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. 

Beaches

You'll find a small variety of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for visitors who are so inclined. You can click on the beach names for more detail concerning that part of the coast.

If you are hoping to go snorkeling, a place where that's an option is Gillam Bay Beach. Green Turtle Cay is a small island, and getting around will be no problem. Gillam Bay Beach is actually the end of the road for the Southeast part of the island.

Another good option for those who enjoy snorkeling is Coco Bay Beach. Like most of the other beaches on Green Turtle Cay, Coco Bay Beach excels at being minimalist. Those looking for water-sports and partying should look elsewhere, as nothing but soft sand and clear water awaits you.

Ocean Beach: Ocean Beach is undeveloped, so while you should not expect anything in terms of amenities or services, you can be sure that the atmosphere will be peaceful and the sand soft. This makes Ocean Beach a great choice for sunbathers, especially since there are also plenty of areas shaded by pine trees when it is time to cool off.

The island offers even more beaches to choose from. For a more detailed look at this specific topic, see this article.
