We returned for our anniversary to Fernandez Bay Village, the site of our honeymoon. This place is true paradise. We stayed in Shane Shack, as we did years ago, and enjoyed every minute of the front porch steps from the ocean. The food is great, the staff is great, the accommodations, though rustic, are great. We were taken on a snorkel trip that was phenomenal and kayaked up the creeks into the mangroves. Honestly, although I love a fast paced theme park vacation, Cat Island and Fernandez Bay Village is my happiest place on Earth. See you in another 15 years!

When we were planning our private aviation trip to the out islands of the Bahamas, Cat Island and Fernandez Bay came on our RADAR. Little did we know how wonderful the resort would be. Everything was ready for us when we landed at New Bight airport and put the plane to bed there. A very quick ride to the resort and Tammaron showed us around the place while Jason moved our stuff into our room. Everyone was wonderful and so nice. Darrell made our very early Sunday morning departure very easy and simple. The Beach in Fernandez Bay is so incredibly beautiful with crystal clear water and endless pure sand. There is an enormous amount of space on the beach and each room/cottage has there own umbrella and beach chairs. One is never crowded here. To keep the blood moving (and believe me its very easy to just sit and enjoy the view) there are kayaks, paddle boards and even a small boat to go see the Cays in the bay. Snorkeling is ease and convent throughout the bay. Additionally, with the clear water the views are spectacular. We had a wonderful room with all stone walls and more then enough AC. My Wife loved the outdoor shower more then I could ever believe. There likely are several other places to eat on the island, We didn't we loved the food. Breakfast and Lunch have all the standard and some very tasty fish sandwiches. Now for dinner we were unsure of the "Buffet" as we generally don't like buffets. But this was not a typical bad US buffet with too much bad food. No, this was fantastic and tasty gourmet food one only had to plate yourself. Each meal was different and delish. Before dinner each evening there was a meeting happy hour where guest and friends meet at the honor bar and chatted the sunset away. By the way the sunsets are spectacular. Overall we loved FBV and the folks there and there is no doubt we will be back.

Room tip: We loved the isolation and placement of our room the Royal Palms. It was perfect for the two of us.

We had an amazing week at Fernandez Bay. Highly recommend the resort. We stayed at Point House, a family of 4 and it was perfect. All the staff were so friendly,helpful and you felt like family. The beach outside the back door,idyllic, a great place to drink early morning coffee. The honesty bar, delicious food and fun conversations to end each lazy day. A daily trip to the grocery store, if needed, as we had our own kitchen and could prepare some meals/snacks if we wanted to. Kayaks,paddle boards and bikes all available for guests use. We hired a car for 1 day to explore Cat Island, be sure to take cash as there is only 1 atm. Big shout out to ‘da Pink Chicken’ a great stop off for a couple of cold beers. Bug spray is a must for sunset and the ‘no see ums’,unfortunately they did see us! If you’re looking for a totally relaxing,unspoiled spot in The Bahamas, then FBV is the place to go, we loved everything about it.

We hail from Panama City, Florida-da and want to express how WONDERFUL Fernandez Bay Village and Cat Islanders are! Beginning with Darrell, when he picked us up from the island’s airport in New Bight, to the Romance Package’s boat tour of the Bay with Harrison, the experience was amazing. Attemtion to detail was evident in the Champagne and cheese tray upon room entry and the provision of sunscreen and fins for beach enjoyment., Tour of the bay in Harridon’s Whaler and service of Curry Beef for dinner by Ajah were both delightful! Thanks to Jason and Tamarin and Reef for the family friendly environment.

Our Creator has surely blessed this place! Hosea 6:3 “Aknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

We will be back with our whole family next time! Can’t wait

The beautiful flour soft white sand beach stretches the length of the private bay where you can swim in the crystal clear waters. The food is first class and delicious. If you are looking for a private get away this small out Island is one of a kind.
The staff is excellent and accommodating.
