Cemetery beach was our favourite on the island. It's beautiful, quiet, has shady spots and picnic tables for those that want it, parking is easy and free, and the snorkelling is the best in Cayman. A few large reefs sit about a 100 yards off shore in about 5-15 feet of water. We saw turtles, barracudas, and tons of fish... More

This beach was recommended for snorkeling and it did not disappoint. My husband and daughter went out and followed a turtle around for hours! We were there in the off season so it was very quiet. We were happy to sit under a tree in the shade and the beach was easy to access by parking on the road by... More

Nice swimming beach with no crowd. Snorkeling wasn't real great the day we were there but the water was choppy. No facilities so make sure you plan for that.

We are still talking about how beautiful the water and beach area is at cemetary beach. A must do spot for all Grand Cayman visitors. The water was amazing. Don't expect the most amazing snorkel area but well worth the stop to soak up the beauty of the

We like this beach especially because it's not too long a walk from our son's apartment in West Bay. Also, we get to drop in at Heritage Kitchen on the way back - "score!" We can usually find a nice spot for all in the shade of the trees along the cemetery's edge and then venture out into the beautiful... More

This beach has some of the best snorkeling on the island! We love the variety of fish see! We usually stay at Christopher Columbus Condos and snorkel down to Cemetery Beach every day.

Went for the snorkeling - went all the way out to the first white buoy (15+ min leisurely swim with just snorkel fins, no arms, holding a camera) like lots of people said, but the reef was too deep there so fish too far away. Saw my first turtle 30-40 ft away (but more & could touch them at SPOTTS... More

Not the best beach but AMAZING snorkeling. Never overcrowded, beautiful, and safe. The beach isn't terrible by any means, just not the same as the perfect stretch of seven mile. This is a locals beach with the best off shore snorkeling.
