Why Everyone Should Consider Buying Seven Mile Beach Condos

Are you considering purchasing property in the gorgeous and dream-like Cayman Islands? Then you have come to the right place. The Cayman Islands has three separate islands, all offering stunning views and a truly relaxing and inviting atmosphere with matching attractions and nature. The three islands in this glorious territory are Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. Each one is unique in its own way and offers unforgettable experiences and lifestyles for tourists and locals alike.

One of the greatest places to live, however, has to be Seven Mile Beach, which is located on Grand Cayman Island. It is truly a remarkable place and is nearly anyone and everyone’s dream to live there. At Crighton Properties, we make it our life’s work to make our clients’ dreams a reality by finding them the best properties in the Cayman Islands, but find the most pleasure in finding them Seven Mile Beach condos.

There are numerous reasons why anyone should buy a condo on Seven Mile Beach, so let’s dive into the reasons why you should.

1.  Location

One of the greatest parts about having a condo anywhere on Seven Mile Beach is its convenient location to everything that Grand Cayman has to offer, from busy city life to tranquil beachtown life.

George Town

George Town is the capital of the Cayman Islands and located on the western part of the island just four miles away from Seven Mile Beach. If you are ever in the mood to wander around a town and be a part of a more eclectic environment, you could practically walk to it! George Town offers visitors and locals loads of exciting activities. You can find various tours here, including scuba diving, snorkeling, boat tours, and much more. There is even an aqua park there for added swimming and ocean fun.

There is also some key sightseeing to be done there. The town has Heroes Square, for example, which is located in the center of the city. It is a square filled with monuments and other sculptures that help explain the 500-year history of the Cayman Islands. It also contains the Mariners Memorial, which commemorates the lives of sailors and mariners lost along the Cayman Islands’ shores.

George Town offers more exciting places to visit for any history buffs. The town has the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. This gallery provides guests with an explanation of the Islands’ unique art history and its progression in style.  Fort George, which was used as protection during the colonial period, can also be found there.

The nightlife in George Town is an exciting element and is worthy of exploration, too. The town lights up at night, offering its wanderers a selection of night clubs, restaurants and entertainment.  

No matter your taste or mood, you will find plenty to do in George Town, which is so conveniently nearby Seven Mile Beach. But, the location isn’t only convenient for visiting George Town, but also other great locations in Grand Cayman.

Starfish Point

Are you looking to snorkel or even swim with some sea creatures that are a bit more docile than others? Then Starfish Point, which is located on the northern side of the island, is the perfect place for you. It has been discovered to have over 2,000 different species of starfish in the area. Be prepared to be in awe of the myriad of colors, shapes, and sizes of starfish in this tranquil area of the island.

Mastic Trail

For those rare times you aren’t up for anything beach-related and would prefer to go for a hike, then the Mastic Trail is where you should head. You can explore the lush greenery that’s inland and discover what other beauty and wildlife lie on the island instead of on its outskirts.

Elizabeth II Botanic Park

The Elizabeth II Botanic Park is a great place to explore and admire the large variety of plant life on Grand Cayman. It is popular for being home to rare species of exotic plants of varying colors, shapes, and sizes. But, it’s not only exotic plants that are on display here. Visitors can view a traditional-style cottage that depicts how life was lived in the Cayman Islands in the early 20th century here or even gawk at the majesticity of the Grand Cayman Blue Iguana, which is endangered and can only be found on Grand Cayman. This well-maintained park is home to this rare species of iguana, but also to other endangered and rare species of flora and fauna.

2.  It’s an Award-Winning Beach

One of the main attractions of all the islands has to be their beaches. However, Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is truly exceptional. It has gotten attention from the media and other impressive entities. TripAdvisor recognized it by claiming it to be the fourth best beach in the Caribbean, while MSN named it the 12th greatest beach in the entire world.

Needless to say, it’s a pretty great beach. The soft white sand beach leads to transparent water that gently laps on the shoreline. Under the clear water lies an astounding myriad of sealife, including coral reefs and their inhabitants. Cemetery Reef located off Cemetery Beach on Seven Mile Beach is particularly great for snorkeling and discovering these beautiful and awe-inspiring critters for yourself.

Anytime you want to go snorkeling or go for a relaxing dip in dream-like waters, you can, as it is just steps away from your condo when you live here. One of the other great aspects of this pristine beach is the sunsets. Being on the western side of the island, the sunsets here are right over the water every evening. The sunsets are unparalleled, as they offer an artist’s palette of colors strewn across the sky that’s so perfectly mirrored by the calm and transparent sea. The sunsets here are unforgettable and you’ll be glad you moved here even for this point alone.

