This marine park is the top diving spot on Little Cayman, and it's a favorite of both skilled and beginning scuba divers. The park's top sight is the Bloody Bay Wall, an incredible reef and drop down that starts about 20 feet below sea level before plummeting more than 1,000 feet. Visibility of the water's native stingrays, turtles and sharks averages around 100 feet. 

Exploring the Bloody Bay Marine Park will be expensive, but the specific cost depends on the dive company you choose. Still, habitual visitors and first-time travelers to Little Cayman insist the expense is worth it thanks to the variety of marine life and high visibility. Some of the top dive companies that visit the Bloody Bay Marine Park include Conch Club Divers (located inside the Paradise Villas resort) and Reef Divers (in the Little Cayman Beach Resort).

#1 Seven Mile Beach (Grand Cayman)

For several years now, Seven Mile Beach has been lauded as one of the Caribbean's best beaches. Take one glance at this crescent-shaped shore and one sniff of the soft, coral sand and you'll easily understand why. Many of Grand Cayman's best resorts are situated on Seven Mile, and there are a number of casual beach bars and restaurants, a playground, restrooms and showers to boot. What's more, it's also a great spot to try snorkeling for the first time – the clear water allows snorkelers to see the vibrant fish and beautiful coral. 

Recent visitors enjoyed the calm waves and soft sand even though there were heavy crowds. Reviewers say Seven Mile Beach is one of the most beautiful places in the world, affording ample opportunities to snorkel and stand-up paddleboard, as well as build sand castles and take long walks.
