Cayman Islands National Museum PlaceS of Interest Barker’s National Park This is bit of hidden gem on West Bay, Grand Cayman. It can be reached by following signs for Ristorante Pappagallo which is located at its entrance. The park offers a stunning, tranquil beach which stretches for miles, an ideal spot for swimming, as the crystal clear waters which lap the white sand are shallow and calm.
