Things to do in Cayman Islands

Surrounded by the crystal blue Caribbean Sea its no wonder that many of the island’s most exciting activities center on the water. The Cayman islands are home to some of the world’s best scuba diving spots and Orange Canyon, Devil’s Grotto and Captain Keith Tibbetts wreck are just three of the many worth visiting. For younger travelers and less experienced divers, snorkeling, a trip to Stingray City, and an afternoon fishing for blue marlin are fun water pursuits and great things to do on the Cayman Islands.

For those wishing to enjoy the view of the water while keeping their feet planted firmly on solid ground, relaxing on the soft white sands of the Cayman Islands’ many beaches is a worthwhile afternoon endeavor. Smith Cove on Grand Cayman, Owen Island on Little Cayman and the Southwest Coast of Cayman Brac are some of the must-see beaches.

Wondering what to do on the Cayman Islands away from the beach? A tour around cultural George Town will please any history buffs. For gardening enthusiasts, a walk through Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is a must. Those looking to get back to nature can explore the Mastic Trail and follow the 2-mile path taken by the island’s first settlers.

Other things to do on the Cayman Islands include playing golf, shopping at one of the large malls or horseback riding along Seven-Mile Beach. Between the island’s unique culture and the many water pursuits you will never be left wondering what to do on the Cayman Islands.
