Location

lo1

No location conjures up the image of the quintessential Caribbean more readily than that of the Bahamas, and Tiamo is situated right at the very heart of these much loved islands. Set in a sheltered cove, Tiamo guests find themselves surrounded by verdant palm forests fringed with sumptuous white-sand beaches, kissed by the bluest, clearest waters imaginable. The island itself boasts a pristine natural landscape. Much of the interior is covered in unspoiled tropical vegetation and is a habitat for some amazing wildlife, while the east coast is dotted with only a handful of small settlements, friendly and full of local character. With only around 2000 residents, South Andros remains largely unchanged from generations past; it’s a place that oozes charm and intrigue, is rich with history and authentic native culture, and evokes in visitors a touch of nostalgia for a bygone era of travel and exploration. It’s the Caribbean at its idyllic, romantic best.
