The mere mention of the Cayman Islands evokes its importance as a banking center and all the negative connotations that come with it. But the Cayman Islands are actually a spectacular place to visit. It is especially good for diving lovers. Even if it’s just lounging on the beaches, it’s possible to create some lasting memories. Read on to find out if the Cayman Islands are a match for your next escape from reality!
If you’re coming to dive, you can choose from the 240 dive sites available on Grand Cayman. I would recommend snorkeling and seeing Stingray City. Basically, this means being surrounded by the myriad of rays that flock to the area around this 12-foot dive. Always do your research and go with a reputable dive tour operator. This is something a travel agent can help with, especially since many may already know something from the start. There may be some requirements that you need to meet before your arrival. Check this out to make sure there are no surprises and you can continue to enjoy your diving excursions.
If you prefer to stay on the beach soaking up the sun, there is no better place than Seven Mile Beach. This area can also be found on Grand Cayman. Here, stroll and swim in the clear water before choosing which bar or restaurant to rest at.
Cayman Brac is one of the three islands that make up this destination. Enjoy the views from the cliff or brac and take great photos to share at home! Walk the many trails found on this island and try to catch a glimpse of the Brac Parrot, which is an endangered species.
If you are looking for seclusion and total relaxation, Little Cayman is the island for you! The beaches here are certainly more private than Seven Mile Beach. There is even a much smaller desert island called Owen Island. You have to paddle to Owen’s Island, but the time together will be worth it. Just keep in mind that this island is more for those couples looking for some romance and privacy than can be found on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
Seclusion, the beauty of tropical islands, romance and beaches. These are the words with which you will associate the Cayman Islands once you have visited them. Whatever you come to find, you will find and more!
