The beaches on Little Cayman are often described as having the appeal of Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman without the crowds and development.  Soft sands, calm waters, and a deserted island feel is the appeal of the shores on this tiny island. 

The Area's Beaches

You'll discover several beaches to consider visiting on the island. If you are hoping to enjoy some peace and quiet, you are likely to be rewarded, since several of the beaches are relatively secluded and free from development. Simply click on specific names for a detailed article concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Owen Island: This island is not far off Little Cayman's coast, so to get here you could rent a sea kayak and paddle right out to it.

A second alternative that beach-goers can consider is West End Point Beach. A resort dominates this area, but does not bar public access so much as discourages it. You can easily walk from the road to the coast, though.

Charles Bight Beach: It's easy to get here if you're already on the tiny Little Cayman island,its on the east end. Otherwise you need a boat to get to this island.

The table just below summarizes a few details regarding the beaches available on the island.
