Overview & Pricing

A perfect opportunity to charge your batteries, soak up the sun and relax on two of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. This trip is the perfect beach lover’s combo. First we spend two days on an idyllic beach at Cape Santa Maria on Long Island which has been voted one of the world’s top 10 most beautiful beaches. Complimentary kayaks are available at the resort. You may also rent hobie cats, paddle boats, snorkeling equipment, book a fishing tour or a relaxing massage. We hop over to Fernandez Bay on Cat Island, another exceptional beach where complimentary kayaks, snorkeling equipment and bikes are available for your enjoyment. You may also rent a boat or explore Father Jerome’s Hermitage on Cat Island. The Hermitage is a miniature monastery built atop Mount Alvernia, the highest point in the Bahamas reaching a total of 206 feet. For those wanting to expand their Out Island experience, an optional day trip to Staniel Cay to see the swimming pigs and snorkel in James Bond’s Thunderball Grotto can also be arranged. Diving options are easily accessible at both destinations.
