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.

Pigeon Cay Beach

Pigeon Cay Beach: Pigeon Cay Beach is as popular as they some on the sleepy Cat Island, and you can still manage to go an entire day on the beach without seeing another soul.

Another place worth considering is Bat Hole Beach. Bat Hole Beach is backed by miles of thick green forest, which leads right up to the white sands. Rolling ashore are deep blue waters with slightly choppy waters.

Orange Creek Beach: Soft pink sands typify Orange Creek Beach, which also experiences a relatively calm, deep blue surf.
