Rum Point Grand Cayman
Perched on the north coast of Grand Cayman facing Cuba and just minutes from Stingray City, Rum Point is a Grand Cayman must-do. You can’t miss it. Just look for the hammocks in the trees, the absurdly beautiful pier that highlights the calm blue sea beneath, and a host of colorful island beach bars and restaurants. If you want to enjoy delicious, local food you can’t go wrong at any of the waterfront restaurants here.
Things to Do at Rum Point
Rum Point Grand Cayman is laid back and low key, with soft sand that’s perfect for sunbathing or a rousing game of beach volleyball. This popular beach is not necessarily a quiet beach nor is it overcrowded either. It’s a happy mix of both. You can lounge about under the palms, snorkel, commune with the tourists or take a romantic walk along the beach with your love. The choice is up to you.
You can easily snorkel at Rum Point and get up close and personal with the vibrant sea life of the Caribbean. The barrier reef ensures safe snorkeling and soft sand that is shallow for a long way from shore, making it a great location for all ages and abilities.
Rum & Mudslides
Rum Point, named for the barrels of rum that used to wash up on shore from shipwrecks, is actually more famous for being the home of the Mudslide frozen drink, which was created here at the Wreck Bar back in the 1970’s and perfected in the 1980’s.
Until you can get there in person and have one from the Wreck Bar, here is their recipe to try at home:
Mudslide Recipe from the Wreck Bar in Grand Cayman:
Pour equal parts Absolute Vodka, Kahlua and Bailey’s or Molly’s Irish Cream. Blend with ice for 30-40 seconds. Float a shot of Kahlua down the straw, dust with cinnamon and a cherry. Enjoy!
