The Cayman Islands are one of the most picturesque locations in the Caribbean, and popular amongst vacationers and cruise-goers alike. From swimming ponies to bioluminescent bays, there is much to do on Grand Cayman and there is something for everyone. Hop on your boat rental in Caymans and see for yourself why the Cayman Islands are regarded as the world’s friendliest islands and one of the best destinations for family travel. Things to do in Grand Cayman include a bucket list of experiences for everyone in your family.
Below are just a few incredible activities that you and your family should be part of while vacationing in the Caymans:
Swim with Ponies & Turtles – Ponies, and especially the pampered ones, love to swim. Ride along the white sand and then switch to riding bareback as the horses lead you into the water. You will be able to see, enjoy and experience how ponies swim starting at about the 3-minute mark. Thereafter, you can visit the Cayman turtle farm. It’s an internationally renowned research and conservation center for sea turtles that also provides up-close experiences for guests. Here you can tour and snorkel with turtles. You can also release a baby turtle back into the water.
Stingray City & Bioluminescent Bays – The most famous and celebrated spot to swim with stingrays in the Caribbean is Stingray City – the largest of the Cayman Islands. Once you are in the water, hold these “gentle giants” in your hand and feed them. You can even pet them, hold them and, if you are daring enough, even kiss a stingray. During the late evening, set sail on board your private boat rental in the Caymans for a bioluminescent bay tour. You will be able to witness millions of brightly illuminated little sparkles that lights up the ocean with each paddle stroke.
Rum Point & Seven Mile Beach – Rum Point and Seven Mile Beach are located in close proximity to each other. While Seven Mile Beach is highly crowded, Rum Point is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of the crowds. But indeed, they both are the gems of the Cayman Islands. Rum Point is famous for its mudslides, therefore stop by the Wreck Bar and Grill and feast on some mudslides. Seven Mile Beach, famous for its gorgeous clear waters and coral sands, is also the perfect place to take in the panoramic views of the setting sun. You can swim and snorkel at these two locations.
Starfish Point & Smith Cove – Starfish Point – the beautiful stretch of beach – is considered perfect for snorkeling as it is surrounded by crystal clear water on all sides. There are a high number of starfish that inhabit these shallow waters. Starfish naturally live here and regularly frequent the shallows looking for food. Most avid travelers look for a great location to snorkel, barbecuing, or just hanging out in the sun – Smith cove is a must visit. The sea is very clear and a variety of sea life can easily be spotted beneath the gentle waves.
Beach Time & Underwater Photography Snorkel – The Cayman Islands has more than 365 moored dive sites between the three islands. With around 200 being around Grand Cayman, the majority of dive sites can be reached on board your own private boat rental in Caymans. With so many sites to choose from, there is always a calm and clear site for some awesome underwater photography action. Later you can enjoy a leisurely stroll on the golden sands and take in the mesmerizing views of the lush green scenery. You can also take some great pics in the scenic backdrop.
Whale Watching & Fishing – For fishing enthusiasts, the great news is that the Cayman Islands offer some great fishing opportunities to all its travelers and locals alike. The two different types of fishing trips you can experience here include reef fishing and deep sea fishing. You can catch wahoo, marlin, mahi-mahi, and tuna. When you are done with fishing, hop on your private boat rental in the Caymans and set sail on the turquoise blue waters to meet these majestic marine creatures – the whale.
