It is fun to watch cruise ships come and go as the sun sets, and then just sit down and look at the stars. A pristine beach that is truly a tropical paradise.

The best public beach I have seen! The sand is great, not to many rocks or shells, there are some spots with coral and rocks closer to the port end of the beach and many people brought their own snorkeling equipment to check out some of the coves. There are private homes and hotels along the beach but unlike others, they have not sectioned off portions for themselves so you can walk from end to end. It is best to get near the hotels, but the closer you get to the hotels the more crowded it gets as well. From the port it is walkable, just hang a left on the main road (church street) and start walking, it took about 35 minutes to walk to a suitable place to layout, we were by the Quality Suites hotel, the closest one to the port.
There were places to rent snorkeling equipment, jet skis, and other water sports places all along the walk and down the beach as well. The hotel bars and restaurants were all accessible from the beach to get something to eat. One of the strangest things were noticed was that many of the people working at the hotels and restaurants were Canadian, not many Cayman natives or British (as the island is British). Overall at great place to relax for a few hours if you don't want to spend money or do any shore excursions, and you get the great Caribbean beach views and bright blue water.

The water was clear turquoise and a perfect temperature, and the beach had nice white sand with a gentle slope into the water, so small children could play safely. If you had your snorkel gear, you would likely see a few fish and a bit of coral.

We did find a nice shop in the south part of Georgetown called Pure Art. This little house has been converted to a shop selling local art from Cayman Island residents and other nearby Caribbean islands. It’s a very quaint shop with LOTS of little treasures.
Also, just south of Georgetown on our way back to the East Side, we found a small deserted beach with dock near the Queen's Monument in the South Sound (just south of the airport).
