Grand Cayman is beautiful! I hadn't booked any excursion because I wanted a full beach day. We got on a bus right at the port, took us to 7mile beach/Calico Jacks. I believe it was $8 per person. It was Election Day there which they take very seriously so there was no alcohol served on the island. I'm not a big drinker so I didn't mind too much. We had a coconut milk and some Jerk Chicken from a food truck because Calico Jacks wasn't serving food either. We rented 2 chairs and two umbrellas for $5 each. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white. We played in the water and soaked up the sun most of the day. There were guys renting jet skis, and I saw some paddle boarders as well. We left when some of the local vendors got in a dispute about money and the police showed up. We needed to get back to the Ship anyway. We caught the bus back, really enjoyed our beach day! I would love to visit Grand Cayman again.
This might be my new favorite place on earth!

Loved it. We did a $20 tour of the island which included stops at Hell, The Tortuga Rum Cake Factory, Dolphin Discovery and 7 Mile Beach. We then walked over to Margaritaville and had a blast. **Tip** White Hennessey was $40 at the Rum Cake Factory. Cheapest we've ever seen it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Grand Cayman! We spent the time at seven mile beach and had a wonderful chat with one of the bus drivers who gave us a very detailed history of the island. Have you ever heard the phrase “nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there?” This is one place you would want to live!
Grand Cayman is one of our favorite ports. Beautiful water and some of the best beaches. Lots of great excursions. The whole island has a great feel to it that lets your know you are in the heart of the Caribbean.
Love, love, love love. The submarine ride was great, shopping great. People so nice. While waiting to get back on the ship to go thru customs. My Daughter left her phone on bench. She noticed on way back out to ship. It was found, and they checked the emergency app ran her name against the two ship in port and brought it back out to us. We never reported it, we thought it was gone and was just going to call and have it deactivated. We every time we have been here have noticed the kindness and honestesty of the people whom live here. Too bad other places can't be the same.

Loved Stingray City so much. It was the most amazing thing I've ever done. When my travel partner first told me she wanted to get into water with wild animals that had sting in their name-I thought she was cra-cra. But, I loved it and would highly recommend it for everyone. 🐠🐠
We took a $4 taxi ride to 7 mile beach because we’d heard it’s been classified as the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean. It did not disappoint! Right away there were so many places to rent beach chairs (don’t pay full price - they start at $20, but we got ours for $5 each including the umbrella!) A few places to find souvenirs and eat, but we took a taxi back to the port after our beach fix & did some shopping in town - although beware - prices in town are sky high!
Took a $5 cab ride down to the public beach. One of the best beaches I’ve visited. Paid a local $15 for a beach chair. He advised us that we didn’t have to utilize the bar if we chose not to, just let him know what we wanted and he would make a trip to the local liquor store for a small fee. He told us where we can find the best food. He checked up on us every 30-45 minutes to make sure we were doing well. I know tourism is how they make a living so I’m always willing to support someone looking to make a honest living.
