Smith Cove

Smith Cove on Grand Cayman Island

As hurricane Joaquin wrecked havoc on the eastern part of the Caribbean, part of the storm made it’s way over Grand Cayman. I was scheduled to go on a submarine tour (would have ben SO cool) but it was canceled due to the rougher seas and approaching storm. Instead I made a stop at Smith Cove, which is a small beach on the western part of Grand Cayman. The sand there is beautifully white and the water is a dreamy shade of turquoise.

Upon arrival I was greeted by Betsy the tourist, a larger-than-life statue of an iguana named Betsy dressed as a tourist. She is there to remind the visitors that although the iguana’s on Grand Cayman are plenty, they are still a precious addition to the island’s eco-system. I took a walk over to the north end of the beach and found lots of little shells attached to the rocks. I think they were snails, as they were too small to be crabs. I’ve heard the snorkeling here is pretty good, but I’m not a fan. The beach only had a couple of people on it this day, but I’ve heard it can be a hot spot for visitors.
