The Ship Yard Beach is located at what was the first settlement in Great Harbour Cay, an area formerly known as Bamboo Cay. It is among the most visited and best beaches here, and was a favorite of French super model/actress Bridgette Bardot in the late 1960s.

Surrounded by sea-grape trees, it is the best beach for suntanning with limited shading. The calm, shallow water is also great for children. At low tide, you can see how the sea water has worn away the rocky outcroppings. A 200-year-old Tamarind tree still stands on the site, which boat builders used for shade while making their boats; it also made it easy for them to launch their vessels right off the beach.
