Amid the Secrets of
Our Islands

Unlocking the unknown is as simple as asking a local about their favourite menu item or panoramic view. Luckily, we know a resident or two. But be sure to continue the conversation once you’re here using #caymanislands to get in on more of the hidden fun.

Local Tips

"One of the best places to take a break from the sun is underwater. The Cayman islands has some of the best marine life and reefs in the world. There are even underwater statues on some of Cayman's reefs! You can explore art in a totally different way by scuba diving. Just book a dive excursion with one of the Islands' many dive operators like Divetech and they'll make sure you see it all. "

Local Tips

"There are many ways to experience The Cayman Islands. One way is by renting an open-top jeep and exploring the Eastern side of the Island. Pedro's St. James, the Blow Holes, Lighthouse Park, Wreck of the Ten Sails, and enjoying the views along Queen's highway. I would also recommend a visit to the newly opened Crystal Caves, then cool off at Rum Point."
