Fodor's Expert Review Shannas Cove Resort

Bahamas

This quiet and secluded owner-run beach resort is perched high on the hill on the northern tip of Cat Island, granting sweeping views of the beautiful beach at Shannas Cove and the north of the island. There are five brightly decorated cottages, each with private balconies with ocean views and designed with different imported Italian tiles. The excellent restaurant serves three meals a day, with a delicious and creative European-style cuisine. Shannas is a fully equipped scuba center with a 22-foot catamaran dive boat to take you to north Cat Island's smorgasbord of superb dives. They also offer beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, kayaks, and snorkeling gear. Enjoy nature trails leading to fabulous deserted beaches. You'll be delighted by friendly conversation with the staff about life on Cat Island.
