Tucked away, on the quiet north side of Grand Cayman Island, Rum Point was named for the barrels of its namesake liquor that would frequently wash up on its beaches according to local legend. Rum Point is also famous for its soft, white sandy beaches, and crystal clear shallow and warm water making it the perfect destination for families.
The beach hammocks, shady trees, picnic tables, and delicious food attracts visitors, and its amenities include change rooms, showers, huts, hammocks, volleyball nets, and more. Daily trips to the Stingray Sandbar leave from Rum Point dock and beach watersports are provided by Red Sail Sports.
As lunchtime rolls around, stop by the Wreck Bar and Grill and feast on favorites such as Caybrew fish and chips and traditional Jerk Pork, loved by locals as well. After the sun sets dine under the stars at Rum Point Club Restaurant and try the Caribbean-inspired delights such as the Trio of Ceviche or Seafood Hot-Pot. Finish the evening off with a famous “Mud-Slide” cocktail invented right at Rum Point.
About 45 minutes by car from Villas of the Galleon, Rum Point is well worth the day trip. If you’re looking for a family-friendly or couples excursion, picturesque Rum Point needs to be on your list.
