Grand Cayman on our own

We will be on the Fantasy 12/8/12. Our party has 4 adults and 6 children ranging in ages from 3-11. Really we just want to have an easy beach day. I was reading that 7 mile beach is good? We need a place with bathroom facilities and a rest/bar. Can anyone help? Do we take a cab or two? Is it close to the cruise ship?

Thanks!

Hi we were a party of 7 and went to Royal Palms-it was great.Food was good, chairs for rent(dont remember how much) and nice clean bathroom facilities.We took a taxi van right outside the port area,it was easy.

Water was beautiful-we are going back in Jan

Thank you! I see they have beach cabanas for rent. Although only one on that day. Did you do that or just arrive and rent chairs/umbrella set up on the beach? I am assuming we can get all the food/drinks we need there as well?

Thank you!

We did not rent a cabana- don't remember there being any there. Food menu was plentiful and really good.

That was our favorite spot except CC of course.

We decided against Royal because the pool is adults only.

7 Mile Beach will have vendors with everything you need. You can take a cab or van from the tender area. Ask price in advance.
