Where To Stay In Grand Cayman

Most of the hotels on the island are beachfront, and directly on popular Seven Mile Beach. For an upscale option, The Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman houses a luxury spa, six restaurants and bars, as well as a golf club. The newest hotel on the island is Palm Heights. It’s a modern boutique hotel that’s quickly become a fan favorite, simply because of the oceanfront suites.

Where To Grab A Meal

Because of its geographic location, The Cayman Islands’ cuisine is centered around fresh seafood and Caribbean recipes. Calypso Grill is a prime example of the array of fresh seafood restaurants. You can opt for a casual waterfront dining experience at Rackam’s Waterfront Bar & Grill. Don’t miss out on their famous Caribbean Jerk steak.

Things To Do While Visiting

Walk out of your hotel and explore beautiful Seven Mile Beach, named for its “seven miles” of white sand and clear waters. While on the beach check out Sting Ray City, and get up close and personal with the island’s sting rays. Take a day trip to Little Cayman or Cayman Brac and go scuba diving to see Bloody Bay Marine Park or Captain Keith Tibbett’s Wreck.
