Out past Seven Mile Beach, the roads grow more winding and the sprawling hotels and condos that line the beach give way to smaller Caribbean-style houses and buildings. The charming district of West Bay is largely residential and also home to some of the island’s most popular attractions, including the Cayman Turtle Centre, as well as a number of delicious restaurants.
In regard to accommodation options in the Grand Cayman neighbourhood of West Bay, there are several options to choose from. For those seeking a budget friendly lodging that doesn’t skimp on quality, you might consider Shangri La Bed and Breakfast (345) 526 1170, conveniently located down tranquil Sticky Toffee Lane. You are within walking distance of a few very good restaurants from there, including Calypso Grill and Catch, however breakfast is something of an institution at the Shangri La and you won’t want to miss out on their impressive morning spread!
La Cazetta Guest House & Cottages (345) 949 8239 offers an intimate stay in their two queen sized bedrooms with ensuite bathroom in the main house, or their self-serving cottages for larger visiting parties. The Guest House and Cottages open onto a communal pool area, ideal for sunbathing and lounging.
Divers might like Cobalt Coast Resort (345) 946 5656, for their comfortable accommodations, great open-air bar and restaurant area, and array of diving packages available to guests. Their much-acclaimed valet diving service allows you to appreciate Cayman’s impressive underwater sites – hassle free!
For those in need of a little more room, Cayman Sunset at Coconut Bay, located in quiet Northwest Point, is perfect for families and larger groups of friends. These spacious townhouses are a few minutes away from bustling Seven Mile Beach and the property features two pools, as well as access to the sea for all your snorkelling and diving needs!
