If you enjoyed the white sandy beaches of Florida, but thought that there were just too many people on them, taking a flight to Cat Island will solve your problem. And if your staying at the Greenwood Beach Resort you do not just have “a” but “the” perfect remote white sandy beach in front of your bungalow. But you will not feel lonely as there will be at least one dog belonging to the resort that will adopt you as his caretaker.
If you are looking for something more spectacular than reading in your hammock and long walks on the beach, Bob the diver will help you out. He is a legend on the island and sees himself as the only natural predator of the invasive lionfish. His constant spearing of lionfish while guiding your dives is something that you need to get used to, but it helps the environment and besides, they taste absolutely fantastic. Apart from speared lionfish you also get the chance to see barracudas, turtles, lobsters and with some luck a hammerhead shark in the reefs.
Leaving this tiny island is also a story of its own. The island’s only taxi will pick you up and bring you to the smallest airport you’ve ever seen. It basically consists of one room, big enough for maybe 30 people. This room is the check-in, the souvenir shop and the gate at the same time. They even reuse the boarding passes. There is only one plane a day and before you enter you will see a lot of bahamer leaving the plane with pizza boxes as there is no pizza oven on Cat island.
