Seven Mile Beach: Grand Cayman


Writing about cruising with kids gives me a chance to look back at our photo from our latest cruise 2 years ago to the Caribbean. After 2 years, Seven Mile beach is still Miss J’s favorite memory for the whole trip.

I had done a lot of planning on that trip and we booked an excursion for the swimming with sting ray later on that day in Grand Cayman.

However, we arrived early in the morning which gave us a couple hours before our meeting time. So we decided to take a taxi to the beach. At $4 per person, it wasn’t bad to get there. It was early in the morning so the beach was pretty empty.


We got dropped off at the Reef restaurant on the beach. We were so early that the restaurant was still closed. We walked along the beach to find a good spot. We found a shade spot and even before I could put everything down Miss J and Mr. Z were already running off to the wave.


The sand was so soft that I feel like I just walk on soft carpet. The wave was not big so it was perfect for them to play in. We picked a great spot with shade so I could imagine taking a nap while Mr. Rojo helped build sand castle with Mr. Z.

They simply just enjoyed jumping the wave, play with the sand and relax on the beach. I think we could have just stayed there the whole day and it would still be one of the best day of the trip.

When it was almost time to head back to our meeting spot for the excursion, we stopped by the restaurant to order a drink. The restaurant had shower so it was convenient for us. I couldn’t imagine riding a boat the whole day with sand inside and out our bathing suit. :)

I’m so in love with the beach there. I know we will have to come back and spend more quality time there.

  1. Grand Cayman’s on our list of places to check out. We are beach peeps and your pics describe why!

  2. so fun, Here’s my photo story. happy Friday!

  3. I’ve thought about doing a cruise just for variety but wonder if I can stick it on a boat. Looking at beaches like these makes me think twice about doing a cruise. It would be a good chance to do nothing. The kids do look like they’re having a fun time, and isn’t sand in the swimsuit part of going wild at the beach? I remember having half the beach in my swimsuit, a bit gritty but yes a lot of fun.

  4. I love 7 mile beach! Hope to take the kiddos eventually.

  5. looks like paradise to me, great photo friday

  6. There are few beaches with softer sand than 7 mile beach …

  7. Sounds like the perfect day!

  8. What a great shot of that beach. I have never been on a cruise. I feel like I’ve done so many other stuff, but why a cruise never came up is weird. I think I’m ready!!!

  9. Nice, I love soft sand. We have heard amazing things about Grand Cayman, one day we will have to go there.

  10. This is a great post and a reminder that sometimes when you’re traveling with kids the simplest things work best. I know that going swimming in the river tops every excursion I plan when we are staying in Vermont.

  11. So nice! What a great place to vacation.

  12. mmmm….soft sand and cool water sounds really good right about now!

  13. Looks like a great beach!

  14. Capital “B” of beaches! Your paragraph sums it up so nicely, and resonates with Mara’s comment about how the simple experiences can amount to the most fun: “They simply just enjoyed… the beach. I think we could have just stayed there the whole day and it would still be one of the best days of the trip.”

  15. I’ve been to Seven Miles Beach too. It is beautiful! We didn’t do another excursion here either. We wanted to just relax and enjoy the beauty of this beach!

  16. I need to be on a beach right now, with a good book, and the soft white sand beneath my feet…Ahh….how I wish!

  17. Nice photos. I’m glad you enjoyed Seven mile beach as much as I do. The snorkeling there is pretty sweet!

    Very nice photos, thanks for sharing, I had a question, we will be doing Grand Cayman as a port and we would like to do the 7 mile beach on our own like you did. Where did you get your taxi from? Did you reserve it in advance? Is it hard to flag down a taxi to get to the beach? Thanks!

  19. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been too this site before but after checking through
    soje of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and
