I didn't enjoy this beach. There was trash everywhere and the sea was rough. A lot of mosquitoes made our visit a little uncomfortable.

This island is within view just across the water from Tamarind Reef Resort. We rented kayaks from their recreation staff on the beach, which was free for resort guests. It was pretty breezy so id recommend at least one strong paddler. We snorkeled on the east side of Green Cay and even with some gentle rolling waves had about 15ft... More

If you can follow the signs and find your way down to Green Cay, you will be happy. When we finally got down there we were a little confused. It was not a beautiful beach as we had anticipated, and the land was not very stunning. There is great snorkeling if you follow the shore to the end. Stay closer... More

Just you, a strip of beach and masses of conch shell describes this lonely bit of earth. Access by kayak as not sure what else could reach the only publicly accessible bit of the cay.

Snorkeled all morning and got married in the afternoon. The staff was great! They put a palm frond and hibiscus arbor together and acted as our best man, maid of honor and witnesses. Couldn't ask for a more memorable wedding. Highly recommend.

Taramind Reef beach is clean, safe and comfortable. There are chairs and huts for rent, you can also rent kayaks and paddle out to Green Cay and/or snorkel around the Cay (lots of sea fans). The Deep End bar is next door and offered a full service bar & restaurant serving B,L, & D. They also have public restrooms. If... More

Located at the Tamarind Reef Resort and Green Cay Marina, it is a great smaller relaxing beach with an amazing view of buck Island. You can also rent kayaks and snorkel gear. Saw a Sea Turtle while snorkling!! The reef is right off the beach so even if you don't want to swim out far it is perfect.

My husband and I were staying at the Tamarind Reef Resort and decided to rent some kayaks from the beach shack and kayak to this inhabited island. Not too far of a distance from the marina and took us about 15 minutes kayak ride. We took in the nice water to bath and sunbathe. Definitely is an enjoyable exploration for... More
