Cayman Islands Off The Beaten Path

  • Walking distance from one historic spot...

    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.

  • The seaport at Georgetown

    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 beaches of Cayman Islands

    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,...

  • Secluded Beach with Great Snorkeling

    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.

  • A Trip To The Other End Of The Island

    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...

  • Explore a Jungle

    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, West Bay

    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...

  • Queen's Highway

    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...

    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.

    Grand Cayman's East End is much less traveled than the Georgetown area. Take a late afternoon drive up the coast and end up north at Rum Point to catch the sunset. Pictured here is a blow-hole on the coral shelf on the East End.

    The Cayman Island turtle farm is an interesting place to spend an hour or two. There's nothing else like it and kids love it.

    The Stingray Brewery is the Caymans' own microbrewery. Admittedly the beer isn't that great (haha!), but some of my favorite mementos were purchased at the brewery on Red Bay Road (east of Georgetown), which offers free samples of their product! Tours are given of the brewery as well.

    The secluded beaches just off of the 'Queen Elizabeth' monument. There is a rock pedestal and a plaque commemorating Queen Elizabeth that the locals know of. Just the other side of the road is a small cut though vegetation that leads to a pristine beach with beautiful water and shade from palm trees. No one else around. Only truly secluded spot we...

    Be lucky enough to watch a cayman snowfall. A cayman snowfalls happens when thousands and thousands of tiny white buterflies fly from the seagrape trees lining along the Seven Mile Beach across West Bay Road and into the bushes.

    For those who have seen everything, still it is left the North wall. More moved away of the habitual sites, it is seldom visited by divers. It is not rare to cross rays leopard or sharks...At night, a world different, full of colour and life, offers all the possibilities for the divers. The wall begins to the 25 meters, and low until losing itself...
