One of the best things about visiting Grand Cayman Island is the many white sand beaches that circle the island. Chief among these is Seven Mile Beach, a wide expanse on the west side of the island. These beaches provide a beautiful backdrop for a number of activities, from snorkeling to enjoying a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. A varied collection of area beach bars line the beaches of Grand Cayman Island. Below are a few of our Grand Cayman beach bar favorites:
- Coconut Joe’s. Located in the heart of the Seven Mile Beach resort area, Coconut Joe’s has been served beach drinks for more than 20 years. It’s also a popular breakfast spot. The decor is no-frills. You might even see a few chickens wandering around. However, the food and drinks are top notch and affordable. The view: incomparable

While duty-free shopping, swimming with the stingrays and snorkeling and diving among Grand Cayman’s beautiful coral reefs may be the best known activities, you’re sure to regret leaving the island without savoring at least one cup of coffee or cocktail at a quirky and relaxing Grand Cayman beach bar.
