Best spot on the beach

This has the least people, nicest reef and is easy to get to. There are also some trees to provide some much needed shade and few picnic tables.

We went here on the last day and so glad we did! Worth it and there were so many fish to see. We saw a sting ray, sea urchin and lots of other pretty fish and coral. Recommend and easy to get to and swim to once get to the beach.

Off the beaten path and away from it all, if you love to snorkel this is a must visit location in Grand Cayman. Calm, beautiful waters make this easy to access beach great for all levels of swimmers and snorkelers alike. The reefs are beautiful and fish, turtles and rays plentiful. Bring a lunch; enjoy the day!

We wanted to snorkel/spend a bit of time at the beach while our cruise docked in Grand Cayman. Towards the end of our bike tour, we stopped at this stunning beach. The water is the bluest, clearest waters we have ever laid our eyes upon. Pictures will never delight us as we experienced that day. Crowds- not here! We were... More

We got off our cruise ship and rented a car. We drove to this beach and WOW it was worth it! There were no crowds and the water was unbelievable! It made the whole family happy. Sun for the sun worshipers and shade for the pale ones.... Snorkeling was great! We saw a sting ray! Can't wait to go back!

If you are on a cruise that stops in Grand Cayman, this is the place to spend the day! The beach is in a residential area so don't expect any public facilities but there are plenty of trees to offer you enough shadow to appreciate the view and relax. The water is so clear and the area is perfect for... More

I have to share the fact that I had my first experience with sea life here, a small shark swam by me and I freaked out a bit, soon I was really wanting to get out of the water and my friend kept yelling at me to 'swim to shore' and I did. And there is the place I was... More

This beach has a vast area of public parking, a beautiful drive to get here, trees for shade, plenty of places for picnics, a boat launch, rentals for kayaks/canoes and a large reef area.

Everything everybody says about this place is correct. The reef straight out from the walkway was amazing. Brings your mask and flippers and enjoy the delight.

This was really the best spot we found and it was as easy to snorkel as getting in the water. Thankfully this beach was unaffected by typical early December weather/maritime conditions.
