We went to 7 mile beach...but not the original area we were booked. This caused some issues for some of the guests with mobility problems as there was a seawall that had to be crossed. The step going up was a cement block. Luckily staff there to help some of the guests make their way. Lovely water, body surfing the waves. Lovely little restaurant and museum across the road.

Be careful, we were told the beach included chairs, and umbrella with our cab charge. It did not. Other folks from our ship also had the same experience. So beware and ask the right questions.

Our ,next stop was Seven Mile Beach which had the beach, snack bar and a beautiful pool. Again not good for handicap to walk. We had a lounge reserved on beach for us and were able to get into water. Unfortunately, found very difficult time trying to get into water. If you wanted rent an umbrella, it was $15. We used ours and then gave it to some ladies to have. Had to return to lounge while husband in water. This was fine with me. My husband and I then went up and enjoyed the pool for the remainder of the stop here. I must say anyone without mobility issues would have a great time here swimming, jet skis, etc. and snack bar. I did enjoy this excursion very much even with mobility issues. Read Less

Put my girls into a taxi and sent them off to explore Seven Mile Beach while I checked on my money at UBS, shopped for a watch and walked around downtown. I didn't find anything worth buying for my daughter's birthday present. I wasn't hungry, so I didn't bother sampling any of the food which I'd done before. I saw a traffic cop perform. Wonderful. Once you've been to Grand Cayman and you check out the Turtle Kraals, Stingray City and you go to Hell, that's all, folks. You're not a diver, you're bored. The beach has nice sand. Read Less

This was in combination with Stingray City. After the stingray encounter, tour boat took us to the Rum Beach, very nice area, not too many people, blue water, restaurants and changing rooms right in the area. Nice relaxing break, too bad it was only 1.5 hours. Would have liked to stay more. Read Less

Royal Palms Beach Resort was very nice. There were 3 ships in port and it was never crowded. $4 cab (ended up being a bus), $2 entry fee, $12 lounge chair, $15 umbrella, plus food and drink were available. I loved it.

Great beach club. Perfect place to spend the day. There were 6 of us and we booked a cabana. Close to cruise port - short cab ride.

Brewery, Distillery, Rum cakes, and Beach break booked through Viator. The tour company Amvivo was awesome. I made an error when booking and didn't consider that island time would be different from our ship time, so we wouldn't return from the tour in time to catch the last tender. I called Amvivo in the morning when I arrived in port and realized my miscalculation and they were super nice and offered suggestions on how we could still make it work. We ended up cutting the beach break a little short and paying an extra $5 to get a cab back to the port, but it was still am awesome tour and we had just enough time to hop into the ocean to cool off and take some pictures of the gorgeous beach. I believe Jamar was our tour guide and he was the best! Read Less

Started with public beach up north called Calico. Took the bus. Didn't like this beach as it was packed like sardines. We decided to walk southwards and it began to thin out and be more elegant. I highly recommend beach day at Royal Palms Beach Club. Hemingway is 5 minutes from Royal and nice too, but not as many lounge chairs and they want a minimum spend of $25 per person. Royal Palms Beach Club has a $2 entry, $12 lounge chair, $15 umbrella. 7 Mile Beach had clear, warmish water. Nice sand. My companion got badly sunburned without even realizing it at the time. Wear lots of sunscreen and reapply. Read Less

Do not do this one unless you like be sandwiched on the beach in your beach chair. Be prepared to share you umbrella. Not much room on the beach, far from relaxing.

White House Beach break was very good. Definitely be prepared for the very rocky/coral reef and bottom. $14.00 drinks were a little too much for a 8 oz cocktail.

A waste of time and money. Paid big bucks for what was basically a loud and uncomfortable ride on a bus to a crowded beach. "Tour Guide" barely spoke to the guests.
