Cayman's Seven Mile Beach
This is by far the most popular beach in the Cayman Islands, and it's even a top beach destination for the Caribbean as a whole.
Seven miles of powdered sugar sand are a big draw, as are turquoise waters that are home to coral reefs within snorkeling distance. This beach stretches just above George Town, up the west coast of Grand Cayman to the West Bay, and has a wide variety of water-sports and activities available, ranging from jet skiing to volleyball.
This is also where all the main resorts and hotels are on the island. Most resorts offer day passes to non-guests.
