We really had a great time photographing the colorful starfish. The water was very still when we were there and we probably saw 25-30 starfish in one small area of beach. Most of the starfish could easily be seen wading up to your waist.

The beach is pretty, as is pretty much every beach in Cayman. And we were sadly disappointed to find only a few starfish. We actually visited starfish point 3 times during our week long vacation, due to various boat tours, and only ever saw a...More

No trip to the island is complete without visiting this quiet nature reserve. It is only about one mile from Rum Point, although the signs are not marked well. Park your car, and safety walk to the point where the water is clear and calm,...More

Starfish Point used to be peaceful where you could find starfish easily now its full of boats playing loud music people having bar-b-q's and spilling their alcoholic drinks into the ocean they even have a water slide anchored off shore. If I was a starfish...More

If you make it to this part of the island, you need to experience the interactions with the starfish. It beach was calm and beautiful. And to hold a live starfish made me feel like a curious child!

Starfish Point is a relatively popular Cayman attraction, and it can be accessed by both car or boat. In fact, many of the shore tours make a stop there. If you decide to go by car, know that Starfish Point is located down a rather...More

They're everywhere! We saw about 25-30 starfish, plus several baby rays. Water is knee deep, if that. The beach offers shade and picnic tables. Perfect place for toddlers, kids, couples, seniors....everyone!

We are a family of 5 (children ages 17, 15 and 8) who will be traveling to GC in July. I'm trying to plan my activities for the week and schedule the must do items. I've only scheduled my bioluminescent kayaks so far. We are interested in the following things and I would like to know when is the best time to schedule them and if any of them can be consolidated. Not sure how long each activity can take. We rented a car for the week so our transportation is set. In looking at the cruise ship...More

Planning 1st trip to GC - stay in North SMB or Kaibo Area? (19 Replies)
Hello, My husband & I are planning a family vacation to Grand Cayman with our two kids, ages 8 & 6 years old. This would be our first trip to the island. We have been spoiled with many fantastic Caribbean vacations, always to the quieter islands like Tortola, Virgin Gorda, St. John, Turks & Caicos (not Grace Bay) & Anguilla. We just about always rent a villa and stay in a remote part of the island directly on the beach. We would like to try Grand Cayman as we've heard it's very safe,...More

I think the northern area of SMB would work very well for you and your family. SMB offers ideal beachfront and the northern area is glorious and quiet yet also in close proximity to numerous restaurants, grocery store, every convenience and seldom affected by the dreaded seaweed issues. There are many lovely condo properties there...Discovery Point, Christopher Columbus, London House, Anchorage, Aqua Bay all get good reviews from those who have stayed there. The condos in the central part of...More

Star fish point (8 Replies)
Hello- thinking of renting a car from our hotel at 7 mile and taking a drive to star fish point. Most of what I saw on TA were posts from several years ago. Has anyone been there recently or have any feedback if it's worth the drive? Supposed to be pretty windy/cloudy tomorrow and thought this might be a good option for the day. Thanks all

We were there last year at this time and, honestly, Starfish Point was a bit underwhelming in terms of Starfish. We stayed at Kaibo, so we were within walking distance of Starfish Point, and ended up walking down there a few times. At the most, we saw two Starfish any time we went; we actually saw more Starfish at Kaibo. I wouldn't discourage you from going there, but if you are going to rent a car, I would make a day of it and maybe have lunch at Kaibo, or hit Rum Point too. Starfish...More
