Enjoyed our 2 trips here to snorkel. The rock outcropping right off shore was truly unique and was more impressive than the low reef. Sunset was phenomenal. Several groups of folks gathered around sunset for beer parties, too much trash for my tastes.

Depending on the current and waves, there are some nice structures and large fish to view not far off the beach.

This was our nightly walk-to spot, to sit and watch the splendid sunset scenes. It was in this vicinity at which we discovered a small, hurricane-wrecked house, amid uprooted trees, with one of them, nearer the beach, serving as a refuge...a heavenly viewing spot of...More

This is very much like the beaches of seven mile BEFORE all of the big hotels got built up. A great swim can be enjoyed by all and for those who are stronger swimmers - go a little further out with a snorkel and enjoy...More

Took the family here to check out the historic cemetery and see if we could spot any baby turtles going for the ocean at the beach. Its got some shaded areas and its a great spot to hang out with friends and picnic.

We aren't big fans of crowds, and this area of the beach (just north of 7 Mile Beach on the west side of Grand Cayman) is not crowded at all. There are several dead reefs with a decent number of fish, and crystal clear water.

Bus is cheap, a few dollars..best to convert some cash to CI money. US dollar x.80= 80 cents per dollar.
