Pirates are a big deal in Bodden Town where a graveyard said to hold the remains of a few known pirates and a natural cave which is set up to appear as though it is a hiding spot for the famed thieves are popular attractions.   Beaches, nature preserves, and a few other historic sites are worth a look as well.  


Cayman Kai

You will find an abundance of beaches to consider in and around the area. You can click on each beach name for more detail concerning that section of the coast.

Meagre Bay Beach: This beach offers little shade, but a wide expanse of sand and calm sea. This a very clean and quiet beach.

A second place that beach-goers can consider is Spotts Bay. Centrally located on Grand Cayman's south shore, this beach is not as picturesque as most of the island's pristine beaches. It's rocky and wide, with no shade around.

Frank Sound Beach: You'll find this beach in southeast Grand Cayman at the intersection of Bodden Town Road and aptly named Frank Sound Road. Head east past the intersection a little ways and park along the road.
