Beach Notes

While Grand Cayman is only 22 miles wide some guests prefer to be closer to Georgetown and Seven Mile Beach for day trips. Castillo Caribe is only 5-10 minutes from George Town and the beaches on the west coast of the island. 

The villa enjoys a sandy beach area, however, guests need to be mindful that this is a marine area with a coral reef and wading in the water will require hard-soled pool shoes or fins. 

This is not a barefoot beach for swimming. One can walk either way on the beach and barely see a soul. This is a residential neighborhood and not a tourist area.

The south of the island usually enjoys a pleasant gentle breeze that keeps any insects at bay and obviates the need for a screened porch. 

Driving west of the house will take you towards George Town and there is a very nice spot called Smith Cove with barefoot swimming and snorkeling.  Dart Beach is also there as well and open to the public.

For more barefoot swimming on Seven Mile Beach, you can swim at Royal Palms, Governor's Beach, the "Public " Beach (all beaches are technically public) and Tiki Beach near the Kimpton, as well as snorkel at Cemetery Reef. 

Nice beach with amazing views. Excellent snorkeling out at the reef.  Shallow water entry. Nice for kayaking and paddle boarding. Swimmable once the water is deep enough.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high water mark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and weed seasonally. Sargassum weed is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove it and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind the villa, we will reach out to the owner for solutions. We try our best to work around mother nature.

The Guest Service Fee includes your Platinum Silver Thatch Membership.
