We've been to Grand Cayman many times and while we've done all the usual tourist things (stingray city, Hell, scuba diving, snorkeling, shopping, etc.), we always enjoy our stop there. Now, we just hop on the public transportation and head out to 7-mile beach, specifically Caligo Jacks, where we enjoy the beautiful beach, some good food, cold beer, and just relax for the day. Truly an awesome day at a gorgeous beach with white sand and beautiful blue water - doesn't get much better than that.
But to add a couple of obtrusive piers that destroy the God-given reef just to make some extra dollars, is wrong, in my opinion. I have no problem whatsoever of standing in line to board a tender if it'll save the reef. What's a little inconvenience compared to something that can never be replaced?
