There is a wide range of condos available for daily rental on Seven Mile Beach. For example, Seagull Condos, located on one of the best stretches of the Beach and opposite the West Shore shopping plaza, offers one-bedroom condos (generally hard to find). Villas of the Galleon is a very pretty resort containing two-bedroom units, approximately mid-way along the Beach. Silver Sands Condos is located at the quiet north end of the Beach providing luxurious and spacious three-bedroom units with a large grocery store in close proximity.  Sunshine Suites also offers wonderful kitchenette type lodging but also boasts a popular casual restaurant.  My personal favourite is a century old Caymanian cottage, Rest Assured, on the very northern end of Seven Mile Beach.  The Kittiwake wreck dive is right off the beach here and the snorkeling in the front yard is exceptional.  The cottage has 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths and an outdoor shower.  It is nestled in ancient sea grape trees which provide a lovely retreat from the heat for reading or sipping cocktails. The cottage is family owned & operated.  Call Beth on 345 946 0464 for reservations or visit HomeAway website and click on property #169919.


Where to Eat:

Here are some favorites of my own. Their quality has stood the test of time, and the prices are not exorbitant... which is hard to find!


This West Bay landmark gives you a feast of homestyle Caymanian fare.

Alfresco: This is as casual as you can get.  If you are on the northern end of Seven Mile Beach, just stroll up to your table from the beach or if driving, you will find Alfresco tucked in the grape trees just a few yards past the 4-way junction in West Bay. The food is good and is reasonably priced.  Dress: Barefoot or flip flops and anything cool.

Cracked Conch:
One of the oldest most respected restaurants on the island with
a great location right on the water.

Another great sports bar with excellent dishes.

Calypso Grill:
Morgan's Harbour in West Bay.
Excellent seafood overlooking the north sound.
