A Tiny Beach Hideaway on Cat Island

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 2, 2017

The moment owner Richard greets you, you know you’ve found someplace unique.

And that’s precisely what the Tail Winds resort is.

Set on the far northwestern edge of Cat Island in the Bahamas, this is the classic beach hideaway, perched right on the sand on one of the island’s best beaches.

A mix of four “villa” units and two rooms, the hotel is extremely well built, with modern design, amenities and a small spa pool.

But this place is all about putting your toes in the sand, grabbing a Kalik and spending your day at the tiki hut.

We recommend bringing a group and doing a full property takeover, something that has found favor among a number of celebrities known to frequent sleepy Cat Island.

But it’s also a great option for a classic beach getaway.

For more information, visit the Tail Winds Resort.
