Simply put, there is no such beach anywhere in the world as Seven Mile Beach. Located on the west coast of Grand Cayman, stretching from the West Bay to the capital George Town, this pristine crescent of white sand is one of the main reasons why people visit the Cayman Islands. Thanks to its beauty, it received the award as the 4th best beach in the Caribbean Trip Advisor, one of the best beaches in the Caribbean Travel + Life region and the 12th best beach in the world by MSN.
Beach access is via the West Bay Road between hotels and apartments. These public trails are marked with brown and white beach access signs. There are also a number of public beaches, such as Governor’s Beach and Seven Mile Public Beach, which offer parking and toilets. Visitors to the beach can, if they wish, walk the entire length of Seven Mile Beach, as everything down to the high water mark is public.
Seven Mile Beach offers many water sports, including snorkelling, paddling, parasailing, diving, water skiing and jet skiing. You can find water sports in most major hotels. If you have your own snorkeling equipment, head to Governor’s Beach or Cemetery Reef at the northern end of the Seven Mile, where beautiful coral reefs await you just a few dozen meters from the coast.
Whether you’re in a hotel or an apartment, or just enjoying a day at one of the public beaches on the Seven Mile, be sure to stick to the breathtaking sunsets. This west-facing beach will never disappoint and will definitely bring a new masterpiece every night.
