This is just wrong and there is no way to sugar coat it. There are many places in the back country and West of Key West
where you can anchor
and not see another boat for weeks.
Not saying there are not lots of deserted islands in the Bahamas
; especially in the Berry Islands, Ragged, and Jumentos. Both the Keys and the Bahamas
have pros and cons. But I am still of the opinion that if some one has questions about going to one or the other the Keys is the easier, cheaper, and safer choice.
