We traveled the island in search of shore accessible snorkeling. This spot was better than some but not the best, worth the stop, but limited coral heads. Peaceful on a calm day.

The cemetery beach is one of our favorite beaches in Grand Cayman. You can park on the main road right alongside the cemetery and walk down the small path to the beach. There are shady areas and plenty of room for sunbathers. Beautiful sandy beach, safe to swim for kids. Great for snorkeling. I don't think they have bathrooms. There... More

We've been to the Caymans many times but never really ventured to out the public beaches. This place is a gem. Very quiet, with great reefs full of wildlife. The major reef is about 100yds offshore, but it's an easy swim. The water was very clear compared to the other areas we'd been to. The beach itself has lots of... More

Had some difficulty initially locating the entrance to this beach, but we parked at the entrance of the cemetery and walked through to the beach. We took a little while to find the reef but when found it was beautiful. Untouched and gorgeous corals with an abundance of fish. One day goes by easily snorkeling here. The beach is also... More

This magnificent gem was a delightful spot to bask in the sun, swim and snorkel, and take in a glorious sunset or two! While technically on the Seven Mile Beach stretch, it is a bit further out, meaning it's not as crowded as some of the other beaches. The sand is a pristine white, and the water is such a... More

Swim straight out off of 7 Mile Beach to get to the reef of Cemetery Beach Reef. The water's depth will vary up to about 20 to 30 feet, depending how far you swim from shore. You will see various tropical fish by the reef. The visibility is excellent. You may see a stingray, or a sea turtle. It is... More

The best snorkeling area on Seven Mile beach . Bring some food for the fishes and snorkeling gears you can swim 100 feets from the beach and you will be surrounded by hundred of colorful and friendly fishes , then have a picnic on the beach under the big trees,

If you have your own transportation and you're looking for a beautiful beach away from the resort areas, this shouldn't be missed. No facilities of any kind there, not even a place to wash off salt & sand, so be prepared for that. (Maybe bring a large jug of tap water from your hotel/resort) However there is natural shade in...

Had a car so we drove there. Park along The main street along the cemetery and walk down path to beach. The beach is beautiful and has plenty of space and shaded areas. I snorkeled with a turtle there :)

This beach was hard to find but worth turning the car around and looking for. (Look for the fire station, the beach is across the street) There were a total of 5 people here. Good snorkeling, a few picnic tables and some shade. It's a beautiful beach.
