Grand Cayman, the largest of the three Cayman Islands, offers a perfect escape from your routine. It is among the most popular destinations in the western Caribbean, and its scenic beaches provide a haven for those seeking peace and serenity. One of these is the beach at Rum Point, where you can enjoy a variety of activities, ranging from leisurely walks (or time in a hammock!) to water sports.
Visiting Rum Point is one of the top things to do in the Cayman Islands. Tourists love its out-of-the-way beauty and calm swimming cove, and locals enjoy it as a quiet weekend retreat. Here are three features of Rum Point that make it popular with vacationers from all over the world:
Rum Point offers a calm, clear swimming cove in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, on the North coast of Grand Cayman. The area is perfect for families, as the protected swimming area is small enough to keep an eye on the kids and still large enough to never feel crowded. An added plus: large Casuarina trees provide lots of shady areas on the beach, and hammocks are available for a truly relaxing beach experience.
When you’re ready for more activity, there are plenty to enjoy at Rum Point. The beach has volleyball nets, and you can choose to swim, go snorkeling or rent a sailboat or a wave-runner.
Rum Point is an ideal place to walk barefoot, dig your toes in the white sand and enjoy all the amenities. Rum Point has a restaurant and beach bar that offer island-favourite food and beverages, souvenir shops, and changing rooms and showers. Everything you need is right there on the secluded beach for added convenience.
