Thoughts on Green Turtle Cay?

Jump to last reply

Hello -

Our family of four - two teens - is considering a trip to Green Turtle Cay next summer. We have been to St John and would like to go somewhere different, but similar.

Love the idea of the golf carts and renting a house right on the beach - considering Bennett House. In St. John we have stayed in the Coral Bay area so I figure we will have similar access to restaurants in Green Turtle Cay since Coral Bay is pretty remote.

Looking forward to renting snorkel gear, going to different beaches and going on a day trip to some other islands. Has anyone been to Green Turtle who could provide some insight? There just isn't much info out there and this would be a big trip for us so I just want to make sure it is a good choice.

Thanks!!

    Having spent time on both, I suspect you will enjoy Green Turtle Cay. Although GTC is remote in terms of getting there, it is a teeny tiny little cay -- so once you're on the island, everything is a few minutes' boat ride or golf cart ride away. There are several restaurants and shops (modestly stocked) in New Plymouth, and plenty of others scattered about the cay. We kept finding ourselves back at the Green Turtle Club, as the bar was friendly and the food among the best in the Bahamas.

    The beaches are lovely! One of my favorite activities was to go to Gillam Bay and then walk all the way around the south side of the cay to get to the Sea of Abaco side -- lots of beach goodies like shells and sand dollars for the intrepid to find.

    For island hopping, there is of course the ferry. But that will only really take you to Treasure Cay (which, despite all of my time in the Abacos, I have never visited). But if you rent a boat, you can get to other deserted/uninhabited islands like Manjack Cay, Powell Cay and Allens-Pensacola. IF you don't take a boat yourself, there are excursions offered to Manjack.

    The only caution I offer is that if you go between December and mid-March, you might find it a bit chilly -- cool waters and regular cold fronts passing through.

    Feel free to ask me more specific questions. Or for more information, I would suggest visiting the Bahamas forum on Trip Advisor.
