This trio of islands is an autonomous British Overseas Territory known for spectacular beaches and outstanding snorkeling and diving. But dig a little deeper and you’ll discover it has so much more to offer! As an important center of banking and financial services, it is one of the safest and most prosperous countries in the Caribbean. Located less than 500 miles south of Miami, it is conveniently close for visitors from the United States.
Grand Cayman Island is home to most of the country’s residents, as well as stunning Seven Mile Beach, Sting Ray City, Cayman Turtle Centre and the quaint capital of George Town. A forty-minute flight away is Cayman Brac, where a dramatic limestone bluff runs along the length of the island, offering myriad caves to explore on foot, or by sea. Little Cayman offers a calm, serene landscape, and some of the world’s best scuba diving at Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park.
The Cayman Islands are not saturated with all-inclusive resorts, instead offering a wide variety of hotels, condos, and private villas. The culinary scene is just as varied and prolific and has garnered a reputation for being among the very best in the Caribbean. Some restaurants have their own fishing boats, keeping their kitchens supplied with freshly caught wahoo, mahi mahi, snapper, yellowfin tuna and more.
