George Town, Grand Cayman
Laid Back Luxury
Grand Cayman strikes the perfect balance between glitzy glamor and easygoing island life. You can hit the famous Seven Mile Beach and just chill with a Cayman Mama in hand, swim with stingrays at Stingray City, or treat yourself to a little retail therapy in George Town at some of the best designer shops in the world.
Things To Do
Swim with Sea Turtles
The whole family can swim alongside sea turtles and tropical fish at the Cayman Turtle Centre. This award-winning wildlife park provides its guests with a chance to come face-to-face with some of the most remarkable and ancient animals on earth. Or wander around the Caribbean Free Flight Aviary and meet exotic birds, including Grand Cayman’s national bird, the Cayman Parrot.
Stroll Seven Mile Beach
Seven Mile Beach (SMB) is actually five-and-a-half miles of coral sands and crystal-clear shoreline. It’s peppered with restaurants, bars, upscale resorts and is home to many of the Caribbean’s most luxurious properties. SMB was named one of the region’s Ultimate Beaches by Caribbean Travel + Life.
Tee Off in Paradise
Hit the green at the North Sound Club, the only 18-hole championship golf course on the Cayman Islands (formerly known as The Links at Safehaven). Designed by Englishman Roy Case in 1994, this golf paradise has beautifully manicured fairways edged by palm trees with generous greens protected by white powder sand bunkers.
Get to Know the Locals
Take your adventure underwater and mingle with southern stingrays in Stingray City’s sparkling, calm waters.
Locally caught fish is the main attraction in Grand Cayman cuisine. You’ll find plenty of shellfish served marinated, in fritters or in hearty chowders. Rum is the drink of choice, so make sure you try the Cayman Mama, a local signature cocktail made with light and coconut rums, banana liqueur, Triple Sec, pineapple juice and a dash of Grenadine or strawberry syrup. Cheers!
