Founded in 1786 by Loyalists fleeing post-Revolutionary War America, and named for the green turtles that once frequented its waters, Green Turtle Cay lies three miles east of Great Abaco, Bahamas and 170 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida.

The island’s main settlement is New Plymouth, a quaint village with narrow streets and neat rows of pastel-painted clapboard houses reminiscent of a New England fishing village.
