Visit New Plymouth: The village of New Plymouth was originally settled in 1786 by Loyalists to the British Crown seeking a new place to live after the United States’ Revolutionary War. This historic town is located on the southern end of Green Turtle Cay. Golf carts are the way most people get around the island and visitors usually rent at least one (which holds four people).
In New Plymouth you will find homes dating back to 1800. Pick up a copy of the Architectural Walking Tour booklet for a wonderful self-guided tour of Historic New Plymouth. Don’t miss the Albert Lowe Museum, Vert’s Model Ship shop, and the Memorial Sculpture Garden.
New Plymouth is also where you will find small grocery stores, several restaurants and bars as well as the Cay’s liquor store.
