Easter is a very special time in the Cayman Islands. The holiday centers on religious events; both Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and there is plenty of Easter-themed entertainment to keep the whole family entertained. Easter is a festival celebrated to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a time that often evokes fond memories of family gatherings, Easter egg hunts, and in many cases – the first sign that Spring is here!
In the Cayman Islands, you can experience ‘post-snow’ relief by coming here to spend your easter holidays in the Cayman Islands. During this holiday, the tradition of spending time together with family are of great importance.
If you are looking to spend a fun-filled day while on vacation, take a trip to the one and only Rum Point in Grand Caymans, home of the world-famous Wreck Bar. Once at Rum Point, you will find a small quiet beach with plenty of options for an enjoyable family day. The crystal clear waters offer a great opportunity to try your luck at the world famous Coral Gardens snorkeling site.
Below are enlisted a few special events which are popular amongst the locals as well as tourists during the spring time:
•CAMPING AROUND RUM POINT – On Grand Cayman, you will find locals camping along Queen’s Highway in East End, around Rum Point, Cayman Kai, and of course, on Seven Mile Beach.
