    Pose Like the Devil

    Stephen Playing Devil

    We didn't see the devil in Hell. Perhaps he was out for the moment - or just wearing one of his many disguises.

    However, on the viewing platform which overlooks the Hell rock formations there is a cutout picture of the devil where you can insert your own head for a photo. You will find it at the end of a short boardwalk, behind the Hell Post Office. Few who visit Hell can resist this hellish opportunity. Best of all - it's free.

    Ironshore formations in Hell
    2 more images

    Hell, Grand Cayman, derives it's name from a natural area of black, limestone formations, about an acre in size - more or less. The rocks, called "Ironshore," are found in many locations on Grand Cayman. It is said that the largest and most spectacular forms of ironshore are found in Hell.

    Visitors are not allowed in amongst the rocky formations. However, there is a wooden viewing platform behind the Hell Post Office.

    Early residents on Grand Cayman Island named the community for these formations which they imagined to resemble the charred landscape of Hades. We didn't try it, but it is said that if a pebble is thrown out into the formation, it sometimes echoes amongst the limestone peaks and valleys, sounding as if it were falling all the way down to Hell.

    Mail a Postcard from Hell

    Karen at the Hell Post Office

    If you go to Hell you MUST send a postcard to someone with the postmark to prove that you were there. I have a favorite Aunt who lives in Atlanta and has collected postcards all her life. Now Aunt Fay has a postcard from Hell - sent by her loving nephew and his lovely wife.

    We learned that home mail delivery is not available in the Cayman Islands, so several small post offices are scattered throughout the islands with post office boxes available to the local residents. This is a real working post office and not a tourist attraction, although many tourists mail cards from here. They also offer a variety of colorful Cayman Islands stamps for collectors.

    Oh yea, on your postcard be sure to include the line: "Wish you were here."

    What's a trip to Hell without visiting Ivan's Gift shop? To the rear, is a field of Hell Stone. Ivan dresses everyday like the Devil, he even has post cards of his travels! Don't be scared to ask him for a pic. This is also the place to send a postcard postmarked from Hell.

    Hell's horizon

    Hell is pretty small and you can see it relatively quickly. Basically you can walk around for a short while and snap your photos. But I think the best thing to do is to send your friends/family a postcard that will be from and officially stamped as being from Hell.

    Black brimstone looking rocks are what gave Hell it's name. They are quite lovely to look at but besides take a few pictures and buying a postcard, there isn't a Hell of a lot to do!
