Amenities and Ambiance

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.

If you're thinking about eating lunch here, consider that their picnic tables make it even easier.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

A lesser known beach, Spotts Bay with its amenities and services are sure to be a hit for visitors hoping to escape all the other tourists, since it happens to be located within a calm area. What this means is that don't fret about what time you arrive, since there's a pretty small chance you be required to deal with the hassle of possible other visitors who will also want access to the amenities and services that can be located here.
