Cemetery Beach and Reef, Grand Cayman

4.4
Head off the beaten track and find relaxation and activity in equal measure at Cemetery Beach and Reef. The reef lies 27 m (89 ft) from shore and, because the beach hasn't been developed for tourism, it remains largely unspoiled. See schools of colorful tropical fish swimming around the interesting coral formations. Back on dry land, the beach has a good amount of shade from native plant life, meaning you'll be able to cool off after a long snorkeling trip. Bring your own food and drink, as you won't find any amenities onsite. Add Cemetery Beach and Reef and other attractions to your West Bay trip itinerary using our West Bay online vacation planner .

  • Small parking lot across the street and path on the right side of the cemetery to access the beach. From there you must swim 100 yards and there are some great groups of rocks with lots of fish.  more »
