Rode bikes from the Kimpton, snorkeling was some of the best we have done including in the bvi's, saw a turtle, a ray and really could have made the swim to the wreck if we wanted to. Really perfect!

This was our least favorite beach in Grand Cayman. Tons of huge rocks and boulders make for very difficult entry into the ocean. Once in the ocean it is also very rough on the floor. Tons of debris/plant on the sand and you have to...More

Yes, in the daytime. I would pack snacks and water, as there are no facilities there. It is a very peaceful and relaxing spot to swim and snorkel. Do not stay past dusk.
