This was our second trip to Grand Cayman. After staying last year at a very secluded location on East Shore, we decided to try the South end of 7-Mile beach between busy Kirk's Georgetown and Camana Bay. We weren't disappointed with the simple, unpretentious accommodations. The 2-bedroom (3-bed & pull-out sofabed) vacation condo was relatively spacious, clean, calm, and conveniently an easy walk across the street to a big supermarket (that offers deals over minimum limit$ on Mon-Tues. weekly). Linens were plentiful, albeit bath products were not. Though the pool and beach were small, from units 1-2, kids remain safely in view from the TV/ living room. Tours Cayman offers complimentary pickups at the small parkinglot infront of the office, so we snorkelled for $35 at 4 sites in North Sound, including Stingray City, which is unforgettable. When the kids wanted to play on sandier stretches of beach, we paid at Westin and at Grand Cayman Beach Suites (Red Sail's flagship) for lunch at poolside patio bars, to allow the kids to bury themselves or build castles nearby. Then, to save over $100 US (the cost to feed or dine a family of four at any of the island's restaurants), we returned to Coral Sands for 'home' cooked supper. Mornings were relaxed, to avoid cruiseship traffic--up to 13,000 or more day visitors. Afternoons were reserved for sightseeing or water sports. To snorkel & see amazing marine life, it was a 10-minute drive by Andy's Rent-a-Car up 7-Mile or West Bay--to reach Cemetery or Turtle Reef waters. Great scuba diving or underwater photography along South Shore could be accessed 10-min. drive South any morning to the dive center behind Sunset House Hotel at 390 Church Street S. Window shopping, activities, exploring...there was something for nearly everyone & within reach. For a family of youngsters, Coral Sands is a nice, quiet base from which to enjoy Cayman island.
