Governors edited


Governor's Beach, situated on Seven Mile Beach right next to the Governor's House, is renowned for its pristine white sand, clear waters, and breathtaking sunsets. It's no secret amongst locals that this public beach is ideal for activities such as swimming, snorkelling near the offshore reef, sunbathing, building sandcastles, and for coming together with friends. It's the spot in Grand Cayman so perfect, you are prepared to bring all of your own equipment and refreshments for complete self-sufficiency, just to enjoy, unperturbed, how idyllic and friendly a location it is. That being said, a very short walk away, there are also restaurants and bars and other vendors based in the hotels, ready to supply watersports equipment and many other things.

Additional Information


As of November 2023, recent planned upgrades include the installation of permanent washroom facilities, a notable upgrade from the previous reliance on portable facilities. There are a few picnic tables, but there are no loungers and umbrellas available for hire at this beach. There is, however, excellent parking volume right up to the beach, so even though the nature of the site is to bring your own everything, it is easy to unload and load it up again!


With two large hotels nearby, Governor's Beach witnesses a significant amount of watersport activity, although watersports vendors do not operate on the beach. While activities are mainly confined to designated swimming areas, visitors can conveniently rent equipment from nearby hotels.
