Interesting History and Culture of New Bight Cat Island, Bahamas
This island is not just all sites and attractions – the local culture is equally fascinating.
Cat Island got its name from Arthur William Catt – a 17th-century British pirate who (according to Bahamian folklore) used to frequent the island to hide his loot.
What’s more, with the Bahamas being a significant part of the 18th-century international trade, Cat Island was used as a primary market.
If you don’t fancy sightseeing, you can always get to listen to Bahamian rake-and-scrape artists performing at local bars and restaurants. Cat Island is the birthplace of this traditional world-renowned music genre.
