One of the sandiest beaches in the Cayman Islands; secluded from the city. About a mile of Bodden Town (previous capital of the Cayman Islands), Beach Bay it’s a man-made lagoon with depths that range between 7 to 40 feet. A big reef surrounds the beach. It is recommended that you should snorkel on the shore side of the reef (especially beginners), and not on the outside, weather can sometimes present itself as harsh and wavy on this side. The massive reef harbours species like Damselfish, Tube Worms and Shrimp. Turtles and Stingrays also roam the site.
The reason for this “casual” name, is that besides this reef functioned a well-known fast food establishment in George Town. A small cove conceals a “Cheeseburger Reef” beach. For some divers and recurrent snorkelers, it is one of the most beautiful reefs you could ever explore in Grand Cayman. The natural structure of the coral formations, rising from 40 feet below water to 10 feet above the water, give shelter to many marine specimens: Sea turtles, Tarpon and Stingrays are recurrent.
