Beaches on Grand Cayman Island
Seven Mile beach
The biggest on Grand Cayman and the most popular. The sand is fine, the water is shallow, and there are numerous activities. You can go parasailing, take helicopter rides, rent a jet-ski, or go tubing. There are also fast food restaurants and many restaurants open to the public at most resorts, along with many beach bars.
Barkers National Park
This beach is unspoiled by crowds or resorts and hotels everywhere. It is very remote and aside from a few BBQ pits and picnic tables there are no real amenities. If seclusion is what you’re looking for this is right up your ally. Since it is a national park you can guarantee that your surroundings will be beautiful and the scenery untouched. You will need transportation to get to the beach but it’s worth it for the tranquility.
The white sands of the beach are surrounded by enormous casuarina trees that shade the numerous hammocks and picnic tables here; there are also restrooms, showers, and watersports. The sunsets here are spectacular and the Rum Point Restaurant is a great location for a romantic dinner. You can get to Rum Point by car or by taking the Rum Point Ferry, a scenic 30 minute ride across the North Sound.
Located along West bay road near the end of the Seven Mile Beach, this beach is great for swimming and sun bathing. There are no public facilities at this beach, but there are several restaurants nearby.
Nice little beach great for sunning, swimming, and great snorkeling in the reef areas just off-shore. A good swimmer will have no trouble getting to and around these reef areas. This beach is a favorite for those who love to play and feed some very friendly local fish and marine life.
