The district of South Andros occupies the southernmost third of Andros Island. Its economy is centred on the production of certain seasonal delicacies and on the commercial distribution of fresh conch, land crab, and spiny lobster, which are sold in Nassau.

Tourism is also an important industry in the district. Guests to South Andros are accommodated by a small upscale ecotourism lodge and a 36-room traditional hotel. Popular among sports fishermen are “bonefish lodges”, small hotels that offer all-inclusive packages for tourists who intend to fish at the bonefish flats on the island’s southeastern border.

Most of South Andros’ population live along Queen’s Highway and the unpaved sand roads branching from it. Residences are small, single-family homes made of cement block and/or local limestone. These houses are clustered into small groups on single land tracts.
