This North Sound beach has hammocks slung in towering casuarina trees, picnic tables, casual and "fancier" dining options, a well-stocked shop for seaworthy sundries, and Red Sail Sports, which offers various water sports and boats to explore Stingray City. The barrier reef ensures safe snorkeling and soft sand. The bottom remains shallow for a long way from shore, but it's littered with small coral heads, so be careful. The Wreck is an ultracasual hangout serving outstanding pub grub from fish-and-chips to wings, as well as lethal Mudslide cocktails. Just around the bend, another quintessential beach hangout, Kaibo, rocks during the day. Amenities : food and drink; parking (no fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for : partiers; snorkeling.
Rum Point, North Side, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
May 31, 2009
Made it to Rum Point as part of a sting ray city excursion through red sail sports. Beach was beautiful, but very crowded, and that's without a cruise ship in port. There were lots of beach chairs available, as well as picnic tables and hammocks. Also a couple volleyball nets available. Cute little snack shop right on the beach with tasty basic meals available, and really good frozen cocktails. I wasn't able to venture much of the beach, but
if you get there by car, I would recommend also driving down to Cayman Kai for their beach and restaurant.
