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

You will find several beaches to enjoy on the island. Regardless of whether you prefer being around other people, or you enjoy relaxing in a secluded area, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. Just click on each beach name for a detailed review of that part of the coast.

If you enjoy snorkeling, a place worth considering 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 place that beach-goers can 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.

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.

Of course, you will find a full range of beaches on the island. To get more information about this topic, visit this article.
