I don't really want to share this because I would still like to still get a reservation here...but Cat Island, especially because of Shanna's Cove and the amazing owners Frank & Gabbie, just took the #1 spot as our favorite Caribbean vacation spot EVER! We have been to Caribbean islands at lease 20 times and this was our second visit...

We've just returned from our 4th trip to Shannas. White powder sand, gin clear water, and no people. If you add in great food, passionate owners and a staff that shares their energy you've got the perfect get-away. We can't wait to go back. Tracy & Ron Plymouth, Massachusetts

Food? Amazing. View from your private room's deck? Stunning and full of deep blue water. Best of all? Aside from the few people also staying at the resort, you will not see another person on the beach. Gabi and Frank are so wonderful and are really on top of it. You will not worry about a thing while staying at...

Our host, Frank, met us at the tiny island airport in Arthur Town, a short drive to Shanna’s Cove, located on one of the highest points on Cat Island. We stayed in a Dolphin Bungalow Beach View cheerily and colourfully decorated with the most beautiful view of the private beach below. We arrived mid afternoon and it was a short...

My husband and I stayed here in June 2016 for our honeymoon. It was our first time to the Bahamas and was absolutely WONDERFUL! We spent the first 4 days here and spent the last 3 days in Nassau at an all inclusive resort, but we both wished we would've stayed the full time at Shannas Cove. It was so...

We stayed for a week in July 22-29 and had a great time relaxing, touring the island and enjoying the beach and water - which was clear and warm mostly calm during our stay. Frank and Gabby are great host - make sure you engage them in conversation about the island and the business. OK so here are the highlights:...

My husband and I decided to fly ourselves to the Bahamas from the US and do a couple of Out Islands. We chose this and the Berry Islands. Shannas Cove by far had the best beach, best food, and most relaxed atmosphere. The private bungalows are straightforward--modern shower, immaculate everything, and nice sized refrigerators (bring drinking water or buy theirs...

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days in late June of this year. We chose Shanna's Cove because of the Trip Advisor reviews. We were looking for a place where we could get away from everything and decompress for a while. I was skeptical that any place could consistently receive 5 star reviews, but I was very pleasantly...
