There are numerous wonderful beaches in the Cayman Islands. While all can guarantee soft white sand, pristine turquoise waters and a cool Caribbean breeze, check out our guide below to find the ideal beach for you.
Rum Point Club Restaurant serves a variety of food and cold drinks - our suggestion is to try their mudslides! They are open Tuesday to Sunday from 11am until 30 minutes before the sunset. For those looking to explore, the water is sheltered by the barrier reef and the coast, which makes it ideal for children. It also boasts fantastic snorkelling as far as the Northern-most tip of the point. At this popular location you might see starfish, needle fish, turtles, and all kinds of marine life.
Just beyond Kaibo in North Side is Starfish Point, a nice quiet spot for a picnic or paddle. It is shaded by casuarina trees, has a wide shallow area close to the shore and large starfish can often be found just a few feet off the shore. Starfish are safe to hold, but do not lift or take them out of the water – it will kill them!
You will see signs posted on the land clearly describing fines for mishandling the starfish, if you are caught.
You can get to Starfish Point by boat or by car – it is about an hour’s drive from George Town. Follow signs to Kaibo Restaurant and it’s a few minutes past there. There is a car park plus showers and restrooms.
Just before you arrive at Rum Point Club, you will find this north-facing public beach. A rustic white sandy beach interspersed with rocky areas, Cayman Kai Public Beach has a cabana, simple restroom facilities and a small car park.
This secluded and exclusive enclave of pristine beaches and holiday homes is one of the most sought after locations in Grand Cayman. Be sure to bring your mask and snorkel, as the snorkelling here is excellent!
