    "I have been visiting Green Turtle for 25+ years and this is the best house on the island. Beautiful house overlooking the ocean. Perfect location, halfway between New Plymouth and the Green Turtle Club. The house has everything you need from cooking supplies to linens and towels. Has a pool built into the deck sitting over the beach. Highly recommend!"

  • Fantastic location

    "What a great location with what we thought was the best beach on the island! Which is only steps out your front door. We had the pool to ourselves each day which was great! There was 5 of us and condo had tons of room. Everything we needed was in there. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this is the place to choose."

  • Beautiful and very comfortable!

    "We had a wonderful vacation in Exuma and we felt very comfortable in this condo. The views here are absolutely breathtaking! The pictures on this site do not do justice to this beautiful location. The infinity pool overlooks a sugar white beach and a true Bahamas colors sea. This condo is very spacious, comfortable and clean; we found everything that we needed: extra sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, kitchen has lots of cooking utensils, pans, etc. We were 4 adults and 4 children ages 2-9 and we appreciated having a washer and dryer. Beds were comfortable and all the furniture felt comfortable as well. Two upstairs bedrooms share a large terrace overlooking the pool, beach and beautiful sea beyond. We could not help but notice that the landscaping is well designed and well maintained. The condo is well built and it features a folding glass wall on the ground floor that can be opened entirely to (again!) the beautiful views! and a spacious patio a few steps from the hot tub and pool. There are stores within 5 minutes by car, a butcher shop and fish market, a supermarket in Georgetown, and lots of places to eat out. All the locals we met were very friendly and helpful! For 10 wonderful days we explored Great and Little Exumas by car and lots of cays and Stocking Island by boat! We found very few beaches where we were not alone. What a heavenly piece of Earth! Thank you!"

  • An experience that sparked a thousand memories from a childhood holiday on an Australian island

    "It was every thing I had hoped for ....what a cute cottage,with jimmy buffet music continuously playing in the back ground in the perfect setting... water and lush native fauna backdrop .Very basic living no windows just shutters and fly screens ....an out door shower is an experience every one should have. The cottages exterior paint color combination blue ,yellow and emerald green was memorizing it just made you feel alive You will need to rent a golf cart but that's fun in itself as it will take 10 minutes to get to Nippers bar With the tropics comes bugs so make sure to pick up repellant and the mosquito coils You have the choice of the inside calm water or the open ocean only 150 yards away ."

Cat Island Travel Tips

Getting to Cat Island Vacation Rentals

Cat Island is the sixth largest island in the Bahamas. It is located just southeast of Eleuthera Island and approximately 130 miles from Nassau. To get to Cat Island, you will need to travel via Nassau. There are daily connections from Miami, Atlanta and most major hubs in North America. To get from Nassau to Cat Island, you can get one of the domestic flights that operate five times a week. Depending on the day of your arrival, you may need to stay overnight in Nassau either on your outbound or inbound journey. Because of its distance from the other islands in the Bahamas, there are no scheduled ferry or boat services to Cat Island. There are many air charter companies in the Bahamas and they will provide you with flights whenever you require them, depending on favorable weather conditions.

Cat Island Travel Seasons

Located just off the Tropic of Capricorn, Cat Island enjoys a warm tropical climate. There is little difference in the temperature ranges between summer and winter. Winter though tends to be a little less rainy and humid. The months of November through May are therefore a popular time of year to visit. The days and nights are still blissfully warm without being stiflingly hot and humid. Unfortunately, Cat Island is on the far Atlantic side of the Caribbean and therefore exposed to tropical storms that occur in the late summer months. Hurricanes can occur any time between June and October so if you plan to travel during this time of year, you must be aware of weather warnings and travel advisories.

Things to Do near Cat Island Resorts

One of Cat Island’s greatest attractions is its beautiful beaches. The soft pink sands stretch for miles along the coastline. There are small secluded coves that provide private picnic and snorkeling spots dotted all along the coast. Take a leisurely stroll along the beachfront or spend the day working on your tan. Even in season, the beaches are rarely overcrowded so you can enjoy the tropical without too much disruption. Some beaches are used and maintained by private resorts. A few of the more popular public beaches are New Bight Beach, Fountain Bay Beach and Fernandez Bay Village Beach.

Scuba divers can sign up for dives at one of the many professional dive centers on Cat Island. When the weather is good, there are daily charters that head out to the reefs. If you prefer to snorkel, you can join up with one of the cruise excursions that head out to the reefs to see the marine life.

Cat Island is famous as being the childhood home of Sir Sidney Portier. His old home is located in South Bight and can be visited. The Mt. Alvernia Hermitage is a monastery located on the island’s highest point. It was built in the early 1900s and has a series of hand-carved stone steps leading up to it.
