Little Cayman, aptly named for being the smallest of the three islands, is home to some of the most beautiful, untouched natural scenery. To give you a taste of an average day on this picture-perfect island we’ve put together a sample itinerary.
- The picturesque beach of Point of Sand is the very definition of seclusion. Wake up and start the day with a morning stroll along its powdery white sand.
- Spend some time at the Little Cayman Museum for a slice of history (admission free). The museum preserves and protects Little Cayman’s cultural heritage collecting, conserving, and interpreting artefacts, documents and published materials related to the history of Little Cayman.
- After visiting the museum, stroll across the road to the red-footed booby pond – the largest nature reserve for these birds in the western hemisphere. Viewing platforms are available for watching these magnificent birds.
- For a real adventure go scuba diving in the afternoon. Little Cayman has one of the world’s truly legendary dive sites, the Bloody Bay Wall. The sheer coral wall begins at 20 ft. and plunges to 6,000 ft. It also offers one of the finest drop-offs in the Caribbean and is reputed to be one of the most spectacular and varied dive locations in the world.
- To end your stay in Little Cayman, visit Owen Island, a small islet just off the south-western coast. The only way to reach this island is via a short sailboat, kayak or paddleboard. Don’t forget your picnic!
- Round the day off with a cold beer as you prepare for some spectacular stargazing.
