Smith Cove, Grand Cayman

4.5
Relax at Smith Cove. Slightly off the beaten path, uncrowded, and with plenty of shade, the cove's calm blue waters framed by rocks offer the perfect spot for a swim. Remember to bring along your snorkeling gear, as there is also plenty to see underneath the surface. An abundance of trees near the coast offer refuge from the sun, so set up your picnic gear under the shade. Amenities include a shower and bathroom with fresh water, but you won't find any food vendors near the cove. For travelers who use our international travel planner, George Town holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Smith Cove and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
