Beaches in Georgetown

Georgetown is home to one of the most famous beaches not only in the Cayman Islands but the whole of the Caribbean:  Seven Mile Beach.  A straight stretch of soft white sand that is fast becoming over-developed, more people will choose to at least make a stop to see what all the fuss is about.  But outside of this area, there are several other sandy shores that should not be overlooked. 

The Area's Beaches

There are a large number of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. For more information concerning a single beach just click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

Smith's Cove

Seven Mile Beach: Miles north of George Town, this beach is one of the most popular destinations on the island. There are no public access issues.

A second place to 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.

Cemetery Beach: The waters are calm for swimming and wading and this beach is usually active, populated by guests of nearby accommodations. Most of the beach has resorts and villas on the inland edge, not native flora, so the beach offers little shade.

Be sure to look through the chart below for more information about your options.
