Nestling in the sparkling waters of the Caribbean, just south of Cuba and west of Jamaica, lie the three breathtaking Cayman Islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, the latter covering just 10 square miles. One of the friendliest, safest and most welcoming spots in the Caribbean, the islands are also one of the most diverse and exciting. You can snorkel with stingrays, take a swooping helicopter tour, explore deeper waters in a submarine or kayak through mangrove swamps. And then there are the miles upon miles of pristine white beaches. Whatever you want from your holiday, Cayman will give it to you.
The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory, and you can fly there direct from the UK with British Airways four days a week, or travel via Miami. With a blend of 100 nationalities, there’s a lively cosmopolitan buzz but with plenty of relaxed Caribbean charm. You’ll find top-quality accommodation to suit all lifestyles and budgets, whether you prefer a sophisticated resort hotel, a beachside villa or a cosy cottage. And with 150 superb restaurants – from beach cafés to five-star dining – offering local seafood and specialities such as conch fritters and rumcake, the island cuisine won’t disappoint.
If you can tear yourself away from Grand Cayman’s glorious Seven Mile Beach, explore some of the islands’ 305 dive sites – from wrecks and reefs to spectacular wall dives like the coral-covered, 2,000-metre deep Bloody Bay Wall off Little Cayman. Swim and snorkel with the stingrays at Grand Cayman’s Stingray City – a natural sandbar where hundreds of friendly stingrays gather in the water.
Take a stroll through the island’s 65-acre Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and discover its stunning flora – including five species of orchid unique to The Cayman Islands. Keep your eyes open for free-roaming Blue Iguanas – this is the only place in the world you’ll see them.
Every new day on Cayman brings a fresh experience and the chance to enjoy the other side of the Caribbean… which is why you’ll want to come back again and again.
