"Two weeks ago I had some business in Kemps Bay, on Andros."
Esmeralda to Jack Sparrow[src]

Andros was an island in the Bahamas. Though claimed by Great Britain, the island was mainly inhabited by smugglers and pirates.


"I headed northwest from Andros, to follow the channel, then left it and swung east past Grand Bahama, past Little Abaco, then east past the northern tip of Great Abaco."
Esmeralda to Jack Sparrow[src]

Spain laid claim to the Bahamas including Andros Island after Columbus’ discovery of the islands—his first landfall in the Western Hemisphere was on the Bahamian island of San Salvador. The Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci, for whom the Americas were named, on a Spanish charter spent four months exploring the Bahamas in 1499–1500, and mapped a portion of the eastern shore of Andros Island. Juan Ponce de León sailed by Andros on his journey from Cuba to Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth in 1513.

During the late 1600s and early 1700s various pirates and buccaneers frequented Andros Island. In 1713 the Bahama Islands were declared a Pirate's Republic. Pirates raiding the Spanish treasure galleons out of Cuba maintained a settlement on South Andros.
