Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach has been voted the best beach in the Caribbean, according to a reader survey by the Caribbean Journal for 2016.

Seven Mile Beach was named top out of 25 selected beaches, along with write-in candidates, by thousands of online publication readers.

According to the journal: “Seven Mile Beach, world-renowned for its white sand and crystal-clear waters, took home the most votes, followed by Aruba’s Eagle Beach and Puerto Rico’s Playa Flamenco ….

One reader wrote, “Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman is spectacular with white sandy beaches, crystal clear water of various shades of blue and most of all areas of privacy. The stretch of beach is never overcrowded, but is peaceful and the best place to see some of the most amazing sunsets on Earth.”

“It’s hard to disagree,” the online magazine wrote.

This is not the first time Cayman has been awarded by the journal.

In December 2014, Cayman was chosen as the “destination of the year” by the Caribbean Journal in its inaugural regional travel awards.

The publication wrote at the time: “The Cayman Islands is a laid-back place, with kind people and almost impossibly beautiful beaches. It’s remained somewhat under the radar, however; that’s starting to change, though, and thanks to the efforts of its tourism sector the island is seeing new heights, including one of the highest rates of arrival growth in the Caribbean.”
