I've never been there but have heard it's a Caribbean paradise, shimmering shallow turqoise waters, and, as I've been told, some of the best snorkeling on the island. There is a bar and restaurant there, hammocks and shade trees. Here's a link to a site that has some pictures and more info. Rum Point
We were very dissappointed on our last cruise that was supposed to stop in Grand Cayman last time when the ship could not port there due to bad weather. Ask someone off the dock where you can take the ferry that goes to Rum Point. If the ferry is still running it's
supposed to be a much shorter trip. Otherwise you'll have to go all the way around the island to the other side, a bit longer but still might well be worth the trip. There was a ferry that picked you up close by the cruise docks at a hotel, not sure which one it is. Maybe another poster will reply about the ferry service. Most people go to 7 mile beach. We went to 7 mile on our first trip there and were dissapointed because there were too many people and too many hotels. I'm a bit spoiled by beaches since I live in Florida. To most people 7 mile beach is great but I've seen so much better. Hope to go to Rum Point on our next Western Caribbean Cruise if it stops in Grand Cayman! Have fun and write a post about your experience there if you go.
