Cayman Islands

Can anyone give some suggestions on what to do/see/eat while in the Cayman Islands?  We'll be there for a week.  Thanks!!

Re: Cayman Islands

  • Go to Seven Mile Beach.
  • We went 2 years ago and stayed on Seven Mile Beach at the Westin.  Definitely snorkle with the stingrays - that was my favorite part of the whole week.  Also, rent a car for a few days and go to Hell, the turtle farm, Rum Point, and the botanic garden.  You can go to Georgetown, but I wasn't a big fan of it.  For dining, we loved the Calypso Grill.  Also, there's a place directly across the street from the Westin that's a great lunch spot that's relatively inexpensive - I think it's called Eats, but can't remember.  Have fun!
  • Seven Mile Beach is gorgeous. If you're feeling adventurous, you can also go to Cemetary beach which is really secluded, but you have to walk through a cemetary to get there. Snorkeling is great.The stringray bar and the turtle farm are other popular attractions.

  • My top two suggestions are the Stingray City snorkeling trip, then spend the afternoon and have lunch at Rum Point (where the trip leaves from). Also, have lunch at Vivine's Kitchen one day - it's great local food, served out of a woman's house. The menu changes daily and it's delicious.

    Other restaurants I like are Portofino and Lighthouse. There's also really good snorkeling in front of the Queen's Monument - just park on the side of the road and walk out to the water.

    Another thing you might look into is if you can get a fishing trip arranged. My in-laws did that once through our resort, and they caught a giant wahoo. The captain (Captain Herman I believe) then brought it back to our room and prepared it for us - it was the best fish I ever tasted, and we had leftovers for days. It was great!

    Also, a sunset sail is always nice! We've done a couple of those.

    Enjoy your trip!

  • Yes, Seven Mile Beach is beautiful.  We also did the Turtle Farm tour.  It was definitely worth it - we loved it :)  You will see a lot of people walking around (the locals) trying to get you to tour with them.  We got our tour for $20 a person and it included: Turtle Farm, Rum Cake Factory, seeing the oldest house on the island, Seven Mile Beach, etc.

  • Grand Cayman is one of my favorite Caribbean ports of call.  Here are some things that we enjoyed doing while in port: 

    Stingray City!!  One of the most awesome experiences ever as you swim/snorkel with the stingrays, hold them, and feed them.

    7 Mile Beach.  Gorgeous and relaxing.  Enough said. 

    Hell.  Just a fun stop.  Make sure you send a postcard from Hell and take a picture underneath the big sign :).  The rocks are really interesting. 

    Turtle Farm.  See lots and lots of turtles at the hatchery and hold them, too.
