All the historic tourist spots here are located close to each other so there is no problem of taking a cab since you can just walk. The historic National Museum is on the main street and the Historic 1700's Stepwell is a block away. And, also the Baymore Mall is close by.

Since the island is so small, the main tourist attraction at Georgetown is also where the seaport is. So you can see cranes and truck at the main tourist area. It's also an industrial town/tourist area.

The islands are surrounded with beautiful beaches and bays. The other side of the Georgetown are mostly expensive houses (mansions) of which the beaches are exclusive. From the seaport to the town of Georgetown, I saw some beautiful beaches.
From the side of the seaport, I also some beach goers on the beach just sunbathing.

From what I've read/seen in the last few years it seems that Gr. Cayman Is. has become a fancy resort for quite a few monied people. There was a time when the whole place was very off the beaten path. As a teen (with my adventurous grandparents) I remember a simple wooden hotel in Georgetown (only one), some paved roads, but mostly dirt ones, mosquitos everywhere, and driving around the island to see occasional groups of small, poor, housing and lots of 'jungleish' terrain. Oh yeah, and turtle....turtle soup, turtle meat, turtle everything (and more mosquitos). I don't mean for the above description to sound negative...even as a teenager I found the experience quite interesting and have fond memories of the week there. (took these-sadly, the only pics remaining-with a Poloroid Swinger-anybody remember those?)

This is a beautiful beach. It is called Cemetary Reef Beach. You have to walk through the cemetery to get there, but it is truly beautiful. It isn't crowded, but don't expect amenities. Bring your snorkel gear and head out to the awesome reefs. Ask a local for directions. It is along 7 Mile Beach.

We took a day to visit Rum Point, which is located on the Eastern tip of the North Sound. The drive took us about 45 minutes from Seven Mile Beach. Once there we grabbed some lunch at the grill and headed out to the beach.....I thought the beach scenery was better than that of Seven Mile Beach. We relaxed in the hammocks.....beware though of falling asleep and spending the rest of the day lying in a hammock.

The Botanic Garden on Grand Cayman was really new when my family was visiting the islands, but it was still cool. It was a really nice and exotic break from the beaches (not as if you needed a break from the beaches), but was really cool -- exotic trees, big iguanas, lots of flowers ... ! Worth a trip to the center of the island, definitely ...

Cemetery Beach is just a 5 minute drive north of 7-Mile Beach, in West Bay. It's very quiet and not crowded at all. The marked path to the beach is to the right of the cemetary. Please do not walk through the cemetery as this is a sign of disrespect. Park on the side of the road in front of the cemetery. There is also an omnibus stop right across the street.

Most people miss most of the Island in general. Usually people just stay on Seven Mile Beach or there abouts and don't go anywhere else. Well, just hop in a car and drive... there are only about two main roads so it's hard to get lost.
If you like Snorkeling go to Queens Highway... Just pull off to the side of the road, grab your fins and snorkle and hop in the water. You have to go pretty far out to see the good stuff (or, well, anything at all) but the reef out there is one of the best on the island. The only problem is it is very close to the surface at low tide, so becareful and take pictures!

One of the highlights of our trip was a trip underwater in the Atlantis Research Sub. Not cheap but really worth every moment gliding to depths of up to 800 feet between rocks and coral. The sub had plenty of porthole windows for the passengers to get a comfortable view.
