In New Plymouth
On Green Turtle Cay
Abaco, Bahamas


Welcome to Surcouf on Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, BahamaThree miles off the east coast of Great Abaco, Green Turtle Cay is the jewel of the archipelago, a little island with an uneven coastline, deep bays, sounds, and good beaches, one of the best stretching for 3,600 ft. Here you’ll find secluded inlets. The island is 3 1/2 miles long and 1/2 mile across, lying some 170 miles due east of Palm Beach, Florida.


New Plymouth, at the southern tip of the cay, is an 18th-century settlement that has the flavor of an old New England sailing port.  You'll find beautiful, one of a kind, handmade artwork and sculpture offered by local artists at the quaint Native Creations shop.  The scent of home baked coconut and pineapple pies is your invitation to visit family owned Robertha's Faith Grocery Store.

Water depths seldom exceed 15 ft. to 20 ft. inside the string of cays that trace the outer edge of the Bahama Bank. Coral gardens teem with colorful sea life, making for fabulous snorkeling. Shelling on
the lovely beaches and offshore sandbars is among the finest in The Bahamas. If you have a boat,
you can explore such deserted islands as Fiddle Cay to the north and No Name Cay  to the south of
Green Turtle Cay.

New Plymouth After Dark--Ask the locals if the Gully Roosters, are playing
their island-inspired music. They're the best in the Abacos and often appear at
various spots on island. Also make sure to visit Miss Emily's Blue Bee Bar
for a sample of their famous Goombay Smash. You might catch a live band
and you'll certainly enjoy a wonderful setting for a drink.
The Green Turtle Club, Pineapples Bar and Grill at the Other Shore Club, and The Bluff House are a few options.
