Just off the mainland of Abaco, the string of barrier offshore cays is just a few more of the Bahamas’ tiny treasures. Of these gems, Green Turtle Cay is another Abaco vacation destination that shouldn’t be missed.
Walk back into time and enjoy the contrasts of narrow streets and brightly painted Caribbean style cottages surrounded by white picket fences and vibrantly colored tropical flowers.
Like many other Bahamas islands, Green Turtle Cay is interspersed with several beautiful beaches and offers an enormous amount of island activities.
Green Turtle Cay has several excellent vacation rental accommodations; including beautiful beachfront cottages, charming oceanfront villas and harbor front homes.
Green Turtle Cay was the second largest city in the Bahamas in the 1800's. Today the year round population is less than one thousand people. The residents are mostly engaged in fishing, construction and tourism. This settlement began with the Loyalist in 1783, making it one of the oldest in the Bahamas. This is the home of world famous artist Alton Lowe. Strolling along the paved roads you will meet with the warm and engaging locals who will make you feel like this is your home away from home. Seeing the historic village of New Plymouth takes you back in time where you expect to see pirate ships coming in the harbour. Visiting the settlement's Albert Lowe Museum and the Sculpture garden are a bonus of this small island's history. Dine at one of the island's delicious eateries, order a tropical drink, relax and enjoy the sunset.
There are numerous activities to choose from, but being lazy with a good book on the beach is one of the best choices, if not there is fun in the sun to explore by foot, bicycle, golf cart, or boat. The village of New Plymouth offers golf cart rentals, boat rentals, several restaurants, three grocery stores, two hardware stores, boutiques, gift shops, an art gallery and all manner of crafts. Also, in the White Sound area, there are two restaurants and Brendal's Dive Shop. On the southern tip of Green Turtle Cay there is a large sand bar, where shell collecting is a sport. Spend a day snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the Sea of Abaco or explore the many Atlantic Ocean reefs, just a short distance offshore. Enjoy the pleasures of a fishing charter for ocean sports fishing, or contact one of the many local fishing guides and experience the excitement of bone fishing. Green Turtle Cay also offers shipyards with dry boat storage facilities.
