                              Bennett's Harbor is located on the western shore of Cat Island. It is about 15 minutes to Arthurs town airport in the North, and about 35 minutes to New Bight airport in the south. Taxis are available as well as rental cars, and can be arranged. Fishing trips can be arranged as well, once you arrive. There are some very good Bahamian restaurants located 1/2 mile and 3 miles away. If you get lucky the Lassiedoe Boys will be home for some Rake n' Scrape dancing. You can also have dinner at 'Da Smoke Pot', where Renee is a great cook, and request some Rake n Scrape music from 'Julian and Da Smoke Pot Boys'! There are many wonderful beaches close by if you need to explore. The best one by far is the one that you're on though. It really doesn't get much better ! You can watch for the fishermen to return, run to the dock and buy the catch of the day. There are also a couple of pretty well stocked stores nearby.

                              ***You can now also get to Cat Island via Sky Bahamas from Nassau***
