East of the Exumas and South of Eleuthera, the Southern Bahamas feels unspoiled by the modern world. Cat Island is dotted with relics of old Pineapple plantations from early colonial times. Cat Island is also home to the highest point in the Bahamas complete with a stone abbey hermitage at the peak. South of Cat Island, San Salvador rises up out of the ocean and the location of Christopher Columbus’ landfall. San Salvador is surrounded by a steep drop off of the ocean floor perfect for fishing and diving. The Southern Bahamas is begging to be explored by the adventurous or those who want to just get away from the hustle and bustle.
