Flights to Cayman Islands | Compare Low-Cost Fares at Skyscanner

Lying in the middle of the Caribbean Sea between Central America, Cuba, and Jamaica is an archipelago composed of three isles. These comprise the Cayman Islands, a place of great natural beauty. Popular for vacationing Americans, those from other countries will also be charmed by the white sandy beaches, clear waters, and lush greenery. A variety of fun activities also await here, making it a place of adventures for those out to explore the sights and culture of the islands.

A well-known tax haven, Cayman Islands has more registered businesses than citizens. Although once blacklisted for harbouring accounts of alleged tax evaders, the country has since repaired its reputation in the financial world. It is now a travel destination, not just for business and banking, but also for beaches and nature trips where one can bask in the fresh air, waves, and the warm climate.

What to see & do

The first few destinations to think about going to the Cayman Islands are the beaches. Governor's Beach in George Town makes a semi-private retreat when one is tired from mingling with the crowds at the Seven Mile Beach. The place makes an excellent antidote for those looking for some peace and quiet. From here, tourists can move to Sandy Point in Little Cayman, where one can find a spot of reef-protected area, which is rarely visited by other tourists. A tiny pier is here, where one can have a boat out for those interested in boating.

Those who want to view unique natural landmarks, on the other hand, can look forward to visiting the Pirate Caves where smugglers apparently hid their loot in the past. There is also a mini zoo nearby, where one will find freshwater stingrays and other creatures. Some of the caves are also eerily beautiful, seeming to glow with the treasure said to be hidden here. There is also the Bat Cave to visit here, where various creatures live. Although not a hideaway of the comic character Batman, the place is fascinating for its natural hurricane shelter and odd geologic features. After looking around, tourists can check out Own Island near the Little Cayman. This small deserted island is a delight to explore for those looking for unspoilt lands and is an ideal venue for picnics.

After island hopping and exploring various parts of the islands, tourists can go back on land and explore the structures. In Little Cayman, for instance, is the National Trust Visitors Centre, a combination of museum and cafe where one can also get tourism information and purchase souvenirs at the gift shop. From here, tourists can head to the back, where the Booby Pond Nature Reserve is. It is home of one of the country's breeding populations of red-footed boobies and a large colony of swooping frigate birds. After exploring, tourists can turn to Cayman Brac Museum, which is housed in a white-and-blue house on the coastal road to Stake Bay. Inside here are exhibits on the life for the early settlers on the island before the arrival of the colonisers. The Little Cayman Museum can also be added to the itinerary, as it contains fine artefacts and beach treasures.

How to get around within Cayman Islands

Other than the main public transportation in the main island, other ways of getting around are sparse. Those staying in the Georgetown area can go on public minibuses to visit different parts of town. One can also rent bicycles, which are available in all three islands. For convenience, tourists should consider hiring a car to make it easier to check out various landmarks.
