Life is coming back to our beloved Shannas Cove Resort. We are thrilled to let you know that we are reopening July the 1st.

While you throw your bathing suits into the suitcase, we want to inform you about some minor changes regarding your vacation at Shannas Cove Resort. 

We comply with all the standards to keep everyone safe. But hence we are situated on such a remote place it is difficult for us to provide some individual goods. Therefore, we ask you to bring your own PPE/face masks as well as your own snorkeling gear if you want to explore the marine life. 


As soon as you arrive in Cat Island we take care of you and your well-deserved vacation. Don’t worry about anything else than complete relaxation and turquoise waters around your ankles.

If you desire more information due to the protective standards at our resort or the regulations for entering the Bahamas, feel free to contact us anytime.
