Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas


Hammock overlooking the oceanIf you’re expecting a resort-like experience with loud discos, gambling, and an all-inclusive food and drinks package, you’re in the wrong place.

We do have more stars than you are ever likely to see, though! You’ll find live coral reefs that lie right at your front door and are easy to swim to. They will thrill you with brightly colored fish and fantastic coral formations. If you want to explore nearby uninhabited islands or make visits to the settlement of New Plymouth, boat rentals and golf carts are available on a weekly or daily basis. Cocobay Cottages is a beach vacation like you’ve never experienced!

Green Turtle Cay is very informal and most cottages have washer and dryers, so you don’t need to pack all that much Restaurants require shirts and shoes, but besides your bathing suit you’ll only need shorts, t-shirts, a windbreaker for boating or our occasional shower,  sundress beach shoes, a hat and cover-up for the sun, and a light sweater in the cooler months. Don’t forget the sunblock and bug spray!

Three well stocked stores can be found in New Plymouth, the settlement on Green Turtle Cay. Local cuisine can be sampled at several native restaurants in town, easily accessible by either golf cart of boat. Fancier palates can be satisfied at two nearby clubs.

Please note that fruits and vegetables cannot cross the Bahamian border, however, frozen foods are accepted.

Upon reservation, we will send you suggestions to help guide you with what to bring.

Green Turtle Cay is one of many barrier islands in the Abaco region of the Bahamas. It’s also the most northern cay as well as the most populated one in the area, with a permanent population of about 450. The village of New Plymouth, the island’s main settlement, is located on the southern tip of the island and approximately 3 1/2 miles from Cocobay Cottages. Founded in 1770 by loyalists, it boasts quite an interesting history! You can learn all about it at our two museums located at the center of the village.

One thing you’ll never forget are the welcoming and friendly people. Oh, and while you’re here, make sure you try the Goombay Smash at Miss Emily’s Blu B Bar – we promise you won’t regret it!
