Discover white sandy beaches, spectacular wildlife, a diverse culinary scene and exciting adventures in the Cayman Islands
Nestled in the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, the British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands is made up of three idyllic islands all offering luxurious island escapes. From the barefoot elegance of Grand Cayman, to the adventurous spirit of Cayman Brac and the tranquillity of Little Cayman.
Average year-round temperatures of 28°C make them perfect to escape the British winter for relaxing sunshine breaks. Catering for family holidays, romantic escapes, culinary journeys, diving adventures and for those simply looking to switch off – all visitors can look forward to a warm Caymanian welcome!
It’s not just the endless white sandy beaches, clear turquoise seas, world-class diving and luxury hotels that are the attraction on the Cayman Islands. Colourful themed events, spectacular festivals with a real Caymanian vibe and a mouth-watering global culinary scene make it an incredible holiday destination.
The Cayman Islands may not be the first holiday destination that springs to mind when thinking about spectacular wildlife – but the islands are home to more indigenous species than the Galapagos Islands. Both the Cayman Islands’ National Trust and the Central Caribbean Marine Institute work to protect both the natural environment on land and sea as well as the incredible number of different species of wildlife.
Take a tour through the Cayman mangroves and see the incredible coastal birds, iguanas and anemones. For wildlife lovers, seeing the endangered blue iguanas of the Queen Elizabeth Botanic Park II, hiking through the ancient forests of the Mastic Trail and swimming with the stingrays at the Stingray City sandbar is a must.
Be as active and adventurous as you want on the Cayman Islands and experience a thrilling range of activities. See the incredible underwater marine life with over 365 dive sites to choose from, or snorkel in the shallow clear warm seas from the beach. Thrill-seekers will love kite-surfing or wind-surfing and for a night-time adventure, take a fully-guided kayak tour from Grand Cayman’s Rum Point and experience one of the world’s most amazing natural phenomena – bioluminescence.
With more than 200 restaurants, the Cayman Islands offer unique culinary experiences. Offering mouth-watering farm-to-table cuisine, many restaurants feature menus serving only locally-sourced organic fruit, vegetables and herbs. Local dishes include freshly cooked fried fish, conch stew in a harbour-front restaurant or Cayman Style Beef in a local restaurant in Bodden Town. Try ‘Swanky’, Caymanian lemonade made with brown sugar, and finish with Cassava Heavy Cake, a famous local dessert. You can look forward to unsurpassed service, award-winning chefs and an eclectic array of different culinary options.
