The largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman is a Caribbean getaway with sandy beaches, vibrant coral reefs, and a reputation for excellent food. But while many travelers come here to sunbathe and swim at Seven Mile Beach, there are more things to do in Grand Cayman such as snorkeling, fishing, sailing, horseback riding on the beach, and duty-free shopping. Animal lovers seeking adventure should check out the popular Stingray City and the Cayman Turtle Centre.
Grand Cayman has two seasons: the rainy, warm summer from May through October and the dry, mild winter from November through April. Travelers seeking sunshine are drawn to Grand Cayman during the winter; people seeking hotel deals who don’t mind the occasional rain shower often travel during the off-peak summer months. Events bring a lively atmosphere to the island all year, from the Cayman Cookout in January to the Cayman Islands Orchid Show in March to Taste of Cayman in May.
You’ll definitely want a rental car here: It’s the best way to find small beaches, visit the capital of George Town, go shopping in Camana Bay, and more. For smaller journeys, many visitors opt to rent a scooter or bike and take advantage of the island’s flat terrain to cover ground quickly. The public bus, taxis, and a ride request app called Flex all offer additional options for getting around. Boat cruises from private charters and group tours offer exploration of the coastline from the water.
The Camana Bay Farmers Market is a weekly, pedestrian-friendly gathering with local fruits, spices, baked goods, and smoothies for sale. Visit Willie’s fruit stand for a mango smoothie during a visit. Cocktail lovers may want to plan a trip to coincide with the annual Cayman Cocktail Week, an event with classes, parties, and dinners held each October.
