Rum Point Tours

22 Reviews
Rum Point
A stretch of white sand bordered by aqua Caribbean waters, Rum Point is a welcome departure from Grand Cayman’s busy Seven Mile Beach. The area is known for its laid-back vibe, with calm, shallow waters ideal for swimming and wading with small children. 
 
The Basics
An ideal spot for snorkeling, Rum Point is also home to one of the world’s most famous bioluminescent bays at Sand Point Cove. Watersports such as sailing, diving, and water skiing are popular activities, and tours of Grand Cayman’s North Side or East End often stop at Rum Point for some beach time or water sports. Nighttime excursions to the bioluminescent bay are available on certain nights of the month, when conditions for glowing microorganisms that cause the phenomenon are just right. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Rum Point is a good option for families with kids. 
  • Changing rooms, showers, lockers, and hammocks are available to visitors.
  • Bars and restaurants on the beach around Rum Point offer a variety of food and drink options.

How to Get There
Rum Point is located on Grand Cayman’s north coast, about 45 minutes by road from George Town and the cruise port. Transportation is available via taxi, and guided tours typically include hotel pickup and drop-off. 
 
When to Get There
Rum Point is a popular day trip destination for families and can be crowded during school vacations and national holidays. The beach is always open, although hours for water sport vendors and restaurants vary. The best time to visit the Cayman Islands is between March and June; the rainy season lasts from May to October. 
 
The Bioluminescent Bay at Sand Point Cove
There are only a few bioluminescent bays around the world, and Sand Point is one of them. This phenomenon is caused by tiny plankton called dinoflagellates, which glow neon when disturbed by boats, swimmers, or kayak paddles. Conditions for the glowing microorganisms are right only a few times per month, so it’s best to book tours ahead of time.
