Want to know more about what there is to do at Seven Mile Beach? Here are some of the most popular activities and places to explore!

Snorkel or Scuba Dive

With its clear, sparkling waters and vibrant wildlife, Seven Mile Beach is the perfect place to snorkel or scuba dive, allowing you to explore the ocean even more. There are a few great spots to check out if you choose to dive in!

The Wreck of Gamma is a fascinating shipwreck at the southern end of the Seven Mile Beach. The wreck is quite close to the shore so it’s easy to swim out to the wreck. A storm in the 1980s caused the wreck and it's been there ever since, allowing you to swim inside the structure itself and see fish doing the same!

There is another “wreck” of sorts off the Seven Mile Beach. In 2011, the US Kittiwake was purposefully sunk offshore. This ex-US Navy ship is now a destination for scuba divers all over the world. You’ll need to find a licensed tour company to snorkel or scuba here, but seeing the expansive ship and the abundance of wildlife (turtles, barracudas, tropical fish) is worth it! 

Adventurous beachgoers also love checking out Cemetery Beach. This area is full of dense coral that is home to a wide variety of fish. It’s a bit far off but it’s worth going out there and enjoying the colorful, vibrant wildlife in this area.

Cheeseburger Reef is another great spot near Seven Mile Beach as well as Boggy Sands Reef. Located at the north end of Seven Mile Beach, Boggy Sands Reef is a bit difficult to access but once you’re there, you’ll see coral and fish galore.


Parasailing is a breathtaking way to see all of Grand Cayman from above the crystal clear waters of the Seven Mile Beach. There are an abundance of professional parasailing guides on the Islands that will help you have a safe and enjoyable time parasailing hundreds of feet above the water. You’ll want to take a camera with you to capture all of the stunning sights you see while in the relaxing, crisp air. You may also want the crew to get some pictures of you from below!


If you prefer being on the water instead of above it, paddleboarding is another popular activity on the Seven Mile Beach to try out. If you live nearby, grab a longboard and head over to the beach since it’s just a few steps to the shore! Then you can paddleboard on the clear, calm water, soaking in the sun and relaxing. Other popular water sports on the Seven Mile Beach include kiteboarding, windsurfing, and kayaking.


The beach itself is perfect for relaxing! The sand is soft and clean and the sun is bright. The peacefulness of the waves lapping on the shore make it the perfect place to close your eyes and get some fresh air. Bring a blanket, a sunhat, an umbrella, and get ready to spend the day reading, listening to music, and watching the waves.

Eat by the Water

There’s an abundance of restaurants along the water, allowing you to eat high-end, fresh-caught dishes while seeing the beauty of the ocean right in front of you. Some restaurants have decks that let you eat right on the water and others have a tropical, vibrant vibe that make it the perfect spot to have a fun beach night with friends. From seafood to Italian to Caribbean, you’ll find just about everything by the water.

Take a Stingray City Boat Tour

Stingray City is one of the Cayman Islands’ most popular attractions. You’ll get to be up close and personal with southern Atlantic stingrays as you stand in about three feet of water. You will be able to swim with the stingrays as well as feed them and pet them. Stingray City is located about 25 miles off the shore of Grand Cayman, so you’ll need to find a tour that brings you to this dreamlike location full of marine life. These friendly stingrays are worth the trek.

Visit George Town

This is the capital of the Cayman Islands and is also the largest town in the islands. George Town is full of art galleries, shops, and eateries that will keep you entertained and in awe all day long. You can also find an abundance of tours to sign up for, including glass-bottom boat tours, and historical museums.
