A total of 10 square miles of unspoiled natural scenery sums up the appeal of Little Cayman.  A popular dive destination and place to get away, there are miles of beaches and nature reserves from one end of the island to the other.  One thing many tourists don't expect to find are cultural attractions, but there are a few like the Little Cayman Museum, which will easily hold the attention of anyone interested in local history. 

Beaches

You will find a large selection of beaches to enjoy on the island. If you enjoy having lots of space around you, you will be pleased to know that some of these beaches are fairly secluded and free from development. Click on the beach names for detailed information about that part of the coast.

Sandy Point: On a clear day you can see the nearby island of Cayman Brac from this beach. If you like privacy and seclusion, this is a great beach for you.

A second option worth considering is Bloody Bay Beach. Bloody Bay Beach is actually located within a marine park of the same name. As mentioned, it is a great spot for diving and visitors will often encounter, in addition to coral reef and tropical fish, sting rays, turtles, and even sharks.

Owen Island: This island is not far off Little Cayman's coast, so to get here you could rent a sea kayak and paddle right out to it.

These examples are only some of the options worth consideration If you'd like to dig deeper, you can get more details by following this link.

Museums

In case you enjoy expanding your knowledge of unfamiliar places and cultures, you might enjoy visiting a museum during your time on Little Cayman.

Many travelers choose to visit National Trust House. It is found in Blossom Village, Little Cayman. The house is a traditional two story Caymanian home set among both dry and wetlands, and is known to have been living in during the 18th and 19th centuries. The tour gives guests an oral history of the area and the families who lived there, and there are many genuine artifacts to view that were once owned by the Watler Family who lived in the home for 77 years.

Another common landmark for vacationers is Little Cayman Museum. It is located in Blossom Village, Little Cayman. Make an appointment to visit the Little Cayman Museum on Thursday and Friday between the hours of 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.
