Description

L'île doit son nom soit au pirate Arthur Catt, soit à sa forme qui ressemble à un félin assis. Néanmoins, durant de nombreuses années, l'île fut appelée San Salvador, et ne fut renommée qu'en 1926.

L'île possède une seule et unique route, une plage de sable rose de 12 km de long et le point culminant des Bahamas: le Mont Alvernia (63 mètres).
