Gorgeous Beach!

Perfect water, plenty to do, lots of amenities available. And be prepared to be bombarded with local selling their wares and services.

Nice to hang out there for a day of swimming, walking, snorkeling, and then there is always lounging with a pina colada.

we snorkled right off the beach on a coral reef. amazing fish and turtles. No shells on this beach which makes barefoot beach walks perfect! I felt very safe on this beach. The locals were so friendly and protective of travelers.

The grandson and I got to this beach as part of a zip line excursion from a Carnaval cruise. We booked a non-cruise line excursion through "Cheap Cruises" The zip lines were great, no climbing up to go down ! This was rather important to me as I qualify as an "Old Fart"(72) .

The beach was lovely with chairs and umbrellas in front of all of the restaurants and resorts. The reef is very close so very easy to swim and snorkeling. No boat ride necessary.

The beach was nice but everything is built to within about 100' of waters edge. From our hotel is was a 5 minute walk to the west to snorkel the coral reef. A lot of sea life in close proximity to the shore. I would say that the drop into the Cayman Trench is within 1/4 mile of the shoreline.... More

The area by infinity bay has the best beach, the best entry up to reef, the cleanest beach, the best coral and no beach traffic . The beach next to it is nice too, has a floating slide. Spend a day or a week.

Sand mites, but did not seem to be as bad as in past years. There was a bad storm before we arrived, and tons of sea weed on shore, but hotel staff worked extremely hard, and was cleaned up quickly

Beautiful beach with clear clean water. Lots of equipment rental shops, bars and restaurants. We were there on a non-cruise ship day so it was relatively quiet.
