Just got back from a trip to GC. Did 12 shore dives in total. I'll be honest ... this dive really surprised me! I wasn't expected much based on what I had read but it turned out to be one of my favorites of the trip. The beach access is incredibly easy and secluded. The surface swim was not too challenging and the reef life and activity was very enjoyable. I will definitely repeat this dive when I return.

Beautiful location! A lot to see! Beach area is nice too. Picnic tables and shade! Parking across the street. Located a short drive south of Georgetown!

Did Smith's cove in both 2004. Easy to get to & good parking. Cove was rough both times. Probably not bother with a diver, but hard to snorkel. Visibility was limited as the waves kicked up the silt & sand. Love2snorkel

Grand Cayman has so many awesome dives that I suspect this site gets over looked. Park across the street in the free lot and walk to the beach and in ya go. Swim over the sand about 100 yards to the reef line and drop down 20-40 feet. Mild current, no surf. 75 ft visibility. Large mounds of coral with tons of life. TONS! A great place to bring non-diving family members as this location actually has a lovely sandy beach nestled between iron shore, hence the name Smith's COVE. Snorkeling is at its best here! The kids will enjoy clear water with plenty of coral and fish. No other divers and just a few snorkelers. The beach is located about one mile past Sea View Reef and Sunset House heading out of Georgetown on the right side.
