The Cayman Islands Offer Something for Every Sun Seeker

Comments Off on The Cayman Islands Offer Something for Every Sun Seeker

It seems that everyone, including the stars, are headed on vacation to the Cayman Islands these days. Over the last two years, the number of tourists has increased by about 11 percent. Last year, more than 385,000 sun seekers enjoyed the beauty and excitement of one of the three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.

Taylor Swift, Sir. Richard Branson, Cameron Diaz, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, and John Travolta are just a sampling of A-listers who regularly visit. Musicians like Alicia Keys and John Legends also like to attend the popular Jazz Festival in the Caymans each year, and tennis fans flock to the KPMG Legends Tennis Tournament at The Ritz-Carlton.

Owned by the British since 1670, the Caymans are the gem of the western Caribbean Sea. As you’d expect, sunbathing is perhaps the most popular activity in the Caymans. Here you can truly rest, relax and unwind from a fast-paced, stressful life. But, for those who like to be active, the Cayman Islands offer many varied outdoor activities for adults and kids alike.

Two of the Cayman’s favorite attractions for adults include Pedro St. James Castle and Grand Cayman Botanic Park. If you have kids along on the trip, don’t forget Stingray City. Here, children can actually wade in the water and pet southern stingrays. Kids also love the 23-acre Cayman Turtle Farm which allows them to see how sea turtles live in their natural habitat.

The Caymans are known for their exotic, unbridled trade winds. That doesn’t stop golfers though from experiencing some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean. Catch the wind the right way, and you may just make the longest drive of your life. Golfers can choose between the North Sound Club, the Britannia Golf Course, and perhaps the toughest, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club. It features five super-long Par Four holes.

After all the excitement, why not enjoy a famous rum cocktail at one of the many tiki bars along the coast, and dine at some of the most popular restaurants on the Cayman Islands, including the Rum Point Club, the Cracked Conch, and the Grand Old House. Rest assured, whatever tickles you’re fancy, you’re sure to find it in the Cayman Islands.
