If you are at a hotel on Seven Mile Beach, don't bother with the long drive to Rum Point. Nothing particularly bad about it - its like an 80's or 90's beach/bar/restaurant. But nothing really good either - small crowded beach. There was a nice dock that Red Sail seems to do tours from, but nothing that compares to what... More

We rented a car and drove to Rum Point one day of our vacation. It is so beautiful! There are lounge chairs, in the sun or out, for relaxing and sunning. You can rent jet skis. There is a restaurant, a bar, an outdoor restaurant, and restroom/shower facilities. The view is amazing! You can spend a whole day here, away... More

definitely a must see spot on GC... great little restaraunt on site, does get a bit busy with cruise ship tourists. also, does not aloow you to bring your own food or beverages, which is kinda a drag.

Tourist Trap. Water is really clear and 2 feet high but the actual beach part is tiny and there isn't much to do or even see (snorkel) unless you want to spend 200$ on a jetski or paddle board rental. Not worth the 1 hour drive from our condo. We left after a quick dip and returned to SMB where... More

This was the last stop on a whole island excursion. Just a commercial venture...couple of expensive dining places...a bar...no where to sit unless you are dining...beer was $8.00 per bottle (Carona)... Can snorkel...rent jet skis...couple of expensive shops...if you are staying on this end of the Island, may be a cool hangout, but not worth the drive from Georgetown.

Rum point, the 3 times I have been there, has always been relatively quiet. Of the 2 times I was there, the snorkelling was brilliant, we saw a stingray and my brother came face to face with a barracuda, sticking it's head out from some seaweed! Definitely something he'll remember for a long time! However the 3rd time I went,... More

The beach is located in the quiet area of the northside, away from the seven mile strip. There are two restaurants and a souvenir shop. It is the stopping point for tours of stingray city. The waters are purely blue, but unfortunately it is filled with turtle grass in some areas. Unfortunately the beach is small unlike seven mile beach.... More

A point from which many tours leave/arrive/have lunch. Sunday morning there was sublime, however. Easy swimming, compared to many places in Cayman. You still need water shoes, however.

I booked way in advance with Mark. He actually gave us a better rate than other tours since there were no other bookings at the time. He offered to take us to Rum Point as well, however we decided to do that another day. Mark and his partner were great, we did not have a large group, however we arrived... More
