The Hermitage

Mount Alvernia, also known locally as Como Hill, is the highest point in The Islands of The Bahamas at 206 feet (63 meters). It was named Mount Alvernia by Monsignor John Hawes, a Roman Catholic priest. It is said to be reminiscent of La Verna, the hill in Tuscany that was given to St. Francis of Assisi as a place where he could peacefully contemplate, and is reportedly where Assisi received the Wounds of the Cross.

Orange Creek Beach

Located on the northwestern side of Cat Island, near Arthurs Town, You might want even if you are not staying nearby. Orange Creek Beach stands out because it's the ideal location for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Many of the other beaches you'll come across in the Bahamas may be just as beautiful, but are usually more cramped because they're lined with some of the most famous hotels and restaurants.
