The Cayman Islands are located south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica and comprises of three islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
Grand Cayman is the largest of the islands and most cosmopolitan, with an abundance of exquisite dining, nightlife and beaches. Grand Cayman is around 76 square miles, and on the west side of this island is the renowned Seven Mile Beach – with sand stretching for miles with sparkling aqua marine waters, it is often hailed as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.
If you can bring yourself to leave one of the many beaches, then George Town is worth a visit. With its colourful and traditional Caribbean-style buildings eclipsed by high finance corporations and businesses, it is a great town to explore and revel in the delights of duty-free shopping. There are many local craftsmen throughout the area as well as the signature designer brands that entice visitors year round.
Another popular hotspot is Stingray City and the sandbar located to the north, where you will have the opportunity to swim with friendly stingrays. Other highlights include the National Museum, Rum Point, Bodden Town (the first capital of the Cayman Islands), Cayman Turtle Farm, QE II Botanic Park and the National Trust’s Mastic Trail – a 2 mile traditional footpath through unspoilt woodlands.
With over 50,000 residents and an influx of tourists, Grand Cayman does not disappoint when it comes to culinary choices. Offering local speciality dishes, international cuisine and waterfront dining, there are over 250 restaurants giving Cayman the reputation as the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean”.
