Located on Cat Island, Mt. Alvernia has the highest elevation in the Bahamas, at 206 feet above sea level. On the hill sits The Hermitage, a medieval monastery hand carved by Father Jerome out of rock, along with the steps leading up to it.
Guests stay at the Orange Creek Inn, a locally owned motel within sight of a gorgeous beach and productive bonefish flats! The flats and mangroves of Orange creek are a great place to fish for tailers in the morning and evening, as well as stalking bonefish during high sun.
