Saturday Mornings at Rum Point

Whether you’re just kicking off your Grand Cayman adventure or making that last day on the island really count, there’s nothing more enticing than Saturday morning at Rum Point.

One of the most invigorating ways to start your tropical Saturday is a dip in the pool or ocean. Of course, South Bay Beach Club’s exclusive pool is ideal for swimming and sunbathing, as is our scenic section of Seven Mile Beach. This beach, one of the most famous in all of the Caribbean, is renowned for its coral sand and clear water.

Other options for sun, sand and surf include Rum Point Beach, which features shallow water perfect for children to swim in, along with volleyball nets, convenient changing rooms and charming huts.

If you’re yearning to start your day with even more adventurous seaside fun, check out Rum Point’s many other water activities. Experience coral reefs and aquatic life at close range by snorkeling at the famous sandbar area known as Stingray City — where you can actually pet the friendly, non-venomous creatures.

Local outfitters also offer floating toys, rafts and other water crafts like paddle boats, sailboats, stand-up paddle boards, banana boats and kayaks. Alternatively, take guided trips on glass-bottom boats, or book an early fishing excursion.

For a Saturday morning adventure you’ll never forget, go horseback riding on the beach. You can arrange to be picked up right from your villa, then taken on either a ride along the beach, or an extra-special “ride and swim” adventure.

If golfing is more your thing, you’re just a tee’s throw from the North Sound Club, the only 18-hole, champion-level golf course in the region.

And for a true adrenaline-rush to kick start your Saturday, go on a morning helicopter ride. A helipad is available right on Seven Mile Beach for a tour of the scenic shoreline from above. Longer rides featuring the entire island are also available.

Of course, breakfast by the water is always a great way to start the day. Our concierge service can help you set up a balcony feast with the perfect view. You’ll also find plenty of cafes and eat-in bakeries nearby in Rum Point, along with other seaside eateries serving Saturday morning breakfast.

Round out your morning with some duty-free shopping. Everything from exotic clothing, Caribbean artwork and diamonds are sold in boutiques, and even vendor huts along Seven Mile Beach. As you might imagine, rum (along with other spirits) is also sold at Rum Point.

Grand Cayman – Paradise for Families

Grand Cayman is home to one of the most beautiful and well-known beaches in the world: 7 Mile Beach.  It is a place where time stands still and conch is the catch of the day.  If you are visiting Grand Cayman in search of clear aqua blue waters, soft white sand, and soca music, you will not be disappointed.  But Grand Cayman has more to offer families than just languishing in the sun.  Try these activities during your stay:

  • The Jolly Roger Pirate Experience – Have you ever wondered what being on a pirate ship might be like?  Find out in Grand Cayman!  Enjoy a sword fighting, swashbuckling pirate show in the Caribbean.
  • Visit Stingray City – This excursion is fun for everyone.  Located on the North Sound, Stingray City is home to just under 100 wild stingrays.  Mingle with the stingrays while standing on a sandbar in the middle of the sea. These gentle giants are incredibly friendly and love to be fed.  A visit to Stingray City is only a sensory experience that you will not soon forget.
  • Swim with the dolphins – Dolphin Cove and Dolphin Discovery offer the opportunity for you to swim with the dolphins.  The perfect excursion for children of all ages, the parks both have other opportunities to see exotic wildlife and sea life in lieu of swimming.
  • See Grand Cayman by helicopter – Children and parents alike will enjoy soaring above the beaches and mangroves below to see the island in a unique way. 
  • Snorkel at Rum Point – Enjoy some of the most shallow and clear water on the island.
  • Cayman Motor Museum – If you are looking for an activity away from the water and sand, head over to the West Bay and visit the Cayman Motor Museum.  The kids will love seeing the bat mobile that was produced for the 1960s TV Series, “Batman”. 
  • Try a water sport together -There are so many things you can do on the beach to spend a day.  Snorkeling is a favorite for all ages, riding Jet Skis, paddle boarding, banana boating, parasailing – the list goes on and on.  Make sure to collect seashells along the way to commemorate your day at the beach.

Grand Cayman is a fantastic place to spend your family vacation.  Playing in the sun, meeting new people, and having unique experiences are part of what life is all about.  You can do all those things and more in Grand Cayman, the jewel in the Caribbean Sea.
