When most people think of vacationing in the Cayman Islands, it is Grand Cayman that they are thinking of.  This, the largest and most populous of the chain, is constantly overrun with tourists in search of their dream Caribbean vacation.  The island is so diverse that it is in fact possible that everyone who visits can find a place to call their own, whether it is local culture they hope to learn about, or natural scenery to submerge themselves in. 


Rum Point

You will discover a large selection of beaches to choose from on the island. Regardless of whether you're looking forward to people watching, or you prefer having more of the sand to yourself, you can find what you want. Click on the beach names to read a detailed article concerning that beach.

If you are looking for a place to snorkel, a place where that's an option is Rum Point. On the north coast of Grand Cayman, facing Cuba, lies bustling Rum Point. Here, flat white sands backed by shade trees lead down to the calm blue sea.

A second option worth considering is The Blowholes. The blowholes is a thin stretch of beach on Grand Cayman's less popular south shore. If you're looking for a beach trip with a more culturally distinct island experience, head to the more urban beaches near George Town.

Water Cay: Water Cay is often accessed by boat, docking along the sandbar. You can also drive here easily, up Rum Point Drive, then left at Water Cay Road.

These are just a few of the options. Visit this page if you're seeking additional facts.

Landmark Attractions

Cayman Islands National Museum

National Trust Visitor Center is a museum just on the edge of Grand Cayman. The Centre is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Another landmark that often intrigues visitors is National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. It is Seven Mile Beach, in western Grand Cayman. The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands is a multi-media gallery, featuring a number of works in sculpture, paint, photography, and more.
