Last fall, we planned a vacation to the Cayman Islands. The shades of blue that dominated Grand Cayman has till date not escaped my mind nor from the minds of my friends. Be it the beautiful white sand beaches, warm temperatures, you can’t go wrong with this Caribbean paradise!
The Cayman Islands are a collection of three beautiful Caribbean isles just west of Jamaica. Comprising Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac, this tiny archipelago has so much to offer holidaymakers of every age. Each island has its own unique characteristics.
So when we visited the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean, what is there to do? What sets it apart from other Caribbean islands? Clear blue sea and laid back vibes at the Star Fish Point in Grand Caymans definitely set it apart from other Caribbean islands. Here's a comprehensive list of what all to do in the Cayman Islands during the fall season:
STINGRAY CITY – This destination is one amongst the top two destinations that you should surely visit while on a trip to the Cayman Islands. On a sandbank off the coast of Grand Cayman is Stingray City, an area where stingray city and starfish beach tours can be enjoyed on board your own private yacht to meet the stingrays in crystal clear waters. The visit to Stingray City will be the highlight of your vacation, and an experience that will live with you forever. Get up close and personal with these beautiful graceful creatures which behave a little like an excited dog when food comes out. It’s a very interesting experience when they jump on your back.
STARFISH POINT – Don't miss out starfish point excursion in Grand Cayman. It is the best destination to see various color and size starfish. Starfish Point in Grand Cayman is a breathtaking beautiful location. At Starfish Point, you will find camo starfish, bright red starfish, and ever light yellow starfish. Starfish point is located on the northern side of Rum Point at a location called Finger Kai. Sand surrounds a shallow part of the shore line, where starfish gather within knee deep water. Whether you’re looking to sunbathe on a remote beach, take amazing photos, snorkel or spend time with the kids hunting for starfish and beachcombing, this is a perfect location.
RUM POINT – Though a secluded place, yet one of the most popular tourist destination. On the picturesque North Side of Grand Cayman, Rum Point has something for everyone's Caribbean beach vacation. Rum Point is the perfect place to chill out. Soft white sand, combined with crystal clear shallow water makes it the perfect destination for families, while couples can grab a shady hammock and relax. Rum Point is famous for its mudslides. No visit to Rum Point is complete without sampling this delicious cocktail. Not to mention the shallow and clear waters of Rum Point Beach make it the ideal beach for swimming in the Caribbean.
SMITH COVE – The rugged beauty of Smith Cove really appealed to every person in my group. The soft sand here is ideal for laying in the sun, and the plenty of trees are there to give you natural shade. These crooked trees are easy to hang your things over and also cast shadows still with glimpses of sun poking through, leading a path down to the water. Extraordinary snorkeling opportunities are available at Smith's Cove and it is sometimes populated with Cayman locals. The turquoise waters of Smith's Cove are protected by coral reefs and limestone formations. The sea is very clear and a variety of sea life can easily be spotted beneath the gentle waves.
So, basically when you plan your visit to the Cayman Islands, come here for food, snorkeling, and diving. But also make sure to admire the visions of Star Fish Point in Grand Caymans, crystal clear waters of the Smith Cove, sampling the delicious cocktail of Rum Point and many other activities. It’s obviously made to be the stylish aspect of the Caribbean. For as long you'll visit this place, you will come to know what all is there to be explored in its every nook and corner.
