Turtles at Spotts Beach
Nov 2019
Usually visit Grand Cayman Island yearly. Always spend a morning or afternoon at Spotts beach looking for turtles. Have never failed to find at least one and most times several turtles there.

No turtles

We went at 9am one morning and didn't see one turtle. I guess you have to go more like 7am. It is wavy and the current is very strong. Not real enjoyable. Much better places to snorkel on this island.

Green sea turtles

Went snorkeling at Spotts three times during my stay and saw two or three green sea turtles every visit, was incredible hanging out with these marine reptiles while they went about their business

Turtle watch

Although the day we stopped there the current was too rough to snorkel, we celebrate the sea turtles in the wild. On land we saw these creatures.

Pretty View from the Pier
Feb 2020
Nice public beach away from SMB, plenty of room to spread out and there is a nice pier to get pics of the shore or the beautiful blue water.

Turtles!!!
Feb 2020
What an experience to put on my mask and snorkel and swim out with real sea turtles! Lifetime thrill!! Not suitable for children as there is definitely a current that you need to be aware of . Good parking and great place for a picnic . No place to change into swimsuit and toilet is a porta potty ( which should have been replaced months!!! Ago)

Snorkeling with turtles
Jan 2020
Only snorkeling for turtle watching. Great snorkeling close to shore, also saw stingrays. Short dock attracted a lot of drive-by tourists. 2 large shade cabanas at top of hill by cemetery, and about 6 minimally shady palm trees. Beach is down a bit of a hill from the parking lot and very busy road. One clean and supplied port-a-potty. Lovely soft sand, no washed up trash, sometimes a bit wavy the further you go out. Good place to watch the sunset, for folks staying in Bodden Town like we did. Large snorkeling area but short beach walk to either end, with cool pink sand areas toward both ends. Minor amount of jellyfish, hardly even sting, just brush them off . Parking lot was full but beach and water were not crowded.

Great snorkeling
Jan 2020 • Couples
With the wind coming from the east and north, this was the calmest place for snorkeling on our trip. The water is shallow here, so you are close to the fishes. A lot of grasses off the beach and at first doesn’t look like much, but take your time, be observant , and look for corral heads or other structure to find the fish. We saw many species of fish, typically juveniles, also saw a sting ray, flounder, schools of larger fish, conchs, a cowery, shrimps, fan corral, brain corral, and the highlight was a group of 9 cuttlefish just hanging off the edge of the grasses. The was was clear and warm. Pay attention to currents.

My favorite spot
Jan 2020 • Family
I went only once here but it was after a rainy night and the water was gorgeous and calm. There are strong currents but only if you swim beyond the designated area and there are warnings about not doing it. The beach provides a big enough area for snorkeling. Just do lovely to see a different ecosystem. The waters are shallow and safe for not confident swimmers or kids. My favorite snorkeling spot in the entire island - not because it has the biggest diversity in fish but it is cool to see squids, turtles, a stingray and other fish.

If snorkeling with beautiful sea turtles is on your bucket list, snorkel in this water in the morning!
We saw sting rays too!
