Boasting a subtropical climate, this is a great year round destination to visit whether you want to dive, snorkel, get away from the world or find out just what it’s like to walk along a seven mile stretch of pink sand beach.
In the 1600s the island was a safe haven for pirates, among them Arthur Catt from whom the island gets its name and main town on the island, Arthur's Town.
You’ll rarely meet another diver but you will encounter plenty of fascinating marine species along the 19 kilometres of wall diving sites along the southern coast of this 80 kilometre long island with plenty of beautiful, pristine powder white sandy beaches. Explore coral canyons and sandy valleys, caves and swim throughs full of fish.
Expect turtles, rays, several species of shark, lobster, morays, dolphin and plenty of reef fish. It’s possible to snorkel or learn to dive here and there are plenty of sites to keep experienced divers happy. Cat Island is home to oceanic white-tip sharks in season.
