Discover West Bay Homes For Sale
Enjoy the cool ocean breeze and palm-trees surroundings of your West Bay home or condo. Whether you're looking for an upscale masterpiece on the beach or a lovely home a little further inland among the quaint residential streets, you'll surely find a home that fits your preferred lifestyle and budget in the West Bay real estate market.
At the high end of the market, ultra upscale developments such as Britannia Estates, Watercolours, and Water's Edge boast lavish condos and villas with the most breathtaking ocean views you can dream of. Many of these units have floor-to-ceiling windows and massive lanais, and with the properties situated right on the powdery Grand Cayman sand, you'll feel like you're right on top of the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. The interiors are just as splendid as the views, with immaculate floor tiles covering the majority of the 3,000-plus square-foot living space. These homes are priced at well over $1,000,000 USD.
You can also find almost equally impressive condos and single-family homes in developments beside the water, but not the beach. Communities such as The Shores boast spacious single-family homes surrounded by lush grass near the canals that weave through the eastern part of West Bay. You can find a variety of extremely high-end homes in this community, but you can also find more affordable homes or vacant lots to build your own dream home.
One-story single-family homes and townhomes at around 2,000 square feet, as well as traditional condos between 500 and 1,500 square feet—all in in quiet, green inland neighborhoods—provide the most affordable living in West Bay. These homes, which are generally priced between $200,000 and $400,000 USD, include all the modern interior elements you'll ever need. They're also just a short drive away from the local beaches, shops, restaurants, and natural amenities listed below.
West Bay Highlights
West Bay Public Beach, Cemetery Beach, and Barkers Beach might not be as visited as some of the other Cayman Islands beaches, but they're just as pretty and provide miles of pillowy soft sand to relax in.
West Bay beaches are also home to beautiful coral that attracts plenty of tropical fish, and there are public boat ramps spread out across the shoreline to get even further out into the incredible Caribbean water.
Furthermore, the shoreline walking paths provide some of the most enjoyable strolls you'll ever experience, and cyclists will enjoy paved roads and minimal traffic.
In addition to the beaches, there are plenty of other sights that shouldn't be missed in West Bay:
- Cayman Turtle Farm: a marine park that includes much more aquatic life than just turtles
- Kittiwake ship wreck: this former US Navy vessel was sunk in 2011 to create an artificial reef, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime diving and snorkeling experience
- Barkers National Park: in addition to the beach, this park features lovely mangroves, bright green iguanas, and brown pelicans
- Delectable seaside restaurants such as VIVO Cafe, Cracked Conch, Calypso Grill, and Ristorante Pappagallo
