What should I pack when moving to Cat Island?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Cat Island to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Cat Island, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. This includes items such as shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and sundresses. You should also pack a few light sweaters or jackets for cooler evenings. Swimwear is a must, as you will likely spend a lot of time at the beach. Don't forget to pack beach towels, beach bags, and beach shoes like flip flops or water shoes. Sun protection is crucial in the Bahamas, so pack plenty of sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses. Pack comfortable walking shoes for exploring the island, and semi-formal attire for dining out or attending events. Remember to pack your toiletries, including travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, and any other personal care items you use daily. If you take prescription medication, be sure to bring enough to last your entire stay, as it may be difficult to refill prescriptions on the island. Pack a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated, and consider bringing a portable phone charger for long days out. Don't forget your passport, driver's license, and any other necessary identification. Lastly, pack a good book or two for relaxing on the beach, and a camera to capture the beautiful scenery," said another expat in Cat Island, Bahamas.
