Fodor's Review

Grand Cayman's west coast is dominated by the famous Seven Mile Beach—actually a 6½-mi-long (10-km-long) expanse of powdery white sand overseeing lapis water stippled with a rainbow of parasails and kayaks. Free of litter and pesky peddlers, it's an unspoiled (though often crowded) environment. Most of the island's resorts, restaurants, and shopping centers sit along this strip. The public beach toward the north end offers chairs for rent ($10 for the day, including

a beverage), a playground, water toys aplenty, beach bars, restrooms, and showers. The best snorkeling is at either end, by the Marriott and Treasure Island or off the northern section called Cemetery Reef Beach. Amenities : Food and drink, parking, showers, toilets, water sports. Best for : Partiers, snorkeling.

great for snorkeling!

Fodor's review mwntions that the beach narrows south of the Marriott. However, that is wher the best offshore snorkeling starts in the area. We always start just south of the Marriott, and swim to the shipwreck. It is a great area for those hwo prefer shallow water snorkeling. There are an abundance of squid, rays and parrot fish. There was extreme damage to the reefs from the Marriott on North from the Hurricane, but this area has active growth.

The artificial reefs at the Marriott still need some time to develop.

first experience in the tropics as a child

This is the beach I first saw as a twelve year old and fell in love with. This is the beach that I measure all other tropical beaches against and it still remains #1.
