About
If you're looking for a tranquil beach escape, visit Rum Point on Grand Cayman. The calm and shallow turquoise waters and the long stretch of sandy beach make it perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling—try to spot the reef fishes, stingrays, and turtles in the water. There are also beach volleyball courts for some fun with the crew. In the evening, enjoy the stunning sunset views from the dock or rent a kayak and witness the neon glow of the Bioluminescent Bay. You can stop by on a sailing tour of Grand Cayman or book a villa near the beach for the ultimate experience. – Tripadvisor

    Rum Point rebuilding…
    This place has been my “namaste getaway” for some time. Sadly, the last hurricane hit Rum Point hard. The owners are rebuilding, and it’s going to look amazing when it’s finished. Unfortunately, the fish have taken a bit of a siesta, too, as the hurrricane washed a lot away and much of the coral is dead. There wasn’t much to see in the water last month. Fingers crossed that 2024 brings this place back to life. ❤️🤞

    Great destination
    It’s a drive from seven mile beach but if you plan on going to the caves which is highly recommended it is only 15 minutes. There is a nice restaurant near Rum point. My kids are 19, 16 & 15 and they enjoyed themselves.

    It’s a beach and a bar
    If you don’t have access to a beach, Rum Point is a good place to go and hang out. Often there’s music playing. Beach is free access but bring everything. The part of the beach with amenities will cost you. Nice bar/restaurant there although we only tried the bar. Drinks aren’t cheap, but are full sized and strong. Great place to view the sunset

    Great beachfront experience
    One of a kind oceanfront beach experience. Completely renovated beach bar with lots of tables, lounging areas, chaise lounges. Great frozen drinks and a diverse menu. (Please no outside food or beverages.) calm waters make snorkeling easy. Nice pier, cool breezed and palms. Had to pull myself away at day’s end. Highly recommend it.

    Nice to have chairs available, not great snorkeling. Good for kids.
    We drove to the Rum Point Club on a low cruise day. We were able to use deck chairs and found some shade. We obeyed their posted notice to not bring in food and coolers... But others did not. The swimming area was nice, especially for kids. I snorkeled from the shore but there was a lot of grass and not many fish to see. We were expecting to have to pay rental on the chairs, but we did not. We also figured there would be cocktail waiters hounding us to purchase drinks and food, but that was not the case. There are food and drinks available but we weren't there at a meal time, so we didn't order. Nice restrooms and showers. Water sports available for rent. There's a dive shop and a pier. There is also an adjacent public beach but it wasn't very tidy and was completely shaded, so we opted to visit the club. We stayed a couple hours and then drove on down to Starfish Point, which we enjoyed more... But no chairs.

    Sad that it’s no longer a charming and peaceful oasis
    Sadly it’s a victim of its own success. We used to come here on the day before our flight home to relax and wish we were staying longer. Now it is so crowded, over developed, and has lost its charm. We stopped by after the cave tour since we were so close. People, crowds, noise everywhere, and no available chairs or spots to lounge. It was not what we remember, and it is no longer what made it so great. We are sorry for anyone who never got to visit it when it was charming.

    One to miss
    We often visit here, but we were disappointed with rum point. The changes they have made are wonderful, modern and much needed for the area. However, the food and drinks were average and the service poor. We would no longer drive here from our hotel at the other side of the island. Nothing on this side worth the dive.

    Beautiful location, shame about the food
    About a 40 minute drive out of George Town, Rum Point beach club is a stunning location. Set in a little bay which is shallow for quite a way out, the beach chairs and parasols are free to use. No outside food and drink allowed but there is a bar and restaurant which is how they make their money. I wouldn’t mind paying $14 for two coffees but these were mediocre at best and the chicken sandwich that husband and I shared was only ok! So 5 stars for the location and 3 stars for food and drink. That said the virgin pina colada was yummy.

The beach was great, we saw turtles when snorkeling and the drinks at the bar were tasty. The chairs and umbrellas were nice and made the whole day relaxing.

Honestly, we were underwhelmed. We thought this would be a good day trip from Seven Mile Beach. Unfortunately, it was not worth the time, money or effort. The best part of the day was the great service from the cayman ferry and a decent lunch at Kaibo. Seven Mile Beach is far superior!

We were group of friends (5) enjoying the the day off, having our drinks and food, we were not planning to leave, instead have more snacks and drinks, the waitress came with her pocker face left the bill on our table without saying a single word. We instantly felt unwelcome. I had to go and ask the waitress, where she coldly said: “my apologies”. She is absolutely not the person to work in customer service. She justified herself saying ITS BUSY with an attitude, not an excuse! In fact, more than half of the tables were empty and only bar were busy. Just shock.
Shout out to the all bartenders, amazing drinks!!!

We had a wonderful day at rum Point. It is a private beach, but usage is free. There are beach chairs set up with umbrellas. I would suggest you get there early if you want umbrellas. We pulled chairs beneath a large fir tree near the water. Turned out to be a great spot. There is a restaurant there and a full bar. You are not allowed to bring in outside food or drinks.not a bad trade off for a very nice beach with nice facilities. We enjoyed it so much we plan to go back this week.

My family and I first visited Rum Point 9 years ago when it was known for its very rustic charm. Skip to this trip, and Rum Point has grown up! The vibe is still relaxing and calm, and they did an excellent job in their renovations. Their new bar area is beautiful, but their service left something to be desired. It felt like we were bothering the staff any time we ordered anything; there was no energy behind their efforts and their POS system kept getting knocked offline. Their drinks are overpriced and there is hardly alcohol in them; hence why my group switched to beer only. It is still beautiful, but it lost some of its charm. Highly recommend a visit, but it isn’t what it used to be. The water is still exceptional on the Point and they installed nice floating beds to soak in the hot sun. We’ll always be back to visit, but I hope management works with their staff to make their guests feel more welcome.
