A short walk up Long Bay will bring you to Bita Bay, a sandy cove protected from north winds with excellent snorkeling along a small reef right off the shore.
A 15-minute walk along the shore to the south of the cottages brings you to beautiful Gilliam Bay beach – with the remote and deserted Town Flat beach just around the sandy point at the southernmost end of the island.
At the north end of the island, you can explore Ocean Beach, comprised of North Pointe Beach and Middle Beach on the Atlantic side. Lovely Coco Bay faces the Sea of Abaco, and is an ideal beach to visit during west and south winds.
If you rent a small boat, you can visit beaches on undeveloped islands to the north and south of Green Turtle Cay – or explore the vast, deserted beaches that stretch north of the ferry dock along the eastern shore of Great Abaco Island, just a short ride across the Sea of Abaco.
No matter how you count them, there are enough miles of beautiful white sand beaches to keep beachcombers, shellers and explorers busy for days on end.
