"This western part of Grand Cayman is not so crowded with tourists as Seven Mile Beach and southern part. It is nice place to live by the sea and due to wonderful climate you can swim whole year round, only potential problem being now and then some hurricane if coming to close to the island during season. Iguanas are all around and not afraid at all so many are killed by car..."

"A beautiful beach that is further away from the bulk of tourists that flock towards seven mile beach closer to the cruise terminal. So if you have time, jump on a taxi for $2.5 and get over here. There is a long stretch of white sand with very little people. The only people we saw were a few locals and some scuba divers heading out to sea. Definitely recommend this beach."
