If you are looking for a perfect tropical vacation, this is the right destination for you. Consisting of three islands: Great Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, this Caribbean jewel is famous for its sunny beaches, rich flora and fauna, generous inhabitants, great accommodation, year-round sunny weather, and much, much more. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider visiting these beautiful islands.



Food


Enjoy a broad list of culinary specialties this beautiful place has to offer. Cayman Islands are recognized as a real seafood hub, so fresh fish is something you have to try while staying here. But whether you are a seafood lover, or you prefer other kinds of food, you will definitely find something that suits your taste buds. Caymanians have a special appreciation for conch, a type of sea snail, and recommend that you try it in a stew or a soup. Some other famous Cayman Islands dishes include Johnny cake (deep-fried dumplings), Cayman-style beef, coconut shrimp, turtle stew, etc.

Beaches


The beaches of the Cayman Islands are not as crowded as the beaches of many other Caribbean destinations. They are perfect for you if you want to find a secluded place by the sea and enjoy the sun. Seven Mile Beach stands out among the others and is often listed among the most beautiful Caribbean beaches. It is a seven mile long sandy beach at the western part of the Grand Cayman Island. Besides its beauty, it offers many activities like jet skiing, volleyball, paddle boarding, etc. There are also many other equally beautiful beaches that you should visit, like the Rum Point, Cemetery Beach, Smith Barcadere, etc.



Diving


If you are a keen underwater explorer, you should make the most of the Grand Cayman scuba diving experience. Wreck divers can visit a beautiful artificial reef 800 yards off  Seven Mile Beach. The former WWII ship USS Kittiwake was purposely sunk here in 2011 and it’s been a popular destination ever since. Wall divers will enjoy the undersea mountain range that surrounds the island. The coral-carpeted walls are visible around 100 feet in depth and provide insight into the beautiful coral flora and fauna. Stingray City and Stingray Alley in the North Sound of the Grand Cayman provide you with the unique experience of swimming and diving with rays that come and go every day.

Beautiful weather


Year-round summer makes this Caribbean heaven a great place to visit at any time of year. Temperatures almost never go under 80° Fahrenheit, so you can visit the beach anytime you want. It is recommended to visit the Cayman Islands during the dry season (from November to May) to avoid the rainy season with its higher temperatures, higher humidity and occasional hurricanes.



Caymankind
