Cayman Islands

Overview

The Cayman Islands shares all the beauty of its Caribbean neighbours while offering a unique destination to couples, families and adventure seekers alike. With incredible scenery, more species of flora and fauna than the Galapagos islands, world-class diving, five star luxury resorts and amazing cuisine; Cayman is the place to create unique memories you will never forget.

 

In Grand Cayman guests can while away their days on the sun-drenched, white sands of Seven Mile Beach, learn about the native Blue Iguana and encounter friendly stingrays. Evenings are spent in vibrant bars and restaurants, dining under the stars or perhaps exploring Rum Point by kayak to witness the breath-taking night time bioluminescence display.

 

Accessible by a short flight on a 15-seater Twin Otter plane, the two sister islands are true paradise retreats where time stands still. A world away from the cosmopolitan Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac lies in the shadow of its magnificent 42m bluff. It is a lost world of dramatic bat caves, forest trails and rare birds.

 

Smallest of the three islands, Little Cayman’s many pleasures include scuba diving the world-renowned Bloody Bay Wall, exploring the island’s secluded palm-lined beaches and watching native frigate birds and Red-Footed Boobies.

 

Home to vibrant underwater bioluminescence, Cayman guests can experience the ‘Northern Lights of the Caribbean’ in moonlit kayak tours.

Itinerary

My perfect day……….
An early morning stroll on the white sand of Seven Mile Beach. Breakfast at Icoa Fine Foods – lovely fresh organic local ingredients. A spot of memento shopping in George Town. Duty- free prices meant swapping a fridge magnet for a Pandora bracelet! A simple but delicious lunch at Rotiat Café Cimboco. My highlight – a boat trip to swim with huge, gentle rays at Stingray City.  Snorkel with colourful fish at Paradise Reef or try the Atlantis Submarine. Evening cocktails at Tiki Beach Bar as the sun sets.  A water-front restaurant for dinner under the stars.
