Andros Island

This is a list of creeks of The Bahamas in alphabetical order for islands that have creeks. There is only one river in The Bahamas, the Goose River in Central Andros. There are also many tidal creeks, which resemble rivers.[1][2]

In March 2018, waves breaking over cliffs near the Glass Window Bridge in Eleuthera caused a flow of water across the island that washed out the Queens Highway, and was temporarily called a new river.[3]
