Set right on the sands of Seven Mile Beach, the Royal Palms Beach Club is a white sand oasis of luxury, comfort, and beauty. Beneath the shade of a rustling palm, spread out on a lounge chair beneath an umbrella and listen to the lap of the waves, before slinking off to the swimming pool for a drink at the swim up bar. Groove to the tunes of the poolside DJ, and mingle with guests from nearby resorts, condos, and visiting cruise ships. There’s a full-service restaurant just steps from the beach, as well as rentals on everything from snorkeling gear to paddleboards and jet skis. Bake in the Grand Cayman sun all day and soak up the tropical rays, or stick around to watch the sunset that often sets the sky ablaze on this western-facing coast.
Insider's Tip: On days when a visiting cruise ship is in town, try to arrive before 12pm since the cabanas can quickly get booked.
The Royal Palms Beach Club is just five minutes by taxi from the George Town cruise port, and standard taxi fare is about $4/person. All pool guests must be 18 or older, and cabanas range from $75-$125.
