Default Enough time to shop & go to the beach in Grand Cayman?

First--thanks to all that have replied to my many questions.

In the Grand Cayman, if we do a beach excursion at 11:00-2:30 will we have enough time to shop either before the excursion or after? Is the shops close to the pier? OR is the Best of the Cayman Island Tour at 8:30-11:30 a good choice and then tak a cab to the beach?

The main shopping area is just a couple of blocks from the ship. It is only a five minute walk from the main shopping area to the ship.

Take care,

Personally, I would do the island tour at 8:30, then go shopping and maybe a quick lunch before going to the beach. Hope you are into jewelry because there are SO many jewelry stores in Grand Cayman. A variety of other shops as well. It's a beautiful, clean little island. You will have to tender in and back to the ship. Have fun!

You should have time. Advice, wear sunscreen on the part in your hair. My scalp got burned at Seven Mile Beach.
