One of the highlights of Cat Island is that it has the highest elevation of all of the 700 Bahamian islands. This high point is known as Mt. Alvernia and is a definitely see. The views are amazing and it is only 15 minutes from the house. On top of Mt. Alvernia is a landmark known as “The Hermitage” which is a small monastery built in the early 1900’s by and architect, Father Jerome who moved to the Bahamas from England. He lived in this monastery as a hermit until his death. After your hike up Mt. Alvernia, have lunch or dinner at the Blue Bird restaurant which features delicious Bahamian cuisine and is located across the road from the road to the Hermitage.
Other highlights to see are the “blue holes” located on the center of the island that communicate with the ocean and of course, the numerous beautiful white sand beaches.
