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.

Smith's Cove

Seven Mile Beach: On the west coast of Grand Cayman, Seven Mile Beach is actually five and a half miles of powdery white sand lined with palms and Australian pines.

Another place worth considering 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: Cemetary Beach has very shallow and warm waters that sparkle blue and green in marvelous contrast to the white sands ashore.
