This idyllic beach retreat offers a good, albeit popular, alternative to Seven Mile Beach. Located on Grand Cayman’s North Side, Rum Point got its name after a ship was wrecked here and its cargo of rum was washed ashore. On discovering this bounty the locals got inebriated. Pay a visit to the Wreck Bar to re-enact this historical event.
The white sands of the beach are surrounded by enormous casuarina trees that shade the numerous hammocks and picnic tables here. The sunsets here are spectacular and the Rum Point Restaurant is a great location for a romantic dinner.
Visitors are welcome to use the beach for free but should note that consumption of food not purchased at Rum Point is prohibited. Bathrooms and showers are also provided.
Rum Point is about an hour’s drive from George Town.
