It is not quite spring yet so our minds have drifted off to warmer habitats like Grand Cayman Island. Vacationers flock to this British territory, but most only take in the sights and sounds near their resort or hotel. Grand Cayman is a gorgeous location, that is just 22 miles long. This means all the major sight seeing can be done in one day. No need to rush though, take your time like the locals do, and enjoy the location that is loaded with natural beauty, white sandy beaches, and cerulean waters. Guests can choose from a wide selection of cars to explore West Bay in Cayman that the locals call “Hell”. Due to the sharp outcrop of rocks there, local people refer to the area as hell, but we can assure you of paradise.
Rum Point, on the northern end of the island, is a local favorite with many popular hang-outs where you can unwind. Take a short boat trip, and you can enjoy this beautiful beach in a hammock or lounge and soak up the sun or chill out in the shade. Don’t forget to have a mudslide at Rum Point Club while you relax or grab dinner at Kaibo Restaurant or Starfish Point in nearby Cayman Kai. The East End of the Cayman Islands is a small settlement that is most known for Lovers Wall, and Blow Holes. Stop for photos with towering water spouts and hear the thunderous blowholes rush water in the air at the coastline.
Another must is a visit to Georgetown, the “cosmopolitan” capital, where you can shop, take a submarine ride, tour the rum distillery or visit famous Seven Mile Beach. This stop hosts the most popular bars and restaurants. Last but not least is must see Sting Ray City! Located in shallow water on the northwest side of Grand Cayman and one of the MOST popular attractions on the island, allows you to dive or snorkel and feed the beautiful and friendly stingrays right out of your hand. It is said to be a phenomenon like no other and one you will not soon forget! The Cayman Islands are just a one-hour flight from Florida, so visit and experience all that is Cayman.
