Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Islands
Pick your own spot to sunbathe on the soft powder-white sands of this gorgeous 9km-long beach that fringes the west coast of Grand Cayman Island, from George Town to Long Point.
Edged by shady palms, casuarinas and pine trees, Seven Mile Beach is lapped by calm, crystal clear turquoise waters that offer ideal conditions for swimming, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, windsurfing and snorkelling.
Also known as West Bay Beach, Seven Mile Beach is generally rated as one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean. Facilities including umbrellas, sun loungers and a wide range water sports equipment for hire. A varied selection of upmarket resorts, beach bars, restaurants and shops stretch along the beachfront, which widens and narrows with the seasons.
For the best snorkelling on the beach, head to Cemetery Reef at the beach's northern end, where you can also find a dedicated public section with toilets, showers, a children’s playground, a volleyball court and two beach bars.
Seven Mile Beach starts just north of George Town, around 7km northwest of the airport.
Come for a day or stay longer at your choice of accommodation, including: the elegant Westin Casuarina Resort, set within landscaped gardens; the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, the largest and most prestigious resort in the Cayman Islands; or the family friendly 5-star Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort, located just a short swim from one of the island’s prime snorkelling spots.
