Booby Pond Nature Reserve

The Booby Pond Nature Reserve became recognized as a protected area in 1994, a title that allows for research and development to promote the health of the area.

Booby Pond Nature Reserve spans 334 acres. On dry land sits a Visitor's Centre, which is recognizable by the gingerbread trim. This is where guests can stop in to learn about the importance of land conservation and the bird life that inhabits this particular spot.

Booby Pond Nature Reserve is home to the only breeding colony of Frigate birds in the Cayman Islands, and 2,500 Red-Footed Boobies nest here in the spring. Guests who stop by the Visitor's Centre can go up to the observation gallery and use telescopes to observe the landscape.
