Stables Beach is next to Turtle Bay Resort. Most people come to Turtle Bay for surfing, diving and fishing. There is a reef in the nearshore waters, and beyond this reef is where the surfing area begins. This is where you get some serious waves, especially in the winter months (November to February). The current can be very strong at times, so make sure to check weather conditions before venturing beyond the reef. No lifeguards are stationed here. The Turtle Bay is named after the large number of green sea turtles that inhabit the area and who used to lay their eggs in the sand on the beach years ago (however, they don’t do this anymore).
