Award-winning beaches, luxurious resorts, outstanding diving, a rich culture and heritage, and world-class dining options, the Cayman Islands is truly the jewel in the Caribbean. Add to the mix year-round tropical sunshine, and Cayman’s laid-back island vibe, and it’s easy to see why Cayman is a popular destination.
Comprised of three islands - Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman - the Cayman Islands lie some 150-miles south of Cuba. The largest and most cosmopolitan is Grand Cayman, covering around 76 square miles, and it’s here where you’ll find most of the action. It is also the first port of call for thousands of tourists who arrive by cruise ship on an (almost) daily basis.
Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, affectionally known as the Sister Islands, run to an entirely different beat. Cayman Brac is only 14 square miles, while Little Cayman is just 10 square miles. A short flight away, the Sister Islands feature a gentle pace of life and an old-world charm where peace and tranquility are the order of the day.
Grand Cayman is the Cayman Islands’ largest island and the seat of government. It is here that you’ll find the majority of the action, from world-class resorts, award-winning dining, luxurious shopping, and a wide range of world-renowned activities and attractions to suit all. One of the most popular spots is world-famous Seven Mile Beach, where you’ll find a busy cosmopolitan atmosphere. However, quaint island charm is never far away, and you’ll find ample secluded spots to relax and unwind. Whatever Caribbean experience you are after, you’ll find it in abundance on Grand Cayman.
For the adventurous traveller, Cayman Brac offers the ultimate destination. Named for its distinctive Bluff towering 43-meters above the shoreline, the island’s varied topography will satisfy and challenge those in search of new experiences.
Adventure seekers will enjoy exploring the Brac’s labyrinth of ancient limestone caves, while rock climbers can choose from more than 70 different routes to ascend the Bluff.
Cayman Brac is also a birdwatcher’s paradise, with numerous distinctive species such as the frigate bird, the brown-footed booby, and the peregrine falcon, as well as the Brac parrot. While Cayman Brac may not be an ideal location for finding long stretches of sandy beaches, the diving is as spectacular as any found on Grand Cayman.
With a population of less than 170 and a truly dramatic underwater landscape, Little Cayman offers a true slice of Caribbean paradise.
Just 10-miles long and 1-mile wide, Little Cayman offers tranquility, seclusion, and an unhurried pace, where visitors can choose to do as much, or as little as they please.
Bask undisturbed in the sun at beautiful beach spots such as Point of Sand. Kayak over to uninhabited Owen Island and revel in a real-life Robinson Crusoe experience, or explore some of the world’s best diving below the waves at dive sites such as Bloody Bay Wall.
