Starfish Point, Rum Point

#3 of 15 in Beaches in Cayman Islands
Beach · Nature / Park
Head down to Starfish Point, a remote beach known for one star resident in particular. The shallow waters by the beach feature numbers of bright orange starfish sunning themselves. Stroll out to see them up close, snapping photos of their brightly colored, iconic shapes against the background of golden sand. Resist the urge to pick them up (though you may see others doing so): the more these fragile, protected creatures get manhandled, the less they'll want to come back. Put Starfish Point and other Rum Point attractions into our Rum Point road trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Amazing spot to find starfish. Luckily, the party boats are not as frequent as they were and this place is replenishing.  more »
  • Polluted with trash, busy with motor boats and drunk people, a few poor starfish getting poked at and stood on. Very depressingly Cayman sight to behold.  more »
  • Fantastic place
  • Situated on the north side of Grand Cayman, Starfish Point is paradise personified. Speckled with sea stars this beautiful stretch of beach is breathtakingly beautiful and perfect for snorkelling as it is surrounded by crystal clear water on all sides.
