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 consider visiting on the island. If you prefer having a lot of room around you, you may be pleasantly surprised, several of the beaches are fairly secluded and lightly used. You can click on the beach names for more information concerning that section of the coast.

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.

A second place 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.
