Cat Island es una de las islas centrales del archipiélago de las Bahamas. Es uno de los baluartes de la zona oriental del archipiélago. Tiene 60 metros de precipicios (una altura poco común para las Bahamas), bosques densos y cuevas precolombinas de los indios arawak. En Mount Alvernia se encuentra la ermita construida por el Padre Jerónimo. La regata Cat Island se celebra durante las vacaciones de agosto.
