The only way to reach it is by sailboat or kayaking across the heavenly waters of the bay that separates it from Little Cayman, so be prepared for a truly unforgettable voyage. This idyllic retreat is completely uninhabited, making it the perfect desert island for a private picnic or some snorkelling. The Southern Cross Club on Little Cayman can even provide a packed lunch to take across with you.

So if you love the idea of a Caribbean retreat for the ultimate in romance, rest, and relaxation, then be sure to visit Owen Island.
