any explanation for the difference, although I did see that it was the “Garden of Andros.”

We passed through another churchyard, and walked back out to the water.  Still not a soul on that gorgeous beach.

We saw a crab dining on a breakfast of houndfish.  Yum!

But we could not get enough of that beach.  It was perfect!

Time to go back to Kamalame Cay, but it was a nice morning for  a visit to town!
