Royal Palms Beach Club
If you find yourself on vacation in Grand Cayman, whether it be on a land trip or cruise, make sure to spend a day at the Royal Palms Beach Club. Royal Palms is located in George Town on the beautiful Seven Mile Beach. After visiting George Town many times, and experiencing all that the island has to offer, Royal Palms Beach Club is my favorite place to go when I am in the area.
Plan to arrive early as this place will be full by noon. If you are coming from the George Town cruise port, it is a $4 cab ride per person to get here. Royal Palms charges a $2 entry fee but the clean, spacious bathrooms alone are worth it. There is a bar/outdoor restaurant when you first walk in, a pool complete with a DJ booth, and plenty of space on the beach. All seating can be purchased for the day: lounge chair at the beach $10 with an umbrella $15, covered cabana at the pool $100 (4 chairs), or a lounge chair by the pool $50.
When you arrive at the Royal Palms Beach Club, simply pick the area you want to sit in and get comfortable; servers will come by once you are situated to collect money for your lounges and offer you a menu from the restaurant. Prices of food and beverages are pretty comparable to what you will find elsewhere on the island, and it is pretty good as well as convenient. If you choose to have lunch at the restaurant itself, tables and chairs fill the patio.
A huge plus is that free wifi is available throughout the property and if you sit by the pool, you can enjoy music all afternoon. Paddle boards, jet skis, and snorkel equipment for tours are available for rent. It is fun to see everyone enjoying the beach in different ways. On Friday nights, Royal Palms has a dance party on the patio and the DJ plays music well into the night. The upstairs can also be rented out for private events.
No matter why you are in town, the Royal Palms Beach Club is the perfect place to spend a day in Grand Cayman. The luxurious beach club is the nicest around, offers perfect beach views, and has visitors coming back time and time again. Do not miss this!
