Cayman Islands is known to have the best beaches along the Caribbean which is why tourists continue to flock in this enchanting place. Jamaica, Cuba, and Miami are the surrounding countries of the island. The Cayman Islands is divided into three major islands namely, Little Cayman, Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
Grand Cayman is the biggest and therefore has the most number of inhabitants among the three. It has a magnificent beach that is surrounded by crystal clear water with various marine life and
stunning coral reefs. A lot of people visit this island for its very famous Seven Mile Beach. You can also visit the unusual Hell rock formations that were formed through time.
At Bodden Town, you can also see a stone wall measuring around 4 miles, known as Grand Cayman’s Wall of China, which was constructed to guard the inhabitants from pirates. The Cayman Turtle Farm, near the Seven Mile Beach, is also a place frequently visited by the tourists.
There are even more to see at the island’s capital, George Town, such as traditional and modern architectures, National Museum, Pedro St. James Castle, Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, etc. Tourists continue to flock in this island because of the number of attractions it can offer. In spite of being somehow developed, the serenity and the appeal of Grand Cayman are definitely not lost.
The name of Cayman Brac was derived from a cliff with 140 ft high above the sea. Brac in Gaelic means “bluff”.
The population of the island is lesser than Grand Cayman since its size is roughly only about 12 miles in length and a little more than a mile in width.
A lot of divers visit the island because of the numerous shipwrecks around. Cliffs, caves, and a park that houses unique birds are also worth-visiting.
Little Cayman is the smallest island among the three with 10 miles in length and about 2 miles in width. It is situated in the southeast of Cayman Brac with only around 170 inhabitants. It is a popular place for fishing.
This small island is famous for its diving spots as well, like Bloody Bay Wall, Jackson Point, Cumber’s Caves, etc. It also has other attractions to offer such as Tarpon Lake, Booby Pond Nature Reserve, Nancy’s Cup of Tea, Point of Sand, and a lot more.
As seen above, visitors in Cayman Islands will never run out of places to go to, whether you are a sea lover or not. Aside from scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing, you can also play golf at the Britannia Golf Club in Grand Cayman and have fun with motorsports at the Family Recreation and Motorsports Park situated in Breakers or Lakeview Raceway located in George Town.
All these surely explain why almost 70% of Cayman Islands’ GDP comes from its tourism.
