5 Reasons to Visit The Cayman Islands
by
One of my favorite childhood commercials growing up was the Cayman Island commercial. The water looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to belt out the song at the end “The Cay mann Islands”! Cayman Island deals are usually rare but when they come around it’s definitely a must visit.

Located in the Caribbean, the cluster of islands is situated right below Cuba and are surrounded by stunning coastline. Grand Cayman is the largest and most known of the islands. Technically a resort town that is owned by the United Kingdom, visitors come here for the tropical vibe, exquisite diving, and the laid back beach life. If that doesn’t sound good enough, here are 5 more reasons why you should visit the Cayman Islands.

The Underwater Life

turtle-123284__180With tons of colorful coral, fish, and stingrays, the Cayman islands are a hot spot for divers and snorkelers. In fact, visitors have the option of swimming alongside wild stingrays in the wildlife park. There are over 300 dive sites around the island too and most of them have fantastic water conditions.

The Turtle Farm is one of the islands most sort out attractions. The farm specializes in controlled breeding and is the only nature preserve to do so.


                                                                   The Beaches

There are over 10 different beaches that allow you to soak in the sun, swim or try out some water sports. Try Rum Point Beach, Barefoot Beach or Smith Cove. One of the most pristine is Seven Mile Beach and since there is so many, they tend to be less crowded than the typical Caribbean Island. Seven Mile Beach is place to hit if you’re looking for water sports anything from parasailing to scuba diving.

 The Fresh Seafood

The fish dishes around the Cayman Island restaurants are everything you would expect from an island nation. The islands have a long history of fishing and over years it seems that the restaurants have perfected their fare. Chefs from Miami and other US states have moved to the Cayman Islands, everyone will recommend a fancy restaurant, I I have something better! Vivine’s Kitchen, food comes out of her kitchen literally. The best authentic food, conch, and welk, goat stew, sea turtle stew, fritter, OXTAILS and more. You can relax in the back and eat with a mix of locals and tourist.
Her home is located in the East End but any local can tell you how to get there. Oxtail Love


The Botanical Park

Named Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, but referred to by the locals as ” The Botanical Park” is a good place to get off the resort and more into nature. Discover the flora and fauna of the islands including the Blue Iguana and Ghost Orchid. Much of what you’ll see is rare and endemic to the islands themselves.