3.  Restaurants

The luxuries of being on this award-winning beach doesn’t end with just its exceptional beauty. The beach also offers an abundance of restaurants and entertainment. With these venues, you can really live life to the fullest: a perfect beach with the perfect drinks and food.

There is no shortage of options along Seven Mile Beach, especially when it comes to food. The restaurants offer a plethora of cuisines and foods, like Mexican, American, seafood, pizza, and much more. Any mood or flavor you’re in can easily be sufficed by any restaurant you find.

We recommend Tillies or Bar Jack for the best food, drinks, and views directly on Seven Mile Beach.  There is also a pool in case the beach and sea weren’t what you needed that day. Another suggestion for great food, drinks and also sunset views, is Coccoloba Bar and Grill. They have some of the best ceviche around! However, there are plenty of other great restaurants  along this beach which are sure to satisfy any craving.

4.  Shopping

When living anywhere, there come days when you simply need to do some shopping-- whether you actually “need” to or not is not really important. Regardless of what you “need” to buy, Seven Mile Beach has it.

There are numerous shopping plazas in the Seven Mile Beach area. You can indulge in some relaxing retail shopping at any one of these or all of them! No matter which shopping plaza you choose to investigate, your shopping experience will be pleasant and enjoyable while catering to your needs!

5.  Unique Attractions

While all of the above attractions and destinations on the island and in the Seven Mile Beach area are spectacular to explore, there are a couple of places that are very unique. We suggest that you check them out on your visit.

Stingray City

Stingray City is quite aptly named as it is a sort of “city” for stingrays. You can join tours to go swimming, diving and snorkeling with stingrays. While snorkeling and diving with sea creatures isn’t a particularly unique experience for many Caribbean destinations, this area is unique in that it’s solely for snorkeling and diving with stingrays.

Not only do you get to swim and snorkel with these wild stingrays, but you can also feed them squid! You can interact with these majestic creatures and get some photo keepsakes.

Hell

Yes, you’re reading this title right. Just a short drive from Seven Mile Beach, you can go to Hell! Hell isn’t what you’re thinking, of course. Instead, it is a geographically special landmark in West Bay and is a relatively small piece of land that has black jagged limestone peaks jutting out of its lush and green surroundings.

This special attraction was created 24 million years ago by its salt and lime deposits. However, the origins behind the name are still debated today. While visiting Hell, you can visit any of the three gift shops available or even put your head through a photo-stand in as the devil, shouting, “Welcome to Hell!” Then, obviously, take a photo to forever commemorate your successful visit to Hell.

6.  Properties with a Variety of Views

After all this, you may still be wondering what Seven Mile Beach condos could offer you that is truly remarkable and far better than condos in other Caribbean locations. If the points of location, an award-winning beach, amazing restaurants, and even Stingray City don’t grab you, then the options in property “fronts” sure will.

Beachfront

This is quite an obvious, yet very inviting and note-worthy, point: there are tons of condos located directly on the stunning beachfront on Seven Mile Beach. Imagine waking up every day and being able to witness the tranquility and stunning beauty of the Caribbean Sea-- and on one of the greatest beaches in the world no less!

But, alas, some people simply don’t prefer beachfront locations for their humble abode. They may be wary of a few other instances, like weather, wind, and so forth. Well, for those who simply aren’t looking to be directly on the beach, there are other options than Seven Mile Beach condos for you, too.

Waterfront

If you prefer not to be directly on Seven Mile Beach, but near the beach and all the amenities that are available in the area, perhaps a waterfront or canal front property would be best for you. You get to choose whether you can see the ocean or the canal while on a variety of property types.

Canal Front

Another wonderful feature of Seven Mile Beach is that not only is it located on a to-die-for Caribbean beach, but it is also right near Crystal Harbour. The highly sought after neighborhood of Crystal Harbour is located to the north of Seven Mile Beach and is a sound investment. This community features canal and water front lots and homes for the discerning investor, and is conveniently located near amenities such as shops, schools, hospitals, restaurants,  entertainment and more.

This gated community offers stunning views of the numerous canals, which all lead to the North Sound. Those who live in this exclusive community reap the benefits of usually having their own dock to port their boats for easy access to the sound and even a stunning golf course.
