Cayman Islands is located in the Caribbean, south of the United States. It takes almost 10 hours to fly from London airport. This is my first time in the Cayman Islands but I hope it’s not my last!
The reason I say this is that the Cayman Islands are among the most beautiful islands on earth. On Grand Cayman, the white sand beach called Seven Mile Beach is one place I can easily lie down all day watching the day go past. The water is so calm, clear and crystal blue. Good to do some snorkelling just at the front beach. Others are off diving. All the small and colourful fish seem to be happy to see us.
Postcard From Hell
One day we took a trip to Hell and back. Hell is a suburb of Grand Cayman with funny looking rock that looks like what some would imagine hell would look like. Hell has its own post office, so many tourists like to send their friends a postcard from Hell.
While sight seeing or walking around, we can see that Cayman Island has a lot of Iguanas. There are also a lot of different lizards running around. Some times they don’t want to give way to you while you walk past.
Grand Cayman is home to the capital city of the Cayman Islands, Georgetown. You could drive around Grand Cayman in a day if you wish. As you drive, you’ll see big mansions built along the side of the beaches. You can also check out the botanic gardens, located near the centre of Grand Cayman. There are also a few picnic places by the beaches too.
Duty Free Shopping
Cayman Islands is a place where you can buy a lot of duty free diamonds and other jewelry. It’s amazing how many diamond shops there are. On Grand Cayman, most, if not all of these jewelry shops are located in Georgetown. They cater mainly to the cruise ship passengers, who disembark at the port in Georgetown. Like many other Caribbean islands, there are no taxes on many items, so luxury items such as jewelry can be much cheaper than other countries.
