Do not do the Great Gatsby Beach. One giant rock. Only place you can swim is off the pier and the bottom is one giant rock. Didn't dare venture too far from dock because the water was so rough and the tide would pull you out. My wive doesn't swim but likes to be in the water. All she could do was just stand at the pier and hold on. Bar service people lie. Asked how much a local beer was. Bubba said $8.00. When he came back the the beer it was magically $9.00 and nobody has any change. Seems funny that you want to run a cash bar but nobody ever has any change. Read Less

We hopped on a bus to the Calico Jack's/Public Beach section of Seven Mile Beach. $6 per person each way. This is without a doubt the best beach I have ever seen. The sand is soft and powdery, and the water is unbelievably blue and clear. We along with everyone else there just stood in the water and bounced, taking in the sheer beauty of this island. We took a walk away from the crowd a bit and it got even better. Absolutely loved this place. Read Less

Rum Point Beach - Stopped for lunch. Great food, but services was really slow in getting our food. We ordered the catch of the day - Mahi Mahi. Excellent. Beach was partial roped off for a private function and there were no chairs available. Swimming area not great as mostly coral and grasses. I would stop and have lunch here, but not spend much time on the beach. Read Less

Royal Palms beach Was beautiful. The only issue was the pool was for 18+ only so my kids couldn’t go to the pool and the water was a bit rough that day.

Our ,next stop was Seven Mile Beach which had the beach, snack bar and a beautiful pool. Again not good for handicap to walk. We had a lounge reserved on beach for us and were able to get into water. Unfortunately, found very difficult time trying to get into water. If you wanted rent an umbrella, it was $15. We used ours and then gave it to some ladies to have. Had to return to lounge while husband in water. This was fine with me. My husband and I then went up and enjoyed the pool for the remainder of the stop here. I must say anyone without mobility issues would have a great time here swimming, jet skis, etc. and snack bar. I did enjoy this excursion very much even with mobility issues. Read Less

Put my girls into a taxi and sent them off to explore Seven Mile Beach while I checked on my money at UBS, shopped for a watch and walked around downtown. I didn't find anything worth buying for my daughter's birthday present. I wasn't hungry, so I didn't bother sampling any of the food which I'd done before. I saw a traffic cop perform. Wonderful. Once you've been to Grand Cayman and you check out the Turtle Kraals, Stingray City and you go to Hell, that's all, folks. You're not a diver, you're bored. The beach has nice sand. Read Less
