KAIBO is a beach dining destination, in Rum Point, Grand Cayman, in the Cayman Islands, BWI.
Escape to Kaibo, Cayman’s favourite beach restaurant on a Caribbean palm-fringed white sand shore. Here you will find two luxe restaurants – Kaibo Beach Restaurant and Upstairs at Kaibo, plus a gourmet coffeehouse, Kaibo Beach Espresso, and a boutique 26-berth marina.
Since 1999, Kaibo is the place to relax, sink your toes into the sand and be delighted by friendly service and Caribbean flavours. In additional to award-winning food and cocktails, you’ll find your idea of fun at Kaibo, whether this is beach games or dozing off in a VIP daybed. Located in Rum Point, within the North Side district, there is plenty to do if you feel more active. Within a short walk you’ll reach Starfish Point, and there is snorkelling in nearby coves, with the Bioluminescence Bay just around the point.
Rum Point is one of Cayman’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. Renowned for its luxurious beachfront villas, and notable residents, this tropical enclave offers the privacy and tranquillity that is hard to find on Seven Mile Beach. The quickest way to get there from Seven Mile Beach is 15 minutes by boat and 30-minutes by ferry; although the 45-minute drive by road is scenic.
Kyle Jenkins (formerly chef from Michelin starred restaurant in London, UK) leads our kitchen team from the beach kitchen. The menu is fresh, simple, local and special. Working with some exceptional local suppliers, the teams aim is to demonstrate just how good modern Carribean food can be.
