Cayman Islands Holidays

On a Cayman Island holiday, divers light upon habitually calm waters – even when conditions for other Caribbean dive sites are unsuitable. Newlyweds find their heaven in all inclusive resorts that deliver luxury upon luxury and old world longing adventurers can explore the last vestiges of the wild Caribbean on Brac and Little – the little brothers of Cayman Island.

Holidays in Cayman Islands

The most popular Cayman holiday activity is diving to see the likes green turtles, sea horses, nurse sharks, upside down jellyfish and bioluminescence. The smaller and under developed Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are have free nature tours of their premises’ thriving with endemic orchids, green herons, snowy egrets and bats to name a few. Back on Cayman Island, George Town is about as cosmopolitan as they come, a result of tax-free laws and magnetising beauty – about half the population here is from elsewhere. All inclusive luxury resorts play host to honeymooners kicking things off in style and families on that once in a lifetime holiday. A typical Cayman holiday is spent doing a yoga or Taichi session on the beach before taking coffee in a waterside cafe. Swim or learn water sports in the afternoon like jet skiing, parasailing and paddle boarding and at night hang with locals with cups of island distilled Seven Fathoms spirits and rum punch in Bodden Town, East End and Cayman Brac.

Essential Information

Caribbean Beaches

The beaches of the Cayman Islands are well seasoned match makers. Between them, they must have overseen more weddings than even the most veteran of clergy members and more proposals than sunsets. There’s something about a Caribbean getaway that beckons honeymooners and beloveds. The ace up the Cayman sleeve is its unique locality. A westerly longitude and pigeonholed in the armpit of Cuba, they’re privy to docile waves that gently sculpt the beaches, rarely feeling the effects of hurricanes that arrive from the east. There are the furtive segments of shoreline of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac’s coastline and the celebrity Seven Mile Beach of the namesake island. Many hotels provide their own private beaches for guests in all inclusive deals and some are hotspots for certain species, like Starfish Point.

Below Sea Level

Lurking beneath the surface a stone’s throw from all those resplendent beaches is the Caribbean talisman – diving. The placid nature of the water means that aquatic activities are rarely hindered unfavourable conditions, like visibility. This makes them well suited to experts and beginners alike. Sites of note are the diving walls around Little Cayman and Dolphin Cove north of George Town. Stingray city on the northern side of Cayman Island has to be one of the Caribbean’s most enchanting experiences. The rays associate the sound of boats with food and unabashedly swim right up to tourists standing on the sandbank in three feet of water to score morsels of squid. Certified divers should visit the deeper sandbank further out. It’s quieter and the animals, some as big as kitchen tables, behave less like pets as they glide past, their pectoral find billowing like marine travel cloaks.

Caribbean Caves

Water is the resounding attraction here but this Caribbean island has been working on something extra special for some time. Spend one day out of sight of all that tranquillity in the Crystal Caves of Old Man Bay. Wonder through the maw of these caverns with a set of stalactites and stalagmites for teeth. The corrugated walls of these subterranean chambers are over 25 million years old, formed gradually by the drip-drip of rain water seeping through the ceilings. Back out in daylight are more species of flora and fauna than you can find on the Galapagos. Birders come here to spot some 230 species, there’s blue iguana’s basking along woodland trails and the world’s smallest butterfly, the pygmy blue.

Best Time to Travel

The Cayman Islands have a tropical wet/dry climate. Wet season is from May to October and the dry season is from November to April. Winter months are much more pleasant during the winter when the humidity is lower but accommodation costs are much higher as this is the high season. This also the best time for diving. For cheap hotel rates and the chance to snag bargains, go for March to June when temperatures are revving up and tourist crowds are dwindling. Hurricane season is June to November but being in the western part of the Caribbean, the islands are sheltered.
