While most people base their decision on the hotel or resort, it's interesting to consider what type of trip you're looking for as this beautiful archipelago has a lot of choices.

    Fortunately, incredible beaches and crystal-clear water is pretty much guaranteed in whichever part of the Cayman Islands you choose to stay. With 3 islands to pick from, it pays to do a little research before travelling to the Cayman Islands.

    Rum Point is an area surrounding a beautiful beach on the northern coast of Grand Cayman. This popular place has a wide variety of accommodation to choose from, with plenty of beach activity throughout the year. It’s most popular with groups and couples as there’s a lively scene in the beach bars, along with opportunities for fishing, jet skiing, and snorkelling.

    If you’re looking for a few hours of seclusion, head to the end of Water Cay Road to check out Starfish Point. As you might expect from such a name, the shallow coastline is peppered with starfish. Do watch out for jellyfish around August and September, though.

    West Bay sees far fewer tourists than much of Grand Cayman, and therein lies its attraction. If you're looking for a peaceful, residential vibe for you and your family, this is a great region to base yourself in since it’s only 20 minutes north of George Town.

    Popular spots in West Bay include Cayman Turtle Centre, Dolphin Cove, and Baker’s National Park, which is home to protected beaches and mangrove forests. West Bay Beach has a healthy reef just offshore where you can see a wide variety of fish and turtles. The sea can be rough at times, so it's best to wear a lifejacket if you’re exploring the reef.

    Bodden Town is a relaxed beach town on Grand Cayman’s south coast that combines beautiful windswept beaches with some historical charm. Its beaches have fewer activities to enjoy than in most other places in the Cayman Islands, but you’ll find more budget accommodation close to the beach.

    Spend a few hours at Bodden Town Mission House, one of the oldest buildings on the island, which shows how settlers lived in the 1800s. There’s a famous legend on the island that the notorious pirate Neal Walker hid his plundered treasure in several caves close to Bodden Town. There’s even a fun attraction dedicated to the legend that the whole family will enjoy. Head to the underground Pirates Caves, home to swashbuckling tales and a large group of fruit bats.

    East End, Grand Cayman

    Get off the beaten track in the east of Grand Cayman

    The East End is a lesser-visited spot to head to if you want to get away from the tourist festivities. This far-eastern region of Grand Cayman is more popular with dog walkers and locals having a family barbecue than selfie-snapping visitors. The town itself has several local restaurants serving fish fry and other regional dishes, along with a couple of guesthouses and a post office – it’s a far cry from the resorts along Seven Mile Beach.

    To explore the East End, it’s best to rent a car. The area has several blowholes on the water’s edge, which creates some extreme sights on windy days when the water pumps up through the rock. Head to Lovers Wall and you’ll find several nearby.

    North Side is a coastal region on the windy north coast of Grand Cayman. The local town attracts long-staying visitors and retirees, who enjoy the local flavour of life up here. After relaxing on the beach, head to Crystal Caves to explore the otherworldly stalactites. Lovers of the great outdoors will enjoy the 2-mile Mastic Trail hike.

    This region is around 1 hour from George Town, which keeps visitors low and the beaches peaceful. If you’re looking for something to do after sunset, take a 10-minute drive along the coast to Rum Point.

    Blossom Village, Little Cayman

    One of the world’s best places to dive

    • Macera

    Blossom Village has the most accommodation choices in Little Cayman, along with a few shops and bars. It’s the most popular place to stay for scuba divers who take the effort to come to this island. There are over 50 dive sites off the coast of Little Cayman, making it one of the most sought-after dive spots in the world. Two of the most renowned dive sites are Bloody Bay and Jackson's Bight, on the north side of the island.

    Above the water, you can enjoy the rustic beaches covered in turtle grass or rent a kayak and head over to the uninhabited Owen Island that sits a few minutes off the southern coast. At just 10 miles long, Little Cayman is easy to explore in a couple of days, making most of your time here about diving, sleeping, and repeating.
