Green Turtle Cay is the place to come if you are looking for a true island experience and a getaway from the hustle and bustle. Green Turtle Cay is a part of the Abaco chain, which is considered to be one of the most historical of the family islands. When you step off the ferry and get your first feel of the laid-back atmosphere, you will really get that feeling of going traveling back to a time when life was simpler.
Green Turtle Cay is a tropical getaway less than an hour from Florida. To the west is the Sea of Abaco, with its calm shallow waters, and incredible sunsets. To the East is the Atlantic Ocean with the world’s second largest barrier reef, teaming with tropical fish, less than 100 yards from shore.
The Island is about three miles long - one mile across, offering beautiful settings of lush landscapes against white beaches and unbelievable hues of the sea. Originally settled in 1783 by the Loyalists from the Carolinas during The Revolutionary War, New Plymouth has a sense of history and tradition. The village is very picturesque, the architecture is reminiscent of a New England township, but the bright colors make it truly Bahamian. A small museum offers a historical perspective, and art gallery featuring local artists and a bevy of historic homes make for an interesting stroll into the island's past. The town is also very prosperous, offering a number of services and supplies as well as various stores for unique souvenirs.
The water is calm and inviting basically all year round. Virtually the entire coastline is comprised of soft, white, sandy beaches and clearest aquamarine water. You can go to any beach on any given day and be the only people there. The waters are perfect for sailing and there is a regatta held every year around the 4th of July. The fishing is also fabulous year-round, offering catches of grouper, mahi mahi, tuna, and if you’re lucky you might reel in a marlin. A new Bahamas Blue Marlin record of 1,119 pounds was caught June of 2011. There are native fishing guides available for deep-sea and bone fishing tours.
Golden Reef Condos feature 2 luxury apartments in the heart of the historic New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. Named after the direction they face, Sunrise and Sunset have central A/C, two bedrooms and two baths, each with Bahamian cable TV. The architecture depicts the loyalist era of the colonial settlement.
Enjoy the spacious living rooms that open to the verandas and give you a gentle tropical breeze. The living rooms have all the luxuries of home, decorated in pastels and rattan furniture, you will quickly relax into the laid back pace of the island. On the spacious veranda, you can watch a sunrise or sunset depending on the time of day. You can enjoy our sunrise with a cup of coffee and some coconut toast made with fresh island bread baked daily or our sunset with and evening cocktail and fresh fish dinner. Our kitchens are fully equipped with all amenities to prepare a snack or your favorite meal.
Well behaved, housetrained pets are considered on a case-by-case basis. We have a few pet stay requirements which we will share with you and we charge a reasonable, non-refundable pet fee per pet.
The Golden Reef Condos in Green Turtle Cay is a place that embodies native Bahamian life. If you are looking for a place to relax, soak up the sun, and play in the water all day long.... look no further.

Love New Plymouth
Great, clean, and convenient with friendly owners and managers. Been here a number of times and will be back!
Had a great 2 week stay on GTC, definitely looking forward to my next trip.
Wonderful place to be! Unit was clean and staff was friendly!
The stairs were tougher than we thought they would be. Samuel took bags down when we left and that really helped. We were disappointed that we were guaranteed Sunrise via email but were placed in Sunset. Sunrise was open till the day before we left. That was really our only disappointment. Wished we had a microwave but it wasn't a huge deal. We are a lot of local wonderful food anyway. Loved McIntosh for breakfast. We had terrible issue with termites during night landing on us in our bed but once we figured out what they were I felt better about that! The staff, especially Samuel, was great and we loved Green Turtle. Can't wait to come back there. May do two weeks next year we liked it so much. Thank you!
Golden Reef Apartments are second story luxury apartments that overlook either Settlement Creek or the Sea of Abaco. (Sunrise and Sunset). They also overlook an historic "Sculpture Garden" featuring busts of some of the people who were involved in making our island what it is today! Living and visiting in a tropical climate does have seasonal issues and termites are a part of the territory. To minimize the situation windows and doors have to be shut. They are also attracted to lights. We do exterminate regularly.
We are pleased when our guests tell us that they will be back,,,we must be doing something right.
Coral Reef Apartment, Sunrise was clean, centrally located in New Plymouth and spacious for our family of four. Having the golf cart in the rental was a great and allowed us to travel to the north end reef for spectacular snorkelling. One thing I do wish is that the double bed were a queen or king. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.
A great place to stay
Beautiful clean apartments on a beautiful Island. Almost everything is within walking distance but if you need a golf cart that's included with the apartment. The clarity of the water is unbelievable and the island has some amazing beaches. Unfortunately, I can't say anything good about Silver Airlines. If you have a choice try to go with another airline.
Golden Reef Apts
Always a great place to stay in New Plymouth if you want easy access to everything in town within walking distance. You will want a golf cart to explore the island but I have been staying at the Golden Reef for years whenever I I have no more than four people. I have made 150 trips throughout the Bahama chain of islands in the last 26 years and the Golden Reef is always clean and comfortable. Its great for young grandchildren as they can roam the town, cant get lost and be safe. The Sunrise Unit that over looks the Bay with a great balcony for drinks and a cigar.
Golf cart included with rental. Visit Green Turtle Dive Center for tours and excursions.
