Eight miles of secluded pink and white sand beaches is what you get on Cat Island.  New Bight Beach is best liked among locals, while Fountain Bay Beach is great for snorkeling.  If you're after just a little sunning and swimming, any of the other beaches that surround the small isle will do just fine.
