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.

Seven Mile Beach is probably the most convenient option to visit near the villa complex. 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.

If instead you're looking for an enjoyable secluded beach, Barkers National Park Beach might be just right for you. The shoreline on this long, clean beach is bordered by mangroves and greenery. During the week, there are very few visitors so if you like isolated beach experiences, this is the spot for you. You can find it just a small interval off.
