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 will find a good group of beaches to consider visiting on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on the name of the beach for more information concerning that particular stretch of sand.

A local beach that offers snorkeling is Gillam Bay Beach. Smooth sand and sparkling water is what to expect at Gillam Bay Beach. This little slice of paradise is the place to go if all you are looking to do is relax.

Another top pick for snorkelers 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 found just east of Loyalist Road, encompassing the long stretch between Green Turtle Estates and the Green Turtle Club and Marina.

Fortunately, the area is home to quite a few other beaches to choose from on the island. To learn about more beaches available, read this page.
