Green Turtle Cay was one of the first islands settled in The Bahamas, in the 1770’s by the Revolutionary War Loyalists. Many of the island’s 500 or so residents can trace their ancestry back to these Loyalists. Visitors can take the paved road from The Green Turtle Club to the town of New Plymouth and enjoy the tropical scenery on the short golf cart commute.
The Town of New Plymouth is a quiet, 18th century village by the sea, offering a variety of galleries, restaurants, shops, and museums. A Loyalist Memorial Statue Garden was erected in the heart of New Plymouth in memory of the founders of Green Turtle Cay and is open to the public.
