Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill

Cayman Kai | (345) 947-9975

Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill is at 585 Water Cay Road. In case you're wondering, Bodden Town is five and a half miles (eight and a half kilometers) to the south. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for Caribbean delights and particularly barbecue, but it's also fawned-over for another favorite, hamburgers.

Originally erected in the 1970s to serve drinks to cruise ship passengers as they stopped to tour the area, Kaibo has expanded from a little shack to an almost elegant bar and grill while still retaining the unpretentious feel it began with. Waterfront dining on the patio is key to the great vibe they have. Stop by Tuesdays nights for live, local music.
