Came here for quick visit on our last day on Little Cayman. A little problem finding it as a work truck was covering the sign directing you the beach. Beautiful white sand beach, deserted, nice view of Cayman Brac. If you plan to stay a while, bring snacks, drinks and sunscreen. But please do not leave garbage on the beach.

Amazing snorkeling between the pier and the point. Easy swim (just don't go left of the point), and a gorgeous view in all directions.

They are building a new shade cover for the beach. No other services are provided. So bring water, snacks, and what you need for a good swim, snorkel, and/or photo sessions.

A small beach at the end of the island, have to work a little bit to get there but well worth the effort, crystal clear water and a great sand beach, plus you can see cayman brac in the distance. pretty good ride if your not up to it on a bike.

An incredible beach with some of the clearest water I have ever seen. Offers very easy and rewarding snorkeling.

Stopped by on our rental scooter during an around the island tour in April. Had heard a good bit about it. What we found was a nice large beach with a view of The Brac. Bascially an unkempt area. We picked up several bottles and cans but there was much more. Keeping the place cleaned up would be a good... More

It’s best to journey to Point of Sand by car or scooter, however, we have done it several times on bikes. Make sure bike tires are full of air and take the pump, just in case. Pack your fins, mask, snorkel, and plenty of water. Jump off the end of the dock and snorkel the coral boulders to the point.... More

Great beach with a view of Cayman Brac. Current varies but runs from the pier towards the point, so watch out for that. Apparently snorkelling right up to the beach side of the reef is very good if you are brave enough!

This is a picture postcard spot with a classic jetty and view of Cayman Brac in the distance, the sand is white and fine, and the snorkelling is awesome. There are no facilities beyond an open sided Cabana and please take your rubbish away!
