The beach was nice and the water was calm enough to take our 2 and 4 year old snorkeling to see some fish. The reef wasn’t much to look at but there were lots of neat fish to see.

The water was very clear when we snorkeled here. We saw quite a variety of marine life including squid and a stingray. The beach is great and can give kids of all ages a good opportunity to build whatever sand creation their heart desires.

My husband and I were staying at the Marriott and hopped on the "Public Bus" one morning to check out the snorkeling at Cemetery Beach/Reef. We swam out a little ways and first spotted a Needlefish, as we got closer to the reef area (about...More

A semi-hidden gem. This beach is quiet, never crowded, and perfect for snorkeling. The only beach we spend time at while in grand cayman.

We went here for snorkeling and it is off the beat path of 7 mile beach. We swam out about 80 yards to a beautiful reef full of fish. There were some closer, but this one had way more fish. The beach does not have...More

Best to go just after 1300-1400, that way you avoid the cruise ship passengers, not that there are a lot, but you can end up being the only ones there! A chair would be ideal as there are trees for shade, but just a towel...More

This was one of my favorite island snorkel spots, before I became a diver. Great little beach with shade and very good snorkeling, a short swim out from the beach. Just respect the gravesites, as you pass through to the beach, after parking or getting...More

I went to a bunch of west Grand Cayman snorkeling sites and this was my favorite. The reef, however, is a ways out from the beach. Just swim straight out from where you enter the beach and you'll see it. LOTS of jellyfish! The beach...More

We picked this spot for snorkeling after scoping out other areas of the island that were super choppy due to winds. This beach was nice and calm. It’s a bit of a swim, not bad, out to the coral areas but once there the snorkeling...More

Great snorkeling, quiet beach, great for families or couples that want some quiet. The swimming area is great, then you can snorkel out if you go further towards the buoy's. Lots of shade, but plenty of spots to lay out and get a tan!

There were no bathrooms or showers at cemetery beach. The only beach area that we went to that had public showers and restrooms was up at Rum Point. But I think I remember reading Smiths Cove has restrooms but we did not... More
