Grand Cayman Island Attactions
Enjoy Our Diverse & Enchanting Island
Grand Cayman, while a small island, is diverse in its topography, landscape, and the different kinds of attractions you can see and experience.
A Grand Cayman vacation isn’t complete without a trip to Rum Point on the picturesque North Side of the island. The clear and shallow water is perfect for children while adults have access to the top Caribbean watersport operators and beach bars on the island. There are change rooms, showers, huts, hammocks, volleyball nets, and more, so you can be as active or laid back as you choose.
George Town serves as the capital of the Cayman Islands; and with a population close to 29,000, it’s the second largest city in the British Overseas Territories. While small by North American standards, many of the around-600 bank and trust companies in the Cayman Islands are located here as are the Caymanian government offices.
Bodden Town, the first Cayman capital, was once ravaged by pirates long ago. This former village is home to the remains of a 6 km wall and cannon. There are many other historic sites here as well: the Guard House, a monument to Queen Victoria, and Gun Square with two 18th century cannons.
Is any trip to the Cayman Islands truly fulfilled until you’ve seen a Blue Iguana? This endangered species is only found on Grand Cayman, and is strictly protected by Cayman law. Only about 150 mature Blue Iguanas remain in the wild, found exclusively in the dense interior of the eastern district of Grand Cayman.
