I have been two separate times, a year apart. Both great! Calm beach, lots of trees and chairs for sun and shade. Hammocks set up between a couple trees. Depending on how many cruise ships are in port, or how many tours are stopped there at the current time it can get very busy and chairs can be lacking. The... More

We loved Rum Point Beach in the Cayman Islands. We were cruising and had only one day in Grand Cayman and booked a tour that included a stop on Rum Point Beach after snorkeling and swimming with the stingrays. We were taken by a private boat to the island and then returned to the port to board our ship later... More

Not the best beach I've been to, but a nice small beach with beautiful water. You can go out pretty far and still only be waist deep in the water. We had a nice relaxing day here. Not much beach to go around so it did feel somewhat cramped. The scenery and beauty of it, made up for it. You... More

But this is a bit of a tourist trap. Nice drinks and pleasant people, but seriously overpriced for what you get.

We have been to Rum Point on several different trips to Grand Cayman. It is a nice place to relax and swim. They have food and drinks for purchase, so you aren't allowed to bring your own. There are lounge chairs, hammocks and picnic tables. They also have a souvenir shop there. The best place to snorkel here is under... More

Nice beachfront, but a bit small....sandy clear water with chairs and relaxing hammocks. There is a beach bar and dive shop and lots of watersport rentals. The homes along the way are something to see!

We visited Rum Point Beach in 10/2013 and sting ray city via cruise excursion. Love this beach, tropical feel, clear water and shops. Under the pier there are rocks with lots of fish and sea growth on them, but they are sharp like corals, so wear water shoes. We did and got amazing pictures and video.

We went near sunset. Not too many tourists. Nice hammocks to enjoy, though a few more would be nice. The employees were all very friendly. The beach is OK, not overly beautiful as it is on seven mile beach. But as a place to just go and hang out with friends, have a few drinks and enjoy a sunset, absolutely... More

We've been to Grand Cayman several times and now exclusively stay on the north side, near Rum Point. We first came while we were on a cruise. We have high school friends who moved there after they got married, so we thought we'd check the place out and visit old friends at the same time. The capital city is Georgetown... More
