During our recent trip to Grand Cayman, we went several times to Cemetery Beach. It is really beautiful and certainly not as crowded as Seven Mile Beach. The water was beautiful and I would certainly recommend going there. You can also go snorkelling directly from the beach but you have to swim out quite a distance to see anything.

Beautiful, clean beach with lovely shade. This is an amazing snorkeling location. We also dive the reef with DiveTech from West Bay. Stunning.

Not too crowded. Great snorkeling! Saw all types of fish out by the reef. Nice shade trees when you need them. Just enjoyed this beach immensely.

Great sand, beautiful water. Calm waters, and greats snorkeling. You can go wayyyy out and it will get a little rockier, some coral too. My boyfriend swam over a stingray for a long time, watching it eat. I saw many colorful fish hiding under the rocks from the sun. Very easy snorkel for a beginner, but would be disappointing for...

Seven Mile Beach is beautiful, but most is crowded with no shade or snorkeling. We like a beach that has beautiful sand, good snorkeling, and shade. Cemetery Beach fits this. This beach is on the north end of Seven Mile. Much more of a laid back, relaxing, family beach.

My husband found this spot somehow and I was so happy that he did. While it took us a little while to figure out the bus system (that's another review), once we made it there, it was well worth the initial hassle. Cemetery beach is an excellent find, tucked behind a very non-creepy cemetery. The taxi drivers and bus drivers... More

This reef is excellent but you need to be precise to find it. From the road (West Bay), walk along the path next to the cemetery. Once you reach the beach, go to your right. The second large house has a curved balcony with a shiny, stainless steel railing. There is also a long green hedge in front of the... More

Loved the beach, the water and the view. Snorkellign was fun but would be disappointing if you are expecting anything more than seeing fish and dead coral. Definitely need to do North end of island for snorkeling. Rum point Coral gardens and barrier reef off of Cayman Kai public beach were spectacular for coral life, turtles, fish, rays.

The beach is beautiful. Clean; has an area with shade for those that do not want to be in the sun. The day we were there, the snorkeling was not terrific. Do not know if this is typical or not. We were disappointed. I guess the fish did not know we were coming that day.

It's a very nice sandy beach, great to walk along and snorkel from on calm days. We come here several times on our trip since where we stay is mostly iron shore. Never been that it's crowded like 7 Mile Beach but there are no places to eat or drink along it so bring a cooler if you want.
