Fodor's Expert Review Hawk's Nest Resort & Marina

Devil's Point, Cat Island, Bahamas

Catering to private pilots, yachties, and serious fishers, this small laid-back resort at Cat Island's southwestern tip has its own 3,100-foot runway and a 28-slip full-service marina with a dive shop for guests. The marina is the best in the area for deep-sea sportfishing, and visitors can see sharks, rays, and other marine life regularly swimming around the marina docks. The rooms are standard but clean and well-maintained seaside cabanas. A nice pool by the clubhouse, surrounded by umbrellas and lounges, makes up for the lack of good swimming near the club, though there's a nice swimming beach a few steps away. They also rent bicycles, paddleboards, and snorkeling equipment. Usually quiet, this resort is booked and bustling during major fishing tournaments that take place every two months or so. At those times, the partying fishing crowd have a dining room and bar at the marina, leaving the rest of the resort in relative peace.


  • Three meals served daily
  • Fully stocked honor bar
  • Great dive spots and shallow walls


  • Long drive from other places on the island
  • Good swimming beach a few yards from main clubhouse
  • Afternoon shark feeding can interrupt swimming at the dock
