Most people book a stay in Seven Mile Beach with the knowledge that they can pretty much walk from one place to the next, allowing them to avoid renting a car and requiring only taxi service on occasion. The public bus system, however, has a route that travels along the strip, which means those who previously resigned themselves to staying in the area will be able to do some exploring.
There are just under 40 minibuses operating on four routes around Grand Cayman. They begin in the bus terminal in Georgetown, then make stops along the way to various points around the island including Bodden Town, East Side, North Side, and West Bay. The route that travels through Seven Mile Beach is the Yellow Line, but if you head to the Georgetown terminal you'll be able to hop on any of the other lines to explore other locations. Costs range from $1.25(USD) to $5(USD).
The buses run every day of the week spare Sunday from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. And carry up to 12 passengers at one time. If the bus is full it will not stop to pack in more passengers, but you are able to wave them down on the street rather than sticking only to designated bus stops.
|Route||Beginning||Stops Along the Route||End|
|Yellow Line to West End||George Town Bus Terminal||Fort George Bus Stop, Cayman Club Bus Stop, Seven Mile Beach Bus Stop, Turtle Farm Bus Stop||Batabano Bus Stop|
The public bus system is a great alternative to expensive taxi rides and renting a car when you may not need one for your whole stay. They are generally reliable and a fun way to experience life like a local – what's not to love?
