Cat Island is the 6th largest island of the Bahamas, spanning approximately 48 miles long and from 1 to 4 miles wide. It is located near the Tropic of Cancer between Eleuthera and Long Island. Boasting one of the best tropical climates in all of the Bahamas, the island’s temperature ranges from the high 60’s during the winter and the mid-80’s during the summer.
Cat Island is one of the least visited spots of the Bahamas; consequently, it gives you the notion of being an “undiscovered” territory. Mount Alvernia, rising approximately 206 feet, is the highest point on the islands of the Bahama. At the top of the limestone cliffs rests a small, medieval monastery built by Father Jerome, a hermit well-known for building cathedrals and convents throughout the islands.
