20 Ultimate Things to Do in the Cayman Islands

1. Swim Among Stingrays at Stingray CityUltimate-Things-To-Do-Cayman-Islands-Stingray-City

If there’s one iconic activity on Cayman, this is it. The standard three-hour boat excursion includes stops for snorkeling along the way to Stingray City. But the real thrill is standing in this shallow sandbar, barely three feet deep and the soft translucent green of Murano glass, surrounded by dozens of Atlantic southern stingrays. The remarkable creatures exhibit a balletic grace as they glide around visitors, nosing for food and allowing themselves to be petted. Almost as entertaining are the boat crews, many of them multi-generational families; they explain their favorite rays’ nicknames, tell tales – tall and otherwise – of their exploits, and strum guitars, exhibiting typically warm Caymanian hospitality.

2. Meet and Learn About Turtles at the Cayman Turtle Centre

The outdoor exhibits at the Cayman Turtle Centre tell the life story of the glorious green turtles, from hatchlings to lumbering leviathan senior citizens. Kids of all ages especially love the photo ops with the youngins at the touch tanks. But there’s more to the Turtle Centre than amphibians. Sharks glide menacingly through the Predator Reef, iguanas dart around their own enclosures, and colorful birds from around the Caribbean flit about the aviary. You can even sunbathe and snorkel at the artificial beach.

3. Chill Out at the Cayman Kai and Rum Point Beach Bars

Grand Cayman’s North Side features a string of lovely beaches. The most popular, Rum Point, offers a slightly less frenzied and frenetic day in the sun than the showcase strand, Seven Mile Beach. Lime (meaning chill out) over margaritas or mudslides at the two rollicking beach bars, Kaibo and The Wreck, both of which also dish out decent pub grub. The onsite branch of Red Sail Sports can outfit you for aquatic activities aplenty: parasailing, snorkeling, windsurfing, jet skiing, and more.
