With stretches of pristine white sandy beaches, tranquil cerulean seas, and both family-friendly and adults-oriented accommodations, the Cayman Islands is an unmatched Caribbean getaway fit for any traveler or occasion.
Home to three unique islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman – the Cayman Islands caters to family vacations, romantic escapes, culinary adventures, diving excursions, and more. Plus, travel to the islands is convenient with nonstop flights from several U.S. cities directly to Grand Cayman.
While all three islands offer memorable experiences for families of different ages and preferences, perhaps the most iconic one can be found in the North Sound of Grand Cayman at Stingray City. Here, swarms of friendly curious stingrays await visitors in shallow sandbars. With countless opportunities to interact with the native wildlife, from horseback riding along the beach to visiting the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, the possibilities are endless. A special family-friendly adventure is also available night or day by way of submarine via Atlantis Submarines, which offers families an intimate look into colorful marine life from below sea level.
Perfect for couples seeking an island escape, the Cayman Islands offers an array of relaxing and romantic activities. Whether guests desire a private rendezvous just for two at Owen Island – a small islet only accessible by sailboat or kayak – or prefer an indulgent couples spa treatment at one of the islands’ many spa and wellness centers, romance awaits around every corner.
Heralded as the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” the Cayman Islands boasts culinary influences from across the globe – from Thailand to Italy and even the Americas – making it a true melting pot of diverse international flavors and distinct local culture all rolled into one.
And there are a number of world-class dining options available with 200+ restaurants ranging from casual beach side lunches and sunset dinners to elaborate banquets and upscale restaurants. The Cayman Islands is also home to the annual Cayman Cookout, the Caribbean’s premier foodie event held at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. The Taste of Cayman is another great culinary event, held at Camana Bay, which showcases over 54 restaurants and an open-air kitchen.
Diving and Beneath the Sea Excursions
Regarded as the birthplace of recreational diving, the Cayman Islands offers a multitude of dive sites for underwater enthusiasts. In Grand Cayman, guests who snorkel off the coast can look forward to seeing an abundance of nutrient-rich reefs filled with barrel sponges and schools of fish. Cayman Brac features small caves and the only diveable Russian warship in the Western Hemisphere, while Little Cayman offers more than 50 unique dive sites such as the famous Bloody Bay Wall. For non-divers, the Cayman Islands offers a wide array of water sports, from fishing and snorkeling to kayaking, kitesurfing and other activities.
