Seven Mile Beach, right out the back door!
Discovery Point Club #1 is located at the northern, 'more quiet' end of Seven Mile Beach. It is nestled in the best of both worlds- close enough to enjoy the tourist action of the bigger SMB resorts, but removed enough that you can forget about it, too.
Several wonderful restaurants near our condo serve everything from tasty local fare to fine dining, and a grocery store about a half mile away carries the items and brands you're familiar with from home, as well as fresh produce and a hot deli. (Be sure to try the 'coconut drops' made by local church groups as fundraising items. They usually sell them somewhere in the deli section, near the breads. Yum!)
For water lovers, our condo is situated in the middle of some of the best snorkeling on SMB. Directly out front we have seen everything from puffer fish and sea turtles to parrotfish and barracuda- and even an octopus in the evening! A short walk or swim north is Cemetery Beach, another snorkeling hot-spot. The large shade trees there are perfect for relaxing in the ocean breeze.
For scuba divers, some of the best shore-diving spots on the island are just a few minutes drive north. The dive shops and restaurants there rent tanks, equipment, etc., and are a fun place to relax after the dive. For boat dives and other excursions, many of the dive companies on Grand Cayman will pick you up at the condo when you book with them. I can honestly say that we've never had a bad experience with any of the operators we've used!
For non-water activities, one of our very favorite places is the Botanical Gardens. It is just a beautiful, quiet place to go. Lots of birds, shaded trails and benches to rest on. It's not a thrill-ride, but it's great- especially for kids to be outdoors. Our boys loved running along the paths and spotting blue iguanas in bushes.
