Activities and Amenities

After a day of hitting the beach, nothing hits the spot like a great meal and a good time. You’ll find both at The Reef, where fine and casual dining are yours and every night’s a party waiting to happen.

The Reef has long been the home of the legendary Barefoot Man, but we are pleased to announce that for the upcoming months JR Douglas now also call The Reef home !

Please note that, in keeping with the relaxed nature of Cayman, these guys don’t work all the time, but we have pinned them down to a schedule for the next few months to help you plan ahead.

Barefoot Man

He's to the Caribbean what Jimmy Buffet is to Key West, but everyone knows him only as "Barefoot." Barefoot is the biggest "B" to hit the island since Blackbeard. No visit to the island is complete without a visit to The Reef to see Barefoot Man offering his unique brand of humorous musical relief and relaxation.

Barefoot can be seen our air conditioned Pelican’s Reef from 7pm to 10 pm, Tuesday and Thursdays. Each evening Barefoot plays we offer a three course gourmet dinner for only CI 39.50… and of course you get to see Barefoot play too! Please see our calendar below for Barefoot’s summer schedule.

JR Douglas

Local entertainer and DJ JR Douglas will get the weekend started with his infectious style of island vibes at the Rusty Pelican on Wednesday nights. Come and join us for happy hour drinks and cool music!


This acoustic duo is known for their original work as well as their covers of some greats such as David Grey and Dave Matthews Band. Come and relax by the beach bar with a Cayman Lemonade while Hi-Tide played their unique Caribbean tunes.
