Default Beaches with Young Children

We are going on our first cruise this May 23rd on Carnival Victory visiting Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Ocho Rios. We are taking our 4 year old twins (boy/girl) and our 3 year old daughter. Our desire is spend the day at the beach during each stop at a place that offers safe swimming, food, and drinks. Any ideas or tips on good excursions with our kids would be a help!

Hi Mike,
In Cozumel you can go to Chankanaab Park, decent snorkeling and nice beach. You can book a ship excursion or just take a cab there.

In Grand Cayman there is 7 mile beach, again there are ship tours there, but you can take a cab to one of the hotels that welcome cruise passengers and spend the day there, its a beautiful beach.

In Jamaica we just did the falls, but I think your kids are a little young for that, just do something there with a ship excursion.

Cozumel - Playa Del Sol, Channunkaab National Park or Mr. Pancho's are all really good beach places to spend the day with the kids.
Grand Caymen - I don't know if your little ones would be frightend by the sting rays, but if you think that is something they would like to see, book a tour to Sting Ray City Sandbar - they can touch, swim and feed the rays. Then spend some time at 7mile beach - most of the hotels offer a day pass to the beach with use of the hotels facilities.
Jamaica - book at day pass at any of the resort hotels on the beach.
