Georgetown - Grand Cayman

Georgetown

Georgetown

It is really hard to see Grand Cayman and miss Georgetown. The airport is located here and the cruise ship passengers arrive at the town's docks. Georgetown has all of the shopping, which includes the highly sought after rum cake as well as jewelry. The main restaurants are located here and various island tours often meet here. The buildings are painted in attractive pastel colors and the city seems to be well kept. Of course, it can be expensive. Likely, anything you need to be doing such as renting a car, visiting a bank, or planning your trip will be done here.

7 Mile Beach - Grand Cayman

7 Mile Beach

7 Mile Beach

This is one of the best areas of sandy beach on the island. Of course, many of the hotels and resorts are located along its stretch. 7 mile beach starts just north of Georgetown and runs its course along the western shore of the island. This is your ideal place to sunbathe, swim, snorkel, and look for coral and shells that has washed on the beach. I saw quite a few hermit crabs while walking along the beach. You look down and notice that some of the shells seem to be moving. They are.

Coral Gardens - Grand Cayman

Coral Gardens

Coral Gardens

Often, a tour of Coral Gardens can be combined with a visit to Stingray City. As we all know, the ocean's coral reef systems are in jeopardy. The Cayman Islands are an excellent place to see a living reef. The coral gardens itself was great because the water was not really too deep. You could see a lot of the coral and fish very close to you. One must be careful not to touch the living coral since it is fragile.

A stingray - Grand Cayman

A stingray

Stingray City

A long time ago, some fishermen threw the remains of their catch into the sea where stingrays often were found. The stingrays became accustomed to being fed and being around people. Once they became tame, this place became an attraction. Now, many tours are available to bring you out to where the stingrays are so that you can have a close encounter with them. They did not seem that dangerous to me. The tour boats will have some squid that you can feed them. It is even possible to lift one out of the water if you are careful. Even though the water is shallow where the stingrays are, it is good to have a mask so you can see them underwater.
