Sandy Point, Little Cayman
Sandy Point is a great spot for tourists wanting to escape the crowds of the trendy Seven Mile Beach and avoid the seclusion of the less modern areas of the region. Sandy Point is situated on east Little Cayman. This beach is near the city of West End, so tourists will have access to modern amenities but secluded enough for those avoiding large crowds. Many vacationers on Cayman Brac spend the day on Sandy Point.
This beach is a great alternative for people desiring to be near modern amenities but avoid the large crowds of Seven Mile Beach. Pristine spots for snorkeling can be found in the South Sound. Large crowds occasionally gather when cruise ships stop at a port near Smith Cove.
Owen Island, Little Cayman
This small island is just off the shore of South Town. It is the perfect spot for a day picnic, a swim, or a short kayaking trip through Bloody Bay. Owen Island is a great destination for vacationers wanting to spend the day on the island but be back at their hotel later in the evening.
