Grand Cayman is renowned for its spectacular white-sand beaches. Powdery soft beaches can be found dotted across the island, each offering different scenery and experiences. Here are some tops spots to check out:

Seven Mile Beach

Famous for a reason, Seven Mile Beach – which is actually 5.5 miles long – offers stretches of white sand and crystal-clear waters. It can be busy around the hotels, but you can usually find a spot away from the crowds to relax in solitude. (click to view location and more information.)

Notable spots are:

Governors Beach

Ample parking on hard, sandy surface, excellent snorkelling and a mobility (mobi) mat. Can get busy on weekends or peak tourist season.

Public Beach

Cabanas, children’s playgrounds, toilets, a mobi mat and changing areas.

West Bay Public Beach

Parking, cabanas, toilets, changing facilities, dock, nearby restaurants.

Cemetery Beach

Shaded by trees, with amazing snorkelling and the wreck of the USS Kittiwake.

Smith Barcadere

Also known as Smith’s Cove, this sheltered cove with natural limestone outcrops is a local favourite, with picnic benches, restrooms and showers. There is ample parking across the road and excellent snorkelling attractions. This spot can get busy on weekends and when tourists are on island. Read more about Smith Barcadere.

South Sound Beach

More rustic than Seven Mile Beach, South Sound beach varies throughout the year. Sometimes calm, and sometimes breezy and rough, it is always beautiful and less visited than its Seven Mile sister. Consuelo’s Beach forms part of this stretch and is popular with surfers in rougher weather.

Spotts Beach

On the southern side of the island, Spotts Beach is nestled within ironshore cliffs and its sea grass provides turtles with somewhere safe to munch. Snorkellers can usually spot them early morning or late afternoon.

Beach Bay

A secluded and rocky beach in one of the highest parts of the island. The area is due to become home to large hotel.

Coe Wood Beach

Situated in Bodden Town, this beach is often quiet. The small beach boasts children’s playground and cabanas, restrooms, dock, a mobi mat and nearby Grape Tree Café, which has a delicious fish fry.

Governor Russell Beach

Bodden Town’s Governor Russell Beach offers picnic benches, cabanas and excellent snorkelling.

Heritage Beach

This East End beach has a stage and boat ramp and can turn into a hive of social activity. A fish fry and ample parking make this an easy place to stop. Not a great spot for snorkelling.

Colliers Beach

Also found in East End, this quiet beach offers shallow snorkelling and a relaxed feel with a nearby fish fry, making it a great spot for a picnic.

Bo Miller Beach

This Old May Bay beach is small, breezy, and is the location of a family cemetery.

Rum Point and Cayman Kai

The beaches in this area are quiet with calm waters and include Rum Point’s shallow waters, Starfish Point’s resident starfish (do not take them out of the water), and Cayman Kai Public Beach.

Barker’s Beach

With regular winds and shallow reef-protected waters making Barkers a kitesurfer’s paradise, the rustic sands also play host to horseback riding, dog walking, and a stop on the ATV adventure route. See location of Barkers National Park in Cayman here.
