Attractions on Cat Island

Home to the highest point in the Bahamas, Cat Island is a great destination for those who want to spend their vacation days outside exploring the natural surroundings. Underwater dive sites are especially popular, but those who want to remain on land can spend their days hiking through the 150 square miles of unspoiled topical landscape. 


Pigeon Cay Beach

You'll find a large number of beaches to choose from on the island. If you prefer having a lot of room around you, you are likely to be rewarded, since some of these beaches are fairly secluded and lightly used. Just click on each beach name for a detailed review of that individual beach.

Hawk's Nest Beach: On the southern tip of Cat Island is Hawk's Nest Beach, a beach most frequented by guests of the Hawk's Nest Resort & Marina.

Another location to consider is Cutlass Bay Beach. Miles of forest edge the beach at Cutlass Bay, which has tan-colored sand and calm turquoise waters.

Pigeon Cay Beach: Pigeon Cay Beach is known for having some of the cleanest, whitest sands on Cat Island, and they stretch on for almost three miles. Meanwhile, the waters that wash ashore are a bright turquoise.

The island is home to quite a few other beaches. Those interested can find out more by clicking here.
