Scuba diving and snorkelling are the most popular activities on Grand Cayman, which is known for its coral reefs and underwater walls, as well as a number of shipwrecks, plus stingrays and turtles galore.
The largest of the three islands, Grand Cayman is roughly 35 kilometres long and 12 kilometres at its widest point. Reaching a maximum elevation of 20 metres above sea level, this one island accounts for 76% of the country’s entire landmass. Grand Cayman is home to the capital, George Town, and also to 95% of the islands’ permanent population of around 52,000.
Most visitors stay at Seven Mile Beach – rated as one of the most beautiful in the entire Caribbean – on the west coast, where white sands and dazzling blue sea meet American-style hotels and resorts, cocktail bars and nightclubs.
When not diving, on land you can explore the national parks on foot, visit museums, or simply relax in a hammock.
