Turtle Beach is a very beautiful and quiet beach with fantastic views, and faces directly South towards Nevis. It has a lovley breeze off the Ocean with a barrier reef on the East end that creates a protected calm section in the bay. The beach is really only used by owners and guests living and staying at Turtle Beach. Cruise ship passengers very seldom visit this beach and local vendors do not go there. There are 20 homes and villa rentals there, such as the beautiful rental villa, Ocean Song Villa and cottage, and only one restaurant that only opens in the evening for special events. Cockleshell bay is one bay over and has a few restaurants and watersports. This is where the crouds of cruise ship passengers and vendors go. Very few lucky tourists venture over to Turtle Beach. The best accessible coral reef on the island for snorkelling is right off Turtle Beach. There are Turtle Grass beds and sandy pools inside are outside of the reef which are nurseries for many Juvenile forms of marine life including lobsters. Many Green turtles, Hawksbill turtles and Eagle Rays live on the reef and in the narrow shallow channel between Turtle Beach, Booby Island and Nevis. The East end of Turtle Beach is excellent for beach combing.
