Everyone needs a getaway from time to time. You might want to go on a romantic escape with your partner, a fun-filled break with your friends or a family vacation. Even a solo trip can be good for you once in a while. The world is a big place, making the list of destinations incredibly long. While there might be countless locations on your vacation wish-list, here are a few reasons why the Cayman Islands should make the cut.
Located in the Caribbean, the three islands that make up the Caymans offer sun-soaked beaches and turquoise waters. This makes them perfect for those who are seeking a relaxing break away from their hectic lives. However, there are more than just white sands to see, with each island offering its own natural beauty gems. For keen divers, why not explore the famous Devil’s Grotto?
Situated on Grand Cayman, this underwater maze is full of sea life and unique rock formations. Or swim in Bioluminescent Bay at night for an extraordinary experience.
All good vacations come with a range of delectable menus to try. Due to being a set of islands, it’s no surprise that there is plenty on offer for those who are fond of seafood. With fresh fish caught daily, it certainly is a perfect spot for dining out on the waterfront. Of course, there are still plenty of places that offer alternatives to fish if that’s not your thing. Whatever you fancy, there will be plenty of traditional Caymanian dishes to try.
For those who don’t want to spend the entirety of their vacation sprawled out on a beach, there’s still plenty to do. For keen divers, there are many coves and reefs to explore. You can even discover the shipwreck of an old US Navy submarine. If you like being in the water, don’t forget to get tickets for the Stingray City tours.
There’s also a concrete sculpture park and other galleries to wander around for those with an interest in art. Not to mention the tour of the Cayman Spirits Co. distillery – a must for lovers of rum. There certainly are plenty of things to do scattered over these islands that will keep you and your family occupied.
For vacationers that like to know the history of where they’re staying, the Cayman offer plenty of museums to enlighten you. The islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1503, although it appears no one settled on the island until much later in the 1600s. One particular spot where tourists with a passion for history like to visit is the Pedro St. James Castle. Located on Grand Cayman, this building is the longest standing stone structure on the island.
Although there are many other beautiful islands in the Caribbean and around the globe that are worth visiting, don’t miss out on the wonderful things that the Caymans have to offer. There truly is something for everyone, making them a perfect vacation destination.
