Stingray City in Grand Cayman.
If you’ve ever seen a breathtaking image of someone standing in the ocean having a nice chat with a stingray, it was probably taken on Grand Cayman. The island is known for its ‘Stingray City Sandbar’ where you can interact with stingrays in their natural habitat. Honestly, “stingray” is a tad misleading— they’re one of the friendliest sea creatures in the Caribbean. Just treat them with the warm respect they deserve, and they’ll treat you to an unforgettable experience.
Cayman Seven Mile Beach.
You know the island is a prime beach spot when the beach is longer than the width of the island; Seven miles to be exact. Located on Grand Cayman’s western coast, the entire beach is public property. This means you can bask in the sun anywhere you like, or walk up and down its shore to explore hotels, villas, restaurants, and natural wonders along the way.
Insider Tip: Seven Mile Beach is also home to world-class scuba diving and a sea turtle hub. As if you needed another reason to visit.
Cayman Turtle Farm.
European explorers landed on the Cayman Islands and upon seeing it’s shores populated with more turtles than they had ever seen before in one place, they dubbed the islands, “Las Tortugas” (Spanish for turtles). Humans have long been fascinated by these majestic, calm, long-living creatures. On your visit to the Caymans, be sure to stop by the Turtle Farm and have your chance to lounge around with them in their lagoon habitat. Enjoy educational, cultural and entertainment programs to enhance the experience!
George Town, Grand Cayman.

Island Botanical Park.
Cayman’s Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is one of the island’s little-known secrets. The journey begins at the beautiful Visitors Centre and moves into two acres of modeled landscape, a multicolored mosaic of Floral Gardens, and the stunning sight of more than 40 Grand Cayman Blue Iguanas. These endangered creatures are only found on Grand Cayman, and a glimpse alone will be worth the trip.
Find your own adventure.
Perhaps the best part about visiting Grand Cayman is discovering something new for yourself. Whether that means tasting seafood delicacies like foot long prawns, discovering the infamous shoe tree, or simply walking through the farmer and artisan markets at Camana Bay, you’re only limited by the length of your stay.
