Grand Cayman is home to the tiny but charming capital George Town, the administrative centre of this British Overseas Territory. It’s also the most developed island in terms of tourism attractions with the glorious, and at times lively, stretch of golden beachfront known as ‘Seven Mile Beach’
. In town there are duty-free shops
with a wide variety of jewellery, watches, cigars and clothing on offer as well as the chance to sample unusual experiences like a submarine ride into the depths of the deep blue sea or a more cultural visit to the National Museum or to sample a meal at one of the many restaurants and bars set beside the Caribbean. Nature lovers
will enjoy a visit to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, the iguana sanctuary or a walking tour through the landscape of the ‘Mastic Trail’ with a local guide. Take a trip out to the quiet beaches
at north-west point, visit the sting-rays on a snorkelling
trip in the North Sound or walk around the historic sites of the former capital at Bodden Town, and the magnificently restored grand estate at Pedro St. James.
