We visited Cemetery Beach twice during our week's visit because we enjoyed it so much. The water is absolutely clear and it's a great place to snorkel. We saw a giant sea turtle there our first visit. The reef is beautiful as you get out further and the fish get more plentiful, but there are things to see fairly close... More

The snorkeling here is so amazing it made our trip! I swam with tons of turtles and an eagle ray. There are thousands of fish and beautiful coral. The beach is lined by trees right outside the cemetary so you can sit in the shade. There are a lot of ants but they dont bite. If you go early enough... More

Visited in March 2014, nice shady beach with beautiful clear water. Excellent snorkelling, saw moray eels and a barracuda amongst lots of other lovely reef fish! Would definitely return when visiting Grand Cayman.

Spent the day at Cemetery beach and had a great time. Yes, it is behind a cemetery. Yes it is unusual to have to walk through a graveyard to get to the beach. And yes, we walked past the cemetery crew preparing to inter a recently deceased person. However, be respectful and you won't find yourself starring in a ghost... More

Big beach area under big trees! Snorkeling is good, lots of reef areas. Parking is an issue and you have to walk past the cemetery to get to the beach.

Lots to see while snorkeling, great access for kids, shade on the beach from trees for some cover from the sun. entrance to the water is rocky - may want to bring water shoes.

Nice beach with shade. Good beach for swimming. Snorkeling is easy but a little farther out and there is a current around to adjust to. Coral and fish easily seen. No facilities. Must walk through the cemetery to get to which is weird. Park on road in front of the cemetery.

We returned twice to Cemetary beach to snorkel. My 5 year old had never snorkeled and she loved it. I hooked arms with her and swam her out.,We saw all kinds of fish. You do have to swim out a little but I did not have to overexert myself in any way. Where my daughter did not make it snorkeling... More
