One beach where snorkeling is popular is Rum Point. On the north coast of Grand Cayman, facing Cuba, lies bustling Rum Point. Here, flat white sands backed by shade trees lead down to the calm blue sea.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is The Blowholes. The blowholes is a thin stretch of beach on Grand Cayman's less popular south shore. If you're looking for a beach trip with a more culturally distinct island experience, head to the more urban beaches near George Town.
