This beach is named after the popular Turtle Farm attraction, which is close by. Although the beach is not particularly picturesque, a lot of visitors come here for the snorkeling.
Positioned in the western outskirts of West Bay, Turtle Farm Beach is on the West coast of Grand Cayman. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying in the immediate vicinity. Peace and quiet is what you'll find at the majority of the Cayman Islands' beaches, but the ambiance at Turtle Farm Beach is one of both seclusion and activity; this means you can relax without having to be too far removed from the city's activity.
This is in a very popular area of Grand Cayman, almost the northernmost point of the island. The area is best known for the Turtle Farm next door, so look for signage for that attraction as you head North from George Town.
A jagged, rocky coastline, I wouldn't prepare to lay out in the sand if you come here. Instead, bring your snorkel and fins.
Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
This pleasant stretch of sand known as Turtle Farm Beach is on the West coast of Grand Cayman. It is near Dolphin Cove, which is one of a number of attractions in the vicinity.
