Gorgeous weather, amazing beaches, a long list of outdoor activities and plenty of interesting attractions: That is what you will find when you choose Cat Island for your next holiday. A holiday rental home on Cat Island will put you close enough to the sea that you will be able to hear it as you drift off to sleep. You can walk to the beach and then shake the sand off of your feet before stepping inside your well-appointed home.
The beach is probably the most popular spot on Cat Island. Soft, rose coloured sand lines the shore where clear, warm water provides the opportunity for swimming, sailing fishing and more. SCUBA divers love this area thanks to the many coral canyons, ship wrecks and other dive spots. Organised diving expeditions can take you to some of the best spots. The truly daring can participate in a shark dive where you will come up close and personal with these much-feared predators. Sea kayaking is another great way to spend time on the water. If you’re lucky, you may have the chance to see some dolphins frolicking near your kayak. Hiking, cycling and wildlife spotting are other popular activities.
Should you tire of spending every moment at the beach, you will find that there are plenty of other options. Explore the Arawak Caves, visit ancient religious ruins or camp sites of people who lived here thousands of years ago. There are also ruins from the 18th century that provide a glimpse into life on Cat Island during that time period. Guided birding, wildlife and history tours are available. This area is rich in wildlife and bird watchers are often able to cross a few birds off of their lists.
One of reasons that Cat Island is such a great choice for a holiday is the fabulous weather. No matter when you visit you can expect warm, pleasant temperatures that are perfect for enjoying time at the beach. The year round average low temperatures are between 18° and 24° C. The year round average high temperatures are between 25° and 32° C. There is some rain each month. The most occurs from May through October with between 11 and 17 days per month.
