The Beaches: All beaches up to the water mark are public in Cayman; including the beautiful stretches of Seven Mile Beach. Look for the “Beach Access” signs and follow the footpaths to some hidden gems.
Seven Mile Beach is one of the top most beautiful beaches in the world. It’s known for its soft white sands and crystal clear waters. It’s a great place to spend a few hours or an entire day. Load the car with beach towels and sunscreen before heading out to choose your very own patch of powdery white sand on Grand Cayman’s most famous stretch of land. With seven miles of uninterrupted beach to choose from, the sand is never terribly crowded and it is easy to find roadside parking even during high season. There are also a number of gravel and paved parking areas at different points along West Bay Road that can be used all day long for free.
Some of our favourite areas along SMB:
Boggy Sand Beach is at the northern most point of SMB. Our private beach access is located directly across the gravel road and less than 30 feet from our front gate. The beach area here is quiet and free from crowds. The snorkeling and sunsets are superb.
Cemetery Beach is also located at the northern end of SMB, just south of Boggy Sand Road. The designated public beach access is located on West Bay Road right beside the Cemetery. There is usually plenty of parking along West Bay Road. Or you can choose to walk from our beach access with less than a 5 minute walk. Cemetery Beach is known for its shady area and snorkeling.
Governor’s Beach is located just north of the Governor’s residence on West Bay Road, along the SMB corridor just 3 miles fromWindsong. This beach is very popular with locals and tourists alike because there is plenty of parking and a wide stretch of white sand. It can get crowded but is worth a visit.
Grand Cayman has many great, unique beaches worth visiting and we have only mentioned a few. Some other popular beach areas are Smith’s Cove, Surfer’s Beach, Colliers Beach / East End, Kaibo, Cayman Kai, Coe Wood (Bodden Town) and Prospect Point. All beaches in Cayman are public up to the high water mark so enjoy.
