Spotts Bay

Though the waters are crystal clear and the shoreline is fairly isolated here, this beach is not very popular with tourists.

Set in Savannah, Spotts Bay is on the South West coast of Grand Cayman. You should think about stopping by even if you are not staying very close. It's often said that Spotts Bay is perfect for escaping the hustle of the Cayman Islands' urban areas. Other nearby beaches in the Cayman Islands may be just as refreshing as Spotts Bay, but are usually busier since they're found in the most popular parts of town.

How to Access The Beach

Access is not a problem here. You'll find this wide expanse of shoreline adjacent to Sandy Ground Drive and if you'd like to stay and check it out, just park along the road.

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.

Enjoy the use of picnic tables——a perk even for those who don't want to dine here.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

Spotts Bay's location is rarely very crowded, Because of this, it doesn't matter the part of the day you arrive, as there is only a small possibility you have to handle possible other guests who will also want access to the amenities that are there.
