Easter in Cayman is a very festive time and there are a number of ways the Island has traditionally celebrated the long weekend.
Although not a very common activity year-round, Easter has long been a popular time to camp and each year hundreds flock to the beaches to pitch a tent for the weekend. Along the Queen's Highway in East End and in and around Cayman Kai and Rum Point are all popular spots. This is a family affair and you will often find clusters of tents grouped together, cooking communally and of course playing dominoes!
Cayman Kai and Rum Point are particularly busy during the Easter period as many families rent out condos and houses in the area and those with boats will bring them over for the weekend and spend lots of time out on the water. Once a year on the Easter holiday Monday, the blue skies above Kaibo Restaurant at Cayman Kai are filled with colourful kites soaring high in honour of old Caymanian tradition for Kaibo's annual Kite Fest.
The Island's faith-based community celebrates the occasion with beautiful and festive services being held on Good Friday and Easter Sunday by observing churches.
Foodies also get their boxes ticked as Sunday brunches across the Island get a special Easter treatment with special food offerings, decorations and even Easter Egg Hunts held at some of the hotels!
