Green Turtle and Guana Cay







We left Treasure Cay with the intent to head straight back to Grand Bahama after spending a beautiful week in Treasure. We headed to Green Turtle Cay about 20 miles away. We had to go outside the inner cays to get there which meant going out one inlet and back in another. We had heard from other cruisers that it could be a tricky passage but it turned out to be a calm, easy day. We arrive in Green Turtle early afternoon and picked up a mooring ball. Inside the harbor it was very calm and we were happy to be on a mooring ball rather than anchored. 

We arrived on Valentines Day with no real plans. Matt and I generally don't like to go out on that day because it always seems very inauthentic. Another boat arrived the same time as us and it turned out they were also young cruisers. We went over to their boat for a bit then headed out to see what the town was like. There went much there but we found one very fun beach bar that had special Valentine themed drinks. The four of us were the only ones there but we had a blast. It wasn't your traditional romantic day but none the less a very exciting night. 

We were planing to leave on Sunday but heard that there was a beach on Guana Cay that was not to be missed. We hopped a ride on a go fast power boat and headed to Guana for the afternoon. The beach was amazing and the beach bar was a pretty entertaining experience. I'm glad we stayed the extra day but felt good to leave the next morning.
