KAMALAME CAY RESORT - ANDROS, BAHAMAS

Of the numerous bonefish destinations found throughout the Bahamas, none offer the elegance, privacy, and high-end resort amenities of Kamalame Cay. This 97-acre private island resort is the perfect retreat for couples and families seeking a unique Caribbean experience catering to both anglers and non-anglers alike. There are seven different lodging options at Kamalame Cay, allowing you to custom-create the perfect accommodation package for you, your family, or your group of anglers. Kamalame also offers a full-service, amazing spa built high over the water – the nicest in all of the Bahamas. One great thing about the fishing at Kamalame is the close proximity to both the Joulters Cays to the north, and the town of Red Bays to the east, which allows easy access to Andros' West Side. For those who wish to chase bonefish on their own, the expansive home flats on the backside of Kamalame can be great.

Fishing Information

Kamalame Kay BonefishAndros Island, located approximately 150 miles east of the Florida Keys, is a premier bonefish destination. This Bahamian Island, which is over 100 miles long and in places up to 40 miles wide, consists of vast areas of flats, creeks, cays, cuts, mangroves, and fertile fishing grounds. Kamalame Cay, situated on the northeastern part of the island, allows access by skiff to numerous flats that are relatively close to the resort’s dock, or alternately by trailering the boat to the Joulters Cays or to the West Side of Andros. When fishing at Kamalame there are numerous options from which to choose. You can start your day from the resort’s dock and fish the oceanside flats and inland creeks along the eastern shore of Andros, all the way to Majestic Point. These flats hold large and aggressive ocean bones that feed around the sandy and coral shorelines adjacent to the deeper water. The inland waters and lagoons are accessed by the creeks, and smaller schooling fish can be targeted along the mangroves. These inland waters also provide protection on windy days. Another option is to drive north to the famous Joulters Cays - a must if the weather is favorable. These small islands just north of Andros are surrounded by endless white sand flats that seem to blend into the horizon. The Joulters might be one of the most populated areas for bonefish in the world, and tailing and large schooling fish can be found in abundance.

Trailering a boat to nearby Red Bays allows easy access to the Andros' West Side with minimal running time. This side of the island is acknowledged as one of the top “trophy bonefish” areas in the world. The west coast is also one of the better destinations in the Bahamas for tarpon fishing, which usually is best from April through August.

Lastly, for bonefish one may leisurely wade-fish the home flats on the backside of Kamalame Cay while non-fishing family or friends are enjoying the beach, pool, or spa. These flats are a short walk from your accommodations, and calculating the prime times relating to the tides will afford great fishing for relatively short periods of time - the perfect "escape" when vacationing with family and non-anglers!

Boats and Equipment

Anglers targeting the flats fish from Maverick skiffs with 75 hp Yamaha engines. The off-shore enthusiasts fish from a 24 foot Pathfinder V-hull center console and is rigged and outfitted with tackle.

Non-Angling Activities and Options

Kamalame Cay ResortScuba, snorkeling, blue hole exploring, guided tours of Andros, eco tours, hiking through the woods, Red Bays tour for local basket making and sponge harvesting, wind surfing, sea kayaking, tennis, romantic picnics on deserted islands, and candlelight dinners on the beach.
