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.

We enjoyed a wonderful day of snorkeling and walking along the beach here. We stayed at the West Bay area, so this was quick for us to get to.

We heard that the snorkeling was good at this beach, but no so much for us. The day we went was a beautiful clear sunny day, no too much wind, but the water was not clear at all. It looked like it was all stirred up. Maybe there was a storm out in the ocean and it effected the water.... More

This is one of the best snorkeling sites on the island... a must do! The coral reef is just a short swim from the beach, and the currents are not a concern at this location. We saw dozens of tropical fish varieties...including the prettiest I have ever seen...called a blue damselfish.

This wonderful public beach is NOT visited by hoards of cruise ship people. There are trees for shade as you dry off. The snorkeling is great with 2 large areas of coral to check out. The fish are varied and plentiful. Some areas have the smaller fish sort like a "fish nursery"but there are plenty of larger fish also. The... More
