There are only a handful of private residential homes on the main section of Seven Mile Beach some of which include Lizard Run the West Indian Club south of The Sovereign, Turtle Run in between the condo complexes of the Caribbean Club & the Meridian and Government House home to the Governor of the Cayman Islands. At the northern end of Seven Mile Beach is Boggy Sand Road which houses the majority of private homes on Seven Mile Beach.
For those who enjoy the water best by boat but also want to be close to the beach there are a number of canal front developments with access to the North Sound and minutes from Seven Mile Beach, these include The Shores, Crystal Harbour, Salt Creek, Governor's Harbour, the Cayman Islands Yacht Club, Canal Point, Clipper Bay and Snug Harbour.
Other exclusive beach front locations for Cayman Islands real estate include South Sound, home to Castillo Caribe and Barco a la Vista some of the finest luxury beach front houses in the Caribbean, the beach front in Prospect is home to such spectacular real estate offerings as Casa Coyaba, an exceptional estate with tennis court, fitness studio & in home theatre to name a few of its luxury delights. Further along the coast moving east is a delightful section of Caribbean beach known as Spotts Bay home to such elegant luxury homes as Cresting Wave.
Continuing east is a section of coast line known as Beach Bay which is a picturesque & spectacular bluff rising to around thirty feet above sea level this eventually falls back down to a delightful beach cove at the end of Beach Bay Road the site of which has been under considerable speculation for development and was at one time slated for the Residences at Beach Bay. Moving along the southern coast to the historic & one time capital of the Cayman Islands: Bodden Town, property development is less dense but there are one or two luxury beach front residences such as Cayman Casita and Sea Spray Too at Beach Bay that present well built real estate that is further from the madding crowd & has more of a relaxed Caribbean island feel. As we move further around Grand Cayman’s southern coastline into Pease Bay & Breakers the water colours become vivid & present every hue of blue through turquoise the real estate offerings here are fewer still but present themselves as rare jewels in a majestic Caribbean Sea, the architect designed property “Artists Retreat” is one such gem and truly a home of inspiration.
Arriving at Frank Sound there is over three miles of beach front with some exceptional high end luxury homes dotted along its coast line, Frank Sound is also the name of the road that intersects Grand Cayman from South to North & provides easy access to North Sound Road, Old Man Bay & eventually Rum Point & Cayman Kai. All of these areas but especially Rum Point & Cayman Kai provide luxury beach front real estate with a quintessential Caribbean island feel, peace & tranquility are to be found in bountiful supply along with pristine white sandy beaches, palms trees & warm crystal clear waters, the real estate here provides a vacation paradise where relaxation is not optional. Rum Point provides an execellent selection of luxury beach front homes in a variety of architechtural styles from more traditional Caribbean style homes to the ultra modern such as Camden House on Rum Point Drive. As well as Kaibo Yacht Club giving easy access by water to the North Sound & the Seven Mile Beach corridor there are local restaurants to be enjoyed: Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill & Rum Point Club Restaurant. The real estate in Cayman Kai & Rum Point may not be the most grandiose you will find in the Cayman Islands but this is more than compensated for by the picturesque surroundings & the relaxed ambience.
If upon reaching the Frank Sound Road one continues east on Sea View Road into the eastern districts it will eventually take you via the Queens Highway & Old Robin Road all the way back to the northern end of the Frank Sound Road. Along this spectacular coast there is greater elevation in many areas so less beach front available but there are some select estate homes that enjoy unique locations that combine the bluff elevation with access down to private sandy coves. Royal Vista Estate is one such property & represents some of the finest luxury real estate in the Caribbean & certainly in the Cayman Islands. Located on the Queens Highway, Royal Vista Estate comprises 56 acres combining the 4 acre house site of bluff coastline, spectacular ocean views & a sandy beach cove with a 52 acre botanic park complete with helipad, tennis courts, horse stables, lakes, water features, wildlife and a world class collection of rare & indigenous tropical plants. Another such example of luxury real estate along the Queens Highway is Twin Coves thus named because it enjoys two private sandy coves accessible from the bluff top via stone staircases; the main house provides an exquisitely finished grand residence & the estate also provides comfortable guest housing.
For those looking for luxury without the need for an estate property there are some delightful vacation homes along this coast line that represent great value for luxury real estate in the Cayman Islands, a perfect example of these are Christmas Palms, Moon Shadow and Babylon Reef, exceptional villas that give access to the ocean & have spectacular sea views, perfect rental property villas or vacation homes.
