Discover Our Very Special Island
Green Turtle Cay is a vacation paradise for sailors, divers and fishermen. The island is intimate in size at 3.5 miles in length and 1.5 miles wide and it is located just three miles off the east coast of Great Abaco. Green Turtle is the gem among this stretch of islands with an uneven coastline, deep bays, and pristine, white-sand beaches. It is closest in proximity to the southeast coast of Florida, located 170 miles due east of Palm Beach.
Coral gardens teem with colorful sea life, making for wonderful snorkeling and diving expeditions. Shelling on the powder-soft beaches and offshore sandbars is among the finest in The Bahamas. You can even find starfish as you stroll along the shores. Boaters are encouraged to explore deserted islands like Fiddle Cay to the north and No Name Cay and Pelican Cay to the south of Green Turtle Cay.
Green Turtle Cay is a history lover's delight. Founded by the Loyalists in the 1700s, the historic village of New Plymouth was born of those individuals still loyal to the Crown of England. Easily accessible by rental golf carts, New Plymouth hosts the Albert Lowe Museum, the Loyalists Sculpture Garden, along with many little, quaint bars and restaurants. New Plymouth is unique in that it is a true working Bahamian village. While in the village, be sure to stop by some of the workshops of the local craftsmen, see their work and meet some of the friendliest people in the world.
