For world class diving and snorkeling adventures in the East End of Grand Cayman, visit Ocean Frontiers , they are located less than 1 mile from Windward Cove. Our personal favorite dive operation after 30 years of diving around the world.
Whether taking a trip with Ocean Frontiers or simply heading into the ocean anywhere around the East End, this part of the island provides some of the most vibrant snorkeling experiences in Grand Cayman. Check out the sand holes and coral heads that populate the waters in back of Windward Cove, or venture beyond into the many other snorkeling areas that remain largely undiscovered by the majority of people that come to this island.There are plenty of places to explore just beyond our area as well. In additition, everybody wants to see Stingray City at least once if they've never been, and many go on every visit. We also have a snorkeling map of our favorite places here at Windward Cove and the rest of the island for our guests. You can rent snorkel gear for a daily/weekly fee from Ocean Frontiers or Red Sail Sports
If you find yourself longing for a larger, more diverse crowd than the one you brought with you, head down to the Rum Point Club in Cayman Kai. A bit over 10 miles away, Rum Point attracts locals and tourists alike. The beach is a somewhat larger version of Windward Cove with casuarina trees, and a large shallow area for fun in the water. Services there include a beach bar and grill, bathroom & showers, activity rental (sailboats, kayaks, jet skis, sting ray city trips, and more). Once again, we highly recommend one or more trips to Rum Point, followed by a return to your very own private version on the East End.
There are 2 single seat kayaks at Windward Cove for your use.
The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is one of the few places in Cayman where the native dry forest can be appreciated and viewed in comfort. Visit the lake, the blue iguana habitat, and experience the wonderful colors Cayman has to offer.
