Cemetery Beach and Reef, West Bay

#5 of 15 in Beaches in Cayman Islands
Reef · Beach
Head off the beaten track and find relaxation and activity in equal measure at Cemetery Beach and Reef. The reef lies 27 m (89 ft) from shore and, because the beach hasn't been developed for tourism, it remains largely unspoiled. See schools of colorful tropical fish swimming around the interesting coral formations. Back on dry land, the beach has a good amount of shade from native plant life, meaning you'll be able to cool off after a long snorkeling trip. Bring your own food and drink, as you won't find any amenities onsite. Add Cemetery Beach and Reef and other attractions to your West Bay trip itinerary using our West Bay online vacation planner.

  • You need to swim out 100 yds or so to see more extensive coral but it is worth the swim. We experiencd no current and saw plenty of fish. Great snorkel spot!  more »
  • Very clean beach
  • I read online that Cemetery Beach was a great place to hunt for beach glass and snorkel. WOW! This beach is beyond expectations! The sand is soft, the water aqua blue. You do walk along side the cemetery to get to the beach. We went via Public bus and the driver was helpful in dropping us off. Snorkeling above the small reefs you will find lots of beautiful fish! I also found some green and brown beach glass (very tiny pieces where the ocean meets the sand! You have to visit this beach! If you love to snorkel you won't be disappointed.
