    Favorite thing: Going out onto the open waters is fun, glass bottom boats aren't all they are cracked up to be, because if you are moving all you see is a bunch of bubbles under the boat....this picture was taken while on a glass bottom boat

    Looking for some cheap snacks & drinks

    Favorite thing: Head to a local Foster's Food Fair Supermarket! You can find one on West Bay Road near Hyatt Regency Hotel. We stopped in and picked up plenty of snacks for the beach/pool and to keep in the room. We also grabbed a bunch of iced tea 6 packs and water bottles, they came in handly so we didn't have to hit the ridiculously expensive mini-bar!

    Playing With Clown Fish On The Amazing Reef

    The beautiful reef.

    Favorite thing: My favourite thing about Grand Cayman would have to be renting snorkelling equipment and swimming on the reef. The water is a beautiful blue and feels like heaven and sun warmed skin.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory would be watching the clown fish play around my feet. If are completely still the fish aren't scared of you and will play around your feet. It's a definite breathtaking experience.

    Favorite thing: Possibly the best standard of living of the islands in the Caribbean. This might be perhaps due to the numerous foreign banks and investments from elsewhere. Nice medium to high quality shopping and touristy restaurants in town. Lots of activities on, in, and under the water. Numerous hotels of moderate to high quality yet still affordable. Popular place to fly into for a long weekend, or stop for the day by cruiseships. Still a British flavor on the island. Great rum, rum cakes, jewelry, perfumes, and usual fare for shopping.

    LIFES A BEACH

    any beach you like......

    Favorite thing: All the beaches on Grand Cayman are public ones
    This means that even if you are staying in the worst, cheapest or tattyest place on the island you can go and sit on the beach outside the largest grandest hotel and dream........

    Wander on your own

    Favorite thing: Use the local bus....It's convenient, relatively timely, and very cheap. Why pay $35-$50 (US) for a "3-hour all inclusive tour of the famous sites" of which you may only like one or two, when you can see the same sites in about the same amount of time (faster if you want) for about $5.00 or less using the local transport. Just check a map for where you want to go.

    The beach life is a must!

    by LysDor Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: All sorts of water activities especially snorkeling are to be tryed out.
    ...............
    I went everyday (several times a day!!!) for a snorkeling swim and found MY SPECIAL SPOT. Unfortunately there was also a beautiful colored tropical fish with whom I shared the area. This fish was very territorial and as soon as I arrived on top of him he became very nervous - swimming faster and stopping underneath me to have a better look who was disturbing his peace!
    As it was FLAT he had to tilt on its side to see me - that looked truly funny but as he kept on doing it several times I got the message and left HIS SPOT for that time but I must admit I had to go back there every day to see my *pet-fish* even if he had a different opinion about my presence there!!

    Fondest memory: Snorkeling with the fish is always fun.For some reason if you brought a piece of bread into the water they would go nuts and a giant school would surround you.

    Westin beach area

    Fondest memory: It was really quiet around the Westin's beach area...as you can see in the picture, there really isn't anyone around.
