  • Seven Mile Beach- Grand Cayman

Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman – Moving to the west of George Town, you will travel along the West Bay Road which features the world-famous crescent of Seven Mile Beach, a truly spectacular stretch of pure white sand which plays home to some of the finest luxury beachfront properties within the Cayman Islands and the Caribbean with enviable ocean views and state-of-the-art amenities.

New construction is limited in this area but the length of Seven Mile Beach is fringed with condominiums which have either been very recently constructed or are well-established. The building code in the Cayman Islands has historically prevented the development of high-rise condominium blocks which means that Seven Mile Beach remains a peaceful paradise with some of the least dense beachfront real estate offerings in the Caribbean. The variety of property available on Seven Mile Beach however is great starting from an entry point of around US$300k right up to the super-luxury residences to be found at The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, Water’s Edge, Caribbean Club and Water Colour’s which can run into eight-figure sums. Choose from family-friendly properties with lots of excellent lifestyle amenities such as tennis courts, swimming pools and gyms, as well as higher-end homes that incorporate the latest designs, materials and fixtures and fittings into a contemporary and luxurious property. Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman offer all the luxury lifestyle choices associated with the hotel including the spectacular Silver Rain a La Prairie Spa, world-class dining at Blue by Eric Ripert and a Nick Bollettieri designed tennis program, the coach behind such tennis greats as Andre Agassi, Monica Seles and Maria Sharapova.

On the east of the West Bay Road, running parallel to Seven Mile Beach, upscale condominiums and homes line the canals that bisect the land, creating local communities all along this stretch of Grand Cayman which overlooks the waterfront playground of the North Sound. The Ritz-Carlton Residences stand proudly on Seven Mile Beach, and the Resort as a whole straddles the entire width of the West Bay Road with the Ritz-Carlton Deckhouses overlooking the canals on the North Sound. On the North Sound side of the road a diverse selection of properties to suit a variety of budgets and a select collection of contemporary, luxury homes, many with their own boat deck, pool and incredible private view of the North Sound.
