West End Point Beach

A more secluded spot on the west end of Cayman Brac, this beach has a long stretch of soft, white sand and shallow waters along the shore for lazy wading in the warm Caribbean.

Situated on the island of Little Cayman, 1.6 miles west of Blossom Village, You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. West End Point Beach stands out from other beaches because it's one of the best spots for getting away from vacation stresses, like overly crowded restaurants and attractions. Most other beaches in the Cayman Islands offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but are usually more crowded because they're lined with some of the most famous hotels and restaurants.

How to Access The 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.

Amenities and Ambiance

This beach does not offer much shade, as most of the trees are far from the coastline. The ocean floor is clear and shallow.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

If you choose coasts that offer a peaceful experience, then think about trying out West End Point Beach; it's tucked away in a more rural sector of the region.
