On the east end of Little Cayman, the snorkelling off the Point Of Sand is popular with beginner and expert snorkelers. At this shore-accessed snorkeling site, there is usually good visibility due to ideal currents flowing inside the protective reef. At Point Of Sand snorkelling sites, there are plenty of marine life and some coral heads in the sand flats.

Little Cayman Island is located about 60 miles to the northeast of Grand Cayman Island, and it is about 5 miles to the west of Cayman Brac Island. After a long day of snorkeling at Point Of Sand, you might want to grab a cool, refreshing drink at the Hungry Iguana on Little Cayman Island.

To reach the snorkeling on Little Cayman Island by air, you will fly into the Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) on Grand Cayman Island. Then, transfer to the inter-island airline to head to Edward Bodden Airfield (LYB) on Little Cayman Island. When departing the Cayman Islands, there is a departure tax of $37.50USD. This tax may be included in the airline ticket, but you will want to verify in advance.
