  • Beautiful Beach.. We walked along the shore line enjoying the calm waves. The water was calm and warmed as soon as you got use to it. The sand was semi soft but I would still wear beach shoes.

  • Took the local bus from George Town to West Bay Beach. Nice uncrowded beach, had restrooms. My husband and daughter were able to do some snorkeling.

  • This western part of Grand Cayman is not so crowded with tourists as Seven Mile Beach and southern part. It is nice place to live by the sea and due to wonderful climate you can swim whole year round, only potential problem being now and then some hurricane if coming to close to the island during season. Iguanas are all around and not afraid at all so many are killed by cars. Sunsets are amazing. On the pictures can bee seen beach in front of the apartment we were living for almost two years. Each day I will be swimming and snorkeling amazed by the beauty and abundance of the sea life. There was small coral reef very near and I was visiting my pet lobster as well as many rays and school of fish. I was swimming by the shore very far and once I met very big turtle. She surprised me coming from behind and for the moment I was not sure if she is something more dangerous but she just looked at me and went for the surface. I also met many divers. It was real pleasure I will recommend to anybody visiting Caymans.
  • West Bay Beach is a very nice beach to relax and practice water sports. The place is clean surrounded by restaurants and easy to find. Has a deck for good pictures and spot the beautiful sun set or the full moon (West Bay dock), has it own parking lot where you can find locals selling fresh fish or local food like bbq chicken of local fruits. The beach has trees that make a good shade for a nice nap by the beach. If you like water sport you can perform snorkeling here and find many different species underwater like squids, sargent mayors, shrimps and crabs or just a simple swim in the area surrounded by a beautiful and shallow turkish blue ocean. There is no lifeguard on the area so be careful how far you go swimming from the shore and careful with the animals underwater (stepping on stingrays or hitting a coral). Bring sunblock, towel, hat or cap and snacks to enjoy a great day.
