Stingray City is located in the North Sound area of Grand Cayman. The site is approximately 1 mile off the coast of Rum Point and is known as the Sandbar due to its shallow depth of around 3 feet and lies alongside a beautiful protective reef. The Sandbar is a popular location for snorkellers and non-swimmers, as standing and touching a Stingray is easy (and great fun!).

Stingray City Sandbar - a shallow (approx 3ft deep) sand bank located in the North Sound area of Grand Cayman. It is possible to stand up on the sand, just as if you were standing in the shallow end of a swimming pool! This area is approximately 1 mile off the coast of Rum Point and has the unique feeling of being "in the middle of the Ocean".
Coral Gardens - a wonderful snorkel site situated close to Stingray Sandbar. Here you may see a green moray eel, nurse shark (the friendly ones!) or just hover on the surface and marvel at the coral reef.
