When most people think of vacationing in the Cayman Islands, it is Grand Cayman that they are thinking of.  This, the largest and most populous of the chain, is constantly overrun with tourists in search of their dream Caribbean vacation.  The island is so diverse that it is in fact possible that everyone who visits can find a place to call their own, whether it is local culture they hope to learn about, or natural scenery to submerge themselves in. 


Rum Point

There are a large number of beaches to visit on the island. Regardless of whether you prefer people watching, or you prefer a more secluded spot, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. Just click on the name of each beach for more information concerning that beach.

A location where snorkeling is an option is Rum Point. Rum Point is the northeastern tip of Grand Cayman and the access road is called Rum Point Drive. You should have no trouble finding somewhere to park so you can meander around this beach locale.

Another option that beach-goers can consider is The Blowholes. The beach is tan, with seaweed and vegetation sprawled out on the sand. There is no development here and there's likely to be no one around.

Water Cay: Water Cay is often accessed by boat, docking along the sandbar. You can also drive here easily, up Rum Point Drive, then left at Water Cay Road.
