The big selling point for tourists heading to Green Turtle Cay is that there isn't much going on there.  Surprisingly, there is a museum that focuses on local contributions to the art world, the rest of your time spent exploring the island will lead you to beaches and unique land formations  – some of which are located underneath the surface of the sea. 


There are a small variety of beaches to enjoy on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for people who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on the name of each beach for more information concerning that particular stretch of sand.

A beach scene where snorkeling is a popular is Gillam Bay Beach. There is not much to Gillam Bay Beach. With development limited to just the occasional villa, you rarely ever need to worry about loud music or crowds.

Another good choice for those who enjoy snorkeling is Coco Bay Beach. Lined with the occasional villa, walkers who explore this beach will come across very little on their journey, save for some boat docks, sunbathers, and the waves gently rolling ashore.

Ocean Beach: With a pleasant mix of peace and adventure, Ocean Beach offers some variety for those looking to spend a day at the beach.
