Governor's beach was up there with our favourites for swimming, snorkelling, plenty of space on the beach and car park close by. No amenities but we brought all our own stuff and there's a Fosters nearby for snacks and drinks. Absolutely loved it.

We stayed at Villas of the Galleon off Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the condo. The beach is pristine and you don't have to swim very far to reach the coral/explore the sea life. Beautiful fish here!

I agree with other response probably very expensive if available at all. Plenty of open free space though!
