Quite a few travelers make plans to spend their holidays on Grand Cayman in anticipation of seeing the incredible beaches that the islands are so well known for.
If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, The Avalon is the perfect locale for you. This site is located on the shore, so visitors can spend all day every day under the sun if that will make them happy.
Naturally, since The Avalon was built directly on Seven Mile Beach, relaxing on the sand is a popular pastime at this property. 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.
