Smith's Barcadere, Grand Cayman

4.5
#3 of 15 in Beaches in Cayman Islands
Relax at Smith's Barcadere. Slightly off the beaten path, uncrowded, and with plenty of shade, the cove's calm blue waters framed by rocks offer the perfect spot for a swim. Remember to bring along your snorkeling gear, as there is also plenty to see underneath the surface. An abundance of trees near the coast offer refuge from the sun, so set up your picnic gear under the shade. Amenities include a shower and bathroom with fresh water, but you won't find any food vendors near the cove. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Grand Cayman holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Smith's Barcadere and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Nice out of the way beach away from busy 7 mile beach. Located on the south side of the island it has a nice beach in between rocky jut outs. Some people were diving in. Others were swimming in the waves. Seemed pretty safe
  • Nice controlled area for beaching with the kids plus well maintained bathrooms and shower for clean up after. The free wifi, lovely seating with shading trees makes this spot perfect for family picnics and barbecues. I love it
