Great beach

This is a great beach for families. The water was a little too rough on the day we went but other times it is like a lake. The beach is clean and safe.

To date, our best snorkeling adventure in Cayman. Interesting location, north of 7 mile Beach. . You literally park next to a cemetery and walk down the access road alongside of it. You then arrive at a beautiful beach with fine sand, the equal to any beach along 7 mile. It wasn't crowded at all. We had snorkeled about the... More

We visit here each year and really enjoy the quiet waters and beach. Not as busy as the beach on SMB. Bring your own cooler and chairs and enjoy the day. There is some shade as well should you need it, nice walking and just relaxing.

Cemetery Beach/Reef is a nice place to spend half a day or so if you are looking for someplace a little off the beaten path. Excellent snorkeling close to shore, and an easy busy bus ride from the piers, but not crowded with tourists like Seven Mile Beach. There are several palm trees close to the cemetery that provide nice... More

Great snorkeling, lots of different fish, can see rays, turtles, squid, nice coral heads. Not far from shore so even a new snorkler could do it. Just swim out from across the villa with 3 arches and you can't miss it.

My wife and I took a bus ridge and were let off at the Cemetery for which Cemetery Beach was named. We strolled the rows of tombs, noting the names and unique customs of burial. As we entered the beach, we passed through a picket fence that framed the water ahead. It was a beautiful view and I snapped several... More

Parking is a premium, find a spot and go snorkeling. Nice reef within reach of the beach. Lot's of sealife ranging from Scorpion fish to stingrays. Great visibility.

The beach itself is fantastic. Quiet, beautiful, shaded, outside the main hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach. We didn't think the snorkeling was anything to write home about - just fair. That said, if you want a great, quiet beach, this is definitely a great choice.

We were looking for a place to snorkel with our 2 young daughters. We had seen good reviews about this beach. We were nervous that we wouldn't be able to find any parking when we got there. There was more than enough spots. And we got there later in the afternoon. The view is beautiful even before you get in... More

Our family of four loved walking into the water from shore and in less than five minutes seeing incredible fish and coral. This was one of our favorite spots to snorkel in Grand Cayman. It was not crowded and you could swim a long way and see new fish and formations as you went. The beach was clean and had... More
