Green Cay is a 14 acre hidden jewel. All topo maps show it is flat but it is not. Aligned with sandy spit (where the Corona beer commercial was filmed) there is a small shallow reef connecting them with snorkling and a small beach. Green Cay is rounded on the west side where the boats come in to anchor to use the beaches, but the east and north sides exposed to waves of the ocean have cut ragged impressive cliffs. The island has only goats and is owned by the BVI government. There are official nails Bench Marks driven into the rocks at the summit but I can find no official elevation provided on the internet. The maps showing that there is not even 20 meters of elevation are not correct. The climb up to the ridge line along the coast and HP is clearly higher than 60 feet and I have estimated is over 100 feet. The HP is obvious on the ground but I have attempted to located it from the aerial based on the rocks proximity to the shrubs on the top of the NW side.
