An Exotic Paradise
The Cayman Islands
are famous for their crystal clear waters, offering visibility and colour consistently voted the best in the Caribbean. Coral reefs, shipwrecks and deep drop-offs offer world-renowned dive sites, while turtles, stingrays and schools of tropical fish are just a few of the underwater treasures to be found.
The Cayman Islands are made up of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac
and Little Cayman. Each has a stunning coastline and individual character, making a Cayman Island yacht charter
a fascinating journey through an exotic paradise.
Grand Cayman is the largest island, with the glorious Seven-Mile Beach considered among the best beaches on earth, and luxury shopping and fine dining experiences aplenty. Nature lovers will be drawn by the turtle farm and marine reserve, as well as the famed ‘Stingray City’, where gentle stingrays float gracefully up to swimmers in the crystal clear waters, hoping to be fed. A visit to Grand Cayman wouldn’t be complete without a journey to ‘Hell’, a striking boulder field of ancient black limestone formations.
Grand Cayman is also the most developed island, with the Georgetown Harbour providing an excellent base for superyachts and offering some exclusive resorts, fine dining restaurants and designer shopping. For those feeling active, Grand Cayman sports an excellent golf course, plenty of watersports and the Mastic hiking trail through the forests to the island’s interior.
On ruggedly beautiful Cayman Brac, the yacht charterer will find a nature lover’s paradise: quiet bluffs and secret caves, rock climbing and nature trails. This island boasts wonderful limestone formations, and you will find Blue Iguanas bake lazily on the hot rocks. Bird watchers will delight in seeing the Cayman Brac parrot and red-footed boobies, while divers will explore the sunken Russian frigate MV Captain Keith Tibbets and the many excellent wall and reef dives around the island.
The spectacular diving continues off Little Cayman Island, where the Bloody Bay Wall dive is considered one of the world’s top dive sites, with plummeting walls and more than 500 species of fish. Above the surface you will find a paradise of sand, lagoons and coral under the waving palms;- this island has less than 200 inhabitants and it is easily explored by foot or by renting a bike. There are far more birds than people here - more than 100 times as many in fact – and the island is home to the Western Hemisphere’s largest colony of red-footed boobies in the protected wetlands. You can hike, kayak and laze your day away in a hammock strung between the palms here,- but don’t expect an exciting nightlife.
The Cayman Islands offer glamour and excitement, fantastic wildlife and deserted, glorious beaches – everything you could possible need for your dream yacht charter.
