Cayman Islands expansive beaches of soft white powder and glimmering seas impart a calm and tranquil allure unto all who gaze upon them.
Cayman Island beaches are as diverse as they are rich in color and texture, running the gamut not not only in color but ranging from intimate privacy and tranquility to vast playgrounds offering every conceivable water toy, cocktail, food and social diversity imaginable. From private picnics to hidden coves, we will explore even the most remote beaches of the Cayman Islands.
Sit back and relax as we embark upon a journey along the wondrous beaches of the Cayman Islands, including many beaches that few feet have ever tread upon. Whatever your Cayman beach interests may be, you are sure to find all the information and corresponding photos and slideshows here at this site and our corresponding forums.
Wave and current activity constantly pulverize the corals, calcareous algae and shells of various sea creatures into fine smooth grains, which are bleached white by the sun; calcified green algae also play an important role by contributing marine sediments. The calcified sand is deposited from natural bodily activity by many marine animals, such as sea urchin and parrotfish, which collectively produce a significant amount of Cayman’s sand. Parrotfish, with their sharp teeth and parrot like beak scrape algae from rocks and grind the coral exoskeleton as they eat the tiny polyps within. Being unable to digest the hard skeletal material, it passes through their digestive system, which is excreted as sand. A single parrot fish can produce several tons of soft white beach sand during its lifetime.
Next time you are diving or snorkeling near one of Cayman’s reefs, keep an eye out for Parrotfish; if you are not sure what they look like, you will find them on our Fish ID card in Activity Guide. You will not only be able to see them munching on the reef but if you listen carefully you will hear the sounds of their beaks as they feast on the coral. If you observe them long enough, you will eventually see the excrement leave their body and settle slowly to the bottom of the ocean.
