Relaxed and casual, yet sophisticated and stylish -- come experience the friendly hospitality and the many land and sea activities that characterize a Cayman Islands vacation.
Unique in the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands dazzle with lavish accommodations, a variety of activities, world-class dining, duty-free shopping, serene crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches, and perhaps the best scuba diving on the planet – all just an hour from Miami.
A British territory made up of three islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman – the Caymans enjoy a highly elevated standard of living, thanks mainly to the islands’ position as the largest offshore banking center in the world (with more than 600 banks in residence). Naturally, the capital city of George Town on Grand Cayman enjoys a cosmopolitan flair, with excellent restaurants and upscale shopping boutiques that offer everything from crystal and jewelry, to china and island artefacts. The city’s sleek modern financial and government buildings stand in stark contrast to the distinctive 18th-century gingerbread houses and shops lining the harbor.
The outstanding coral reefs and calm, clear waters have made the Caymans a favorite destination of divers. Among the best spots for snorkeling and scuba diving are Cemetery Reef and Eden Rock. Water temperatures reside in the vicinity of 80°, and underwater visibility extends to 100 feet or more.
World-famous Seven Mile Beach, which runs the length of the western shore of Grand Cayman, entices with golden sands, roped-off swimming sections, and shady casuarina trees. This aquatic landmark is tailor-made for scuba diving, snorkeling, sport fishing, horseback riding, hiking, jet-skiing, parasailing, swimming, windsurfing, kayaking, and water-skiing.
