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

There are a handful of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for vacationers who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Click on the name of each beach to get additional information about that particular location.

A beach where snorkeling is popular 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. 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: 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.

These examples are only a few of what's available. If you're interested, you can get more information here.
