Caribbean destination: Cayman Islands
The mere mention of the Cayman Islands evokes its importance as a banking center and all the negative connotations that accompany it. But the Cayman Islands are actually a spectacular place to visit. It is especially good for diving enthusiasts. Even if you are just lounging on the beaches, it is possible to create some lasting memories. Read on to find out if the Cayman Islands are a match for your next getaway from reality!
If you are coming to dive, you can choose from the 240 dive sites available on Grand Cayman. I would recommend snorkeling and seeing Stingray City. This basically means being surrounded by a large number of stingrays 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 some right away. There may be some requirements that you need to take care of before your arrival. Take a look at this 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, wade and swim in the clear water before choosing which bar or restaurant to rest in.
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! Hike 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 total seclusion and 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 out to Owen Island, but the time together would be worth it. Just keep in mind that this island is more for those couples looking for a bit of romance and privacy than can be found on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
Seclusion, the beauty of the tropical islands, the romance and the beaches. These are the words you will associate the Cayman Islands with once you have visited them. Whatever you come to find, you will find it and more!
