Cemetery Beach

The waters are calm for swimming and wading and this beach is usually active, populated by guests of nearby accommodations. Most of the beach has resorts and villas on the inland edge, not native flora, so the beach offers little shade.

Located near the heart of West Bay, Cemetery Beach is on the West edge of Grand Cayman. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. While the Cayman Islands has beaches that are more secluded than Cemetery Beach, it retains the right amount of intimacy and natural beauty to attract beachgoers.

How to Access The 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. There are spots you may be able to walk to the beach from nearby parking for restaurants and shops.

Amenities and Ambiance

Cemetary Beach has very shallow and warm waters that sparkle blue and green in marvelous contrast to the white sands ashore.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Since Cemetery Beach is found inside a major tourist area, you might need to hunt to get a spot!

Other Beaches

Cemetery Beach isn't the only beach worth checking out on Grand Cayman.

If the vibrant atmosphere of Cemetery Beach is what you're looking for, think about checking out Barkers National Park Beach, a spot with the same type of electricity. It is located two miles to the northeast. If it's solitude and tranquility you're seeking, Seven Mile Beach is a beach removed from some more heavily-traveled spots. You'll find it only a short distance away.

Another sun-drenched spot to consider is Boatswain's Beach, which is located a mile and a half to the northwest.

The Cayman Islands has a lot to offer its visitors, but Cemetery Beach is both a relaxing, sunny hangout and a stunning natural feature.
