Barefoot Beaches: Drink In My Hand, Toes in The Sand

Seascape Villa has plenty of sun and shade to lounge and enjoy the view of Seven Mile Beach.

All of our villas and condos are unique with one common denominator: they are all oceanfront.  However, the topography on which they are situated is diverse.

If you’ve visited our website before you’ve undoubtedly seen photographs of Cayman’s beautiful Seven Mile Beach.  While not quite seven miles, Seven Mile Beach is a 5.5 mile stretch of pristine, white sand lapped by crystal clear water.  No wonder it was voted the #1 Caribbean Beach in 2017 by Trip Savvy.

Did you know Grand Cayman is surrounded by living coral reefs which make for some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world?  And, another fun fact, Grand Cayman and its sister islands–Cayman Brac and Little Cayman–are the actual peaks of the Cayman Ridge–a range of underwater mountains extending from Cuba toward Belize.

Cayman’s coastline is comprised of a limestone mix of coral, mollusk shells and marl called ironshore.   The Cayman beaches that have a mix of ironshore and white sand make for captivating scenery and provide homes for coral species and marine life.

If you want a barefoot beach like Seven Mile, but without the crowds and commercial atmosphere, then you’ll want to look at villas in Cayman Kai & Rum Point. If you like a sandy beach but also love to snorkel, staying in a villa on North Side, South Sound, and East End are all excellent options.  Most properties in these neighborhoods have proximity to coral heads teeming with marine life and are only a few feet from shore in shallow water.

In addition to the Seven Mile Beach condos and villas on our website, the following villas have luxurious barefoot sandy beaches.  This list will make your vacation planning, regardless of budget, a little easier.
