Stretching along the west coast of Grand Cayman, the Seven Mile Beach Resort area is so much more than the beach – which is itself truly a sight to behold.  Nearby, there are numerous attractions that tourists should absolutely make plans to explore, including a turtle farm, a military fort, and an art gallery.


Grand Cayman's Seven Mile Beach

You will discover an abundance of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Just click on each beach name for detailed information about that beach.

Seven Mile Beach: Seven Mile Beach is one of the largest and most popular beaches on Grand Cayman. Visitors can engage in all sorts of water sports but swimming and snorkeling are the favorites in these calm waters.

Another option that beach-goers can consider is Cemetery Beach. A paved road is adjacent to the beach and this is a popular spot of Grand Cayman so finding your way here will not be difficult. Some problems may arise in trying to find public access to this beach as one resort after another blocks public access.

Barkers National Park Beach: Perfect for nature enthusiasts, Barkers National Park Beach is a pristine stretch of white sand that meets crystal clear shallow waters for miles down an empty stretch of coastline. The further you go down into the park, the cleaner and more isolated the surroundings will feel.

Landmark Attractions

Fort George

A common landmark for vacationers is National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. It is located in southern Seven Mile Beach. The permanent collection of the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands is housed on the second floor and features important pieces of Cayman artwork that has been growing since the inception of the National Gallery. Additionally, the gallery tries to host at least six rotating exhibits each year.

Another landmark that often intrigues visitors is Fort George. It is found within downtown Georgetown, 2.6 mi. South of central Seven Mile Beach. Although landlocked and mostly in ruins, Fort George stands as an important historical landmark that tells the tale of a Cayman Islands once protected from this very spot by the local militia. The fort was built by locals using limestone and coral, though nobody can be sure exactly when, and after many years of little to no use, it was handed over to the National Trust.

Cayman Islands National Museum: Cayman Island's National Museum is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
