Green Cay Beach is located just off of Green Cay Marina, near the Tamarind Reef Resort and Marina. This tiny island is accessible by either boat, kayak or paddle board, but you do pass through a high traffic area at the marina so please be careful. Enjoy some down time on the secluded tiny stretch of sand, go for a swim, and check out the snorkeling around the island. There is an endangered lizard that lives on the island, so please be careful. We wouldn’t recommend going alone, but with another person or small group.
This tiny island is accessible only by either boat, kayak or paddle board from Green Cay Marina or Tamarind Reef Beach.
