Starfish Point, Grand Cayman

#4 of 15 in Beaches in Cayman Islands
Head down to Starfish Point, a remote beach known for one star resident in particular. The shallow waters by the beach feature numbers of bright orange starfish sunning themselves. Stroll out to see them up close, snapping photos of their brightly colored, iconic shapes against the background of golden sand. Resist the urge to pick them up (though you may see others doing so): the more these fragile, protected creatures get manhandled, the less they'll want to come back. Put Starfish Point and other Grand Cayman attractions into our Grand Cayman road trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
