Governors Beach adjoins the Westin Hotel property. The water drops off rather quickly here so it might not be the most acceptable for small children. Still it is rock free and the waves are non-existent so the swimming is excellent. If you want to see...More

This is a nice beach on a quieter part of SMB. There is a nice little reef off the beach for snorkeling. One of the better snorkeling spots on SMB. There are also good eating options down the beach and across the street.

Very soft sand with hardly any rocks very calm ocean when we were there, good snorkeling, and parking very close to the beach. We went to cemetery beach the next day and we were very disappointed so we left and went back to governors beach.

We went snorkeling about 200 yards out and ran into a Nurse Shark. I hear it is a very rare occurrence, but we hit the jackpot on that one. I have also heard they are not known to attack. I felt blessed to have seen...More

This stretch of 7 Mile beach is so much quieter than the hotel area. There's ample parking, a johnny on the spot, a few shaded spots up closer to the parking but still on the beach, and tons of open space for whatever you desire....More

Other beaches have better snorkeling like cemetery beach, smiths cove and Spotts beach. Probably best snorkeling is on the north side, Cayman Kia beach.
