Surrounded by tropical beauty, Buttonwood Cay is the first sizeable cay that one encounters upon entering the South Bight, and hence, it is also known as Cay One. This tranquil 12.4 acre private island gem is situated in a secluded area of Andros, yet in close proximity to all the comforts needed for island living or development. The friendly settlements of Mangrove Cay, Lisbon Creek and Driggs Hill; two airports; the popular beachfront resorts of Tiamo Resort and Emerald Palms Resort; the fishing resort Mangrove Cay Club; and a medical clinic are just minutes away.

Native Buttonwood trees, glistening white sandy beaches overlooking crystalline azure waters, crisp year-round ocean breezes, and well protected anchorage in a channel just off the cay welcomes you to this serene paradise. The island is ideally located a mile beyond the world famous Andros Barrier Reef and the popular fishing waters of the Tongue of the Ocean.

Buttonwood Cay’s favorable shape provides nearly the maximum beach frontage per acre of land. The island extends from 50 to 400 feet wide and is suitable for development along its entire one mile length. A desirable water depth of 6 feet within 250 feet of the beach makes the entry area a suitable location for a boat dock.
No zoning restrictions allow for endless development possibilities including a fishing camp or waterfront resort project.

GETTING THERE: Buttonwood Cay is easily accessed from Fort Lauderdale or Nassau via two nearby airports, Congo Town Airport and Sound Andros Airport. Choose from Lynx Air or Trans Caribbean Air in Fort Lauderdale and enjoy a 90 minute journey across the Gulf Stream and over the brilliant blue waters of the Bahamas. Safari Seaplanes, Western Air or Golden Wings in Nassau offer 20-minute daily flights to the island’s two airports. From the island’s local airports, land and sea taxis are available to Buttonwood Cay.

ANDROS: Andros Island is the largest island of the Bahamas at roughly 2300 square miles offering miles of deserted beaches, pine forests, and inland waterways edged by mangrove marshlands. The island is one of the largest remaining unexplored land masses in the Caribbean. Said to be the Bonefish Capital of the world, its striking jewel-toned waters join the shallow and pristine fishing flats of the Great Bahama Bank to the deep sea-fishing waters of the Tongue of the Ocean.

The mainland of Andros is an amazing collection of islands joined by thousands of miles of freshwater inlet creeks and waterways. It holds the largest collection of fresh water in the Bahamas, making a fresh water well for Buttonwood Cay a likely possibility.

Breathtaking natural beauty and wondrous eco-systems attract thousands of visitors each year to enjoy the remarkable sites including a massive barrier reef (the second largest in the world), underwater caves, blue holes, dense rainforest, and an abundance of native orchids and birds. Avid anglers, sailors, and divers from all over the world come to explore the diverse Androsian waters.

The diving and snorkeling haven of Hatchet Creek and a portion of the Buttonwood Cay area was featured on Fine Living TV cable television in the “Yak to the Crack” scenes of the “Your Private Island” series episode which aired on 12-10-05 (Fineliving.com episode FLYPI – 412).

Many people choose the Bahamas as their island home because of the government’s favorable views on foreign ownership and business development. Included in these ranks are many top box office actors, business tycoons, and pop stars.

Buttonwood Cay’s title is impeccable and the cay is being sold freehold forever and offers an enormous potential for the future.
