Located in Abaco, part of the Bahamian Out Islands, Green Turtle Cay is a tropical escape less than an hour’s flight from Florida. A friendly, laid back island, Green Turtle Cay is surrounded by miles of deserted beaches and crystal clear waters. To the east is the Sea of Abaco, with its calm, shallow waters, and incredible sunsets. To the east is the Atlantic Ocean with the world’s second largest barrier reef teeming with tropical fish, less than 100 yards from shore. Here you can fish, dive, take a rental boat to a nearby deserted island, or simply relax.

Green Turtle Cay is the place to come if you are looking for a true island experience, a real getaway from the hustle and bustle. Green Turtle is a part of the Abaco chain, and is considered one of the most historical of this family of islands. As soon as you step off the ferry, you’ll get a feel for the laid back atmosphere and have the feeling of traveling back to a simpler time.

The island, about three miles long and one mile across, offers beautiful settings of lush landscapes, white beaches, and unbelievable hues of the sea. Originally settled in 1783 by the Loyalists from the Carolinas during the Revolutionary War, New Plymouth has a sense of history and tradition. The village of New Plymouth is very picturesque, the architecture is reminiscent of a New England township, but the bright colors make it truly Bahamian. A small museum offers an historical perspective; an art gallery featuring local artists and a bevy of historic homes make for an interesting stroll into the island's past. The town is also very prosperous, offering a number of services and supplies as well as grocery stores and stores for unique souvenirs.

The water is calm and inviting nearly year-round. Most of the coastline is comprised of soft, white, sandy beaches and the clearest waters of aquamarine. You can go to any beach on any given day and be the only ones there. The waters are perfect for sailing. The fishing is also fabulous year-round, offering catches of grouper, mahi mahi, tuna, and if you are lucky, you might spot a marlin. There are native fishing guides available for deep-sea and bonefishing tours, and there is a regatta held every year on the 4th of July.

This is a place that embodies native Bahamian life. If you are looking for a place to relax, soak up the sun, and play on the water all day long...look no further. Your island paradise getaway awaits you!
