No trip to Grand Cayman is complete without a visit to Starfish Point.
Located on the quiet, north side of Grand Cayman, the shallow, azure waters off the beach are beautifully calm, allowing dozens of vibrant sea stars to bask in the sunlight. The most common species found at Starfish Point is the Red Cushion Sea Star (Oreaster reticulatus), known for its warm hues of red, orange, and yellow.
The beach offers a stunning location for a refreshing swim, and because the waters are mostly about knee-high, there is no need to bring snorkelling gear, though you can if you want a closer look at the local sea life. Please remember Sea stars are protected under Cayman law, and taking them out of the water is illegal as it will harm or even kill them.
This stunning, isolated sandbar is located 2.4 miles from famous Rum Point, making it a good day trip to hit both beach attractions for family-friendly adventures.
With palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze, and soft sand tickling your bare feet, this is truly a Caribbean paradise.
