This is a quiet beach located in front of a Cemetery. Free street parking. No facilities, so bring your own everything. Snorkeling was just "OK"

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.

This was the best snorkel spot that WE VISITED in our week on Grand Cayman. And we snorkeled everyday in multiple places all over the island. Shade and sun, picnic tables, beautiful wide sand beach, and smaller volumes of visitors. No public bathrooms. Due to...More

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