Located on a white sand beach of Mangrove Cay, Andros, Swain’s Cay Lodge is a full-service bonefishing operation and beach resort ideally situated and built for anglers, non-anglers, families, and couples. Choose from ocean-view suites, garden-view twin rooms, or a three-bedroom apartment for groups and families. The Swain’s Cay Lodge Reefside Restaurant & Bar is located on the beach and serves up delicious three-course dinners of fresh lobster, fish, ribs, chicken, and conch. A home flat spans the water just beyond the Lodge, where anglers can venture out in the evenings on their own in searching of tailing bonefish. Perfectly situated amongst two productive bights, Swain's offers anglers full fishing days independent of the day's tides.

Lodging Details
Located on Mangrove Cay, Swain’s Cay Lodge offers guests a tranquil, Bahamian beachscape with quick access to both the South Bight and the fabled Middle Bight of Andros. Built on a private four-acre property, the lodge provides its guests with a laid-back and remote tropical atmosphere and near immediate access to productive fishing. 

Visitors to Swain’s can choose from a range of accommodations, including well-furnished beachfront and ocean-view suites or a private three-room duplex apartment. Each room features either queen or twin beds, ensuite baths, air-conditioning, and a furnished patio for winding down in the evening or gearing up each morning. Swain’s accommodations are single-story, detached dwellings from the main lodge and restaurant, ensuring anglers or guests have plenty of space and solitude upon returning to their room and each evening.

Swain’s Reefside Restaurant & Bar overlooks the lodge’s home flat, ideal for recounting the day’s fishing stories over a cold Kalik or cocktail. There is also ample seating along the white sand beach to enjoy coffee in the morning or unwind after a filling Bahamian dinner. For those who want to put their feet up and rest, guests can relax in one of the numerous hammocks strung beneath coconut palms, or enjoy the fire pit just removed from the shore. The private beachfront only seconds from Swain's Reefside Bar makes for an excellent post-dinner hangout for fishing buddies and guests to chat or recoup before another day of bonefishing. 

Food and Beverages
Meals are always freshly prepared using local vegetables, meats, and seafood. Andros Island is one of the main producers of vegetables in the Bahamas, and all seafood is caught daily. This is the place to try some of the finest conch salad in the Bahamas! Expect breakfasts cooked to order, a packed cooler lunch on the water, and three-course dinners featuring grouper, snapper, Mahi Mahi, wahoo, chicken, pork ribs, pasta dishes, and homemade desserts. Vegetarian meals are available upon request. A visit to Shine’s Conch Stand, only minutes from the Lodge, is a great side trip and a must-do not only for the delicious conch salad, but for the ambiance and overall experience. 

Typical Length of Stay
Trips of any length can be arranged. There are no specific transfer days so you can arrive and depart on any day of the week and stay for any number of days.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Swain’s Cay offers a quiet, clean beach with soft white sand, lounge chairs, and a bar that is open throughout the day. The waters are calm and shallow here; ideal for wading and swimming. Guests can use the four sea kayaks to access deeper water for swimming, bonefishing, and snorkeling. There is also a small island bird sanctuary a short paddle away. Surrounded by flats, this tiny island is also near a private sand spit and blue hole perfect for snorkeling. Use one of the lodge’s bikes to explore the rest of Mangrove Cay via the main road, which is very safe for running and biking. A quick taxi to Moxey Town offers a few shops and some nightlife.

Internet / Communications
The Lodge offers Wi-Fi in the office and Main Lodge. Cell phone service is available depending on individual plans.
