Cat Island Attractions

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

There are a large number of beaches to visit on the island. If you are hoping to enjoy some peace and quiet, you're in luck, since some of these beaches are relatively secluded and free from development. Click on the name of each beach for a detailed guide to that particular location.

Hawk's Nest Beach: Heading north east from Hawk's Nest Creek Airport will lead you along the coast to Hawk's Nest Beach.

Another location to consider is Cutlass Bay Beach. Cutlass Bay is located on the south coast of Cat Island, a quiet little beach perfect for those days when you just want to get away from it all.

Pigeon Cay Beach: Pigeon Cay Beach is located about a half a mile off Queen's Highway on the east coast.

Needless to say, you can find plenty of other beaches to choose from on the island. To navigate to our complete guide to beaches, click here.
