About Cat Island
Called cat, this island actually looks more like a narrow boot, a bit like Italy, but much thinner and with a flat heel. As well as being known for its beaches, Cat Island boasts the Bahama's highest mountain, 206ft, Mount Alvernia - which is topped by one of the world's most scenic monasteries. The best places to stay on Cat Island are the small collection of beachfront hideaways - this is a great place to come to escape and relax.
Aside from taking a quick trip up the mountain (which is well worth the effort to see the beautiful, hand-made hermitage), Cat Island's highlights are:
- the 'Boiling Hole' a clear lake with odd tidal conditions which cause strange burps and bubbles, and lead to stories of this being the home of a sea monster! And which is also a great place for seeing baby sharks and stingrays;
- the underwater caves and channels starting at the Big Blue Hole.
Our pick of the best places to stay in Cat Island is a pretty beachfront affair that won't break the bank.
- The Greenwood Beach Resort is a lushly pretty beachfront hotel with 18 tropical style rooms and plenty of charm. Secluded, idyllic and great value, this resort also has a great little restaurant serving local specialities and a friendly beach bar.
