Just south of Seven Mile Beach and approximately 46 feet below the surface are Eden Rock and Devil's Grotto, two of the most popular diving spots on Grand Cayman. Both are wonderful underwater mazes filled with tarpon, silversides, parrotfish and barracuda, and they should be enjoyable swims for both beginner and intermediate snorkelers. 

The Eden Rock Diving Center, located on South Church Street in George Town on Grand Cayman, offers sponsored shore and boat dives as well as rental equipment to the side-by-side sites. Recent cruisers appreciated the proximity of the diving center to the cruise ship terminal, making for a quick and easy shore excursion.

#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.
