Picture your dream tropical vacation. Does it include crystal clear water and soft, white sand? How about warm sunshine? Maybe your idyllic getaway involves plenty of peace. If you said yes to any of the above, you’d love the beaches in Grand Cayman. The best way to experience all five beaches is by staying at a Grand Cayman Villas & Condos rental property.
Top Five Beaches in Grand Cayman
The Grand Cayman Island beaches are perfect for those looking to get away from it all. Plus, when you visit these heavenly spots, you can experience some of the best-undisturbed swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing in the Caribbean!
Located along the island’s western peninsula, Seven Mile Beach is the heart of the island’s tourist economy. Cemetery Beach tends to be a bit more secluded and perfect for couples and families looking for quiet enjoyment. Offshore lies the Kittiwake Shipwreck, a sunken U.S. Navy ship from 2011, a popular snorkel and scuba site.
This is an excellent option for some much-needed R&R by the sea. The beach—and the entire north side of the island—is a snorkeling paradise. We suggest taking a short walk to the right of the pier and swimming out a bit for the best snorkeling. Keep your eyes peeled for lionfish, lobsters, tons of reef fish, and even manta rays!
Traveling south from Rum Point down to the end of Water Cay Road is Starfish Point, another isolated beach home to–you guessed it–starfish! These delicate creatures hang out in the shallow water and are most visible early in the day, before noon.
When you visit, snap a few pictures and spend some time swimming and relaxing. Just don’t take the starfish out of the water, please!
The Smith Cove is a beautiful place for sunbathing and snorkeling. It sits south of George Town, and it’s brimming with lively local arts and spectacular views. Bring your camera for the views and the art. Don’t forget your bathing suit because the water is ideal for snorkeling and wading on the shores.
This is a great beach if you want to get away for a moment with someone special. It’s a standout romantic spot on the Cayman Islands. In addition, there is remarkable sea life on and off the beach. It’s one of the best-secluded beaches you can find here.
