Over the years the Cat Cay Yacht Club has managed to combine the best features of private island life with the infrastructure of a major resort. Many members own luxurious beachfront homes, play tennis or golf on well-maintained inland facilities, dock their yachts in the modern, protected marina and dine in the islandís first-rate restaurant. A recently-lengthened 1,950 foot runway on a man-made airstrip on the east side provides easy access to the island from Florida. Cat Cay is located 50 miles SE of Miami, only 30 minutes away by air. Once ashore the only allowed transportation on the island is by foot, bicycle or golf cart.
Cat Cay is more than just a Bahamas country club on a beautiful Bahamian island; itís also a close-knit community of like-minded families from all over the United States and abroad. At peak times of the year the island buzzes with lively parties, social gatherings and activities at private homes or yachts, or at the pool. At other times Cat Cay lapses into a blissful quiescence perfect for beachcombers or hammock-bound readers.
