More Daily Flights to This Island in The Bahamas

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 3, 2024

It’s perhaps most famous as the childhood home of Sir Sidney Poitier. But in recent years, Cat Island in The Bahamas has been carving out a new identity as an under-the-radar beach destination. 

And if you’ve been to the Fernandez Bay Village resort or Greenwood Beach or Old Bight Beach, you get it. 

The beaches are spectacular here, and they’re equally uncrowded.

Now, it’s even easier to visit Cat Island, thanks to an expansion of service on Western Air out of Nassau. 

The fast-expanding carrier is now offering daily flights between Nassau and Cat Island, the only airline to do so. 

It’s an easy way to visit one of the region’s great unheralded destinations. 

For more, visit Western Air.
