Cat Island Overview

Cat island is an Out Island of the bahamas situated about 200 miles southeast of Nassau. The island is about 40 miles long and has about 1,400 inhabitants. Vilages are small and offer few services. The island is not geared towards the tourist but you can usually get excursions arranged at your accomodation

Accomodations on the island are small and typically are of the bungalow style with fewer than 10 units. If you stay at an accomodation you usually eat there too. There are restaurants along the island but finer dining can really only be found at the accomodations.

Getting to the island is actually quite easy with twice daily flights from Nassau on which the plane stops at first the New Bight airport then at the Port Arthur airport. There is also a direct flight service from Fort Lauderdale, Florida that you can take.

A trip to Cat Island is a trip away from it all.
