Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman is the largest of the three islands. Whether you are looking for complete relaxation, exquisite dining, exciting nightlife or the awesome underwater sights of our oh-so-accessible reefs, we have something for everyone.
On the west side of Grand Cayman you will find the famous Seven Mile Beach, the crescent-shaped natural wonder with boundless capacity for relaxation. With sand stretching as far as the eye can see, Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Caribbean – and the least populated.
Take a trip into the North Sound and visit Stingray City and the Sandbar where you and your family have the rare opportunity to play with friendly Southern Stingrays.
When you’re looking to get off the beach, get lost in the luxury of George Town, where colourful traditional Caribbean-style buildings meet high finance corporations and finish the day off with a sunset cocktail. Enjoy duty-free shopping on signature brands such as Versace, Tiffany, Gucci, and more. Still want more? We have it. There are many local vendors and craftsmen throughout the districts who work from their homes and are always happy to spend some time helping you find that perfect gift. An amazing combination of luxury and local treasures await you on your Cayman Islands shopping trip.
Summer temperatures peak in July and August with daytime highs in the upper 80’s to low 90’s and nighttime lows in the low 80’s. High humidity in the summer months can often make the days and nights feel hotter. A favorite time to visit Cayman is December through end of April.Rainfall is generally seasonal, from May to November, with May/June and September/October usually being the wettest months. The Cayman Islands Pirates Week has only been postponed twice due to rainfall in the past 28 years. Rainfall can be heavy during rainy season, however it often doesn’t last long and clears up quickly.
