Grand Cayman Beach Villas

After a much-anticipated wait, the Cayman Islands have announced they are re-opening borders to international travel on November 20, 2021.

As part of the nation’s five-stage plan, November 20 marks the fourth stage where international visitors travellers aged 12 and older will be welcomed back without the requirement of quarantine if they are verified to be fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated travellers will still need to quarantine for 14 days, and unverified vaccinated travellers will need to quarantine for ten days. For more information about the stage four opening, please visit www.exploregov.ky/reopening-plan

Since the announcement, it has been exciting to see the level of enthusiasm for travel, and as a result, the winter season is booking up very quickly.

We know that many of you look forward to returning to the Villas of Galleon each year, so we wanted to reach out as if you’re considering a winter getaway, it would be best to secure your dates soon.

Fabulous Five: Best Things to do in Grand Cayman

Villas on Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman - beach

1. Seven Mile Beach

Seven Mile Beach is a top attraction not only in Grand Cayman but in the world. With its 5.6 mile stretch of coral white-sand and crystal-clear turquoise water, it’s an absolute paradise. Find a secluded spot to bathe in the sun or take part in the many activities.

2. Rum Point

Rum Point got its name after a supposed shipwreck that spilled barrels of rum off the shore and is famous for the invention of the Mudslide cocktail at Wrack beach bar. Rum point, despite its name, is very family-friendly. Rum point has white sand beaches and shallow calm water, making it perfect for snorkeling around the barrier reef.

3. Stingray City

The world-famous Stingray City Sandbar is just a 15-minute boat ride from Rum Point. Swim with stingrays is one of the most popular excursions in Grand Cayman. The stingrays are comfortable around humans and don’t be surprised if they swim up against you.

4. Snorkeling

With so many beaches and snorkeling destinations in Grand Cayman, you could snorkel at a new place every day of the week. The range of biodiversity and its crystal-clear waters makes it easy to see coral reefs, tropical fish, stingrays, turtles, shipwrecks, and much more.

5. Diving

Diving in Grand Cayman is one of the biggest draws to the islands. For the beginner diver, check out Ex USS Kittiwake. A shipwreck that has been cut open for a safe and easy dive. For a more challenging dive, check out the North Wall, with over 1800 meters/6000 feet of coral to explore.

Our Top Five Beach Recommendations on Grand Cayman

Villas on Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman - top 5

The Cayman Islands are known for their pure white sand beaches surrounded by coral reefs and best of all, all beaches are accessible to the public for free. Here are the top five beaches to visit

1. Seven-mile Beach consistently ranks as one of the best beaches in the world. Despite its name, its real length is 5.6 miles long. The seven-mile beach is special because it possesses soft white sand, warm crystal-clear turquoise water, and is close to coral reefs. There are tons of beach and water activities to partake in. It’s the perfect place to do, well – whatever your heart desires.

2. Starfish Point Beach got its name because this is where you will find colorful Starfish speckled along the shallow waters of the beach. Just walk out in the shallow water and you will find Starfish just below the surface. You can even touch them but be very gentle and careful not to remove them from the water. Bring Snorkeling gear if you want to go out a little further to see even more Starfish.

3. Rum Point is perfect for families with children. The shallow water and calm waters provide an oasis for swimming and snorkeling. With its white sand and many places to relax with a cocktail or smoothie to soak up the sun, it doesn’t get more picture-perfect than this.

4. Smiths Cove is a popular beach to relax and watch the sunset. The beach is on the south end of Grand Cayman Island and has the same soft white sand you would expect in the Caymans. The landscape has beautiful rock structures, making this a photographer’s dream. It is also a popular place to snorkel off the shore with lots of coral and tropical fish.

5. Barefoot Beach is for those who want to find a lesser-known secret beach. It’s on the northeast side of Grand Cayman – far away from tourist attractions. You will most likely have the beach to yourself. Expect to find it a little on the wild side with seaweed and driftwood washed ashore. On a calm day it’s a great spot to suntan, take a dip in the water or end the day with a beach barbeque.
