Cemetery Beach and Reef, Grand Cayman

4.4
#5 of 15 in Beaches in Cayman Islands
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.
