As you desire to get away from the crowds, this is a terrific beach to hang out at and enjoy beautiful views and beautiful clear ocean water.

Six years ago, this was the place to snorkel on 7 Mile Beach. Not now. The reef is dying. It is very sad to see. A reminder to wear reef safe sun screens and rash guards..

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.

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.

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
