Seven Mile Beach is the jewel of the Cayman Islands. Its powdery white sandy beach is stunning and not surprisingly you will find lots of land and water based activities to keep the whole family entertained and great restaurants for all tastes and budgets. There are a lot of condo rentals available on this stretch and most of them offer a variety of amenities.
Condos can also be found at Rum Point, Cayman Kai and in East End.
Villas & Rental Homes
Most of the available villas, rental homes, and condos are found in Cayman Kai on the North Side of the Island, as well as the East End. These properties are typically standalone villas offering more space and privacy to enjoy the tranquility of island living. These areas are less developed than Seven Mile Beach, however there is still plenty to keep you entertained.
Rum Point is located within walking distance of Cayman Kai and is very popular among both tourists and locals. Rum Point offers a wide variety of water sports, food from the Rum Point Club restaurant, drinks from the Wreck Bar, and opportunities to kick back and relax on one of the many sun loungers on the waterfront. Further up the road you’ll come across Kaibo. Kaibo is a casual beach bar and restaurant downstairs on the beachfront, offering excellent fresh fish, salads, and sandwiches. Upstairs is slightly more formal, with balcony seating, and a wide selection of food from the Michelin star chef.
The scenic and unspoiled East End offers excellent dining options at Tukka, South Coast Bar & Grill and the restaurants at the Morritt’s and Wyndham Reef resorts.
Little Cayman Vacation Rentals
One of the last undeveloped islands in the Caribbean, Little Cayman is known for its tranquil atmosphere and outstanding diving. A genuine island hideaway, you cannot avoid slowing right down, resetting your watch to true island time and enjoy doing a whole lot of nothing. At just 10 miles long and a mile wide it’s a true island hideaway that offers complete peace, relaxation and natural unspoiled beauty.
Most people bring plenty of food and drink with them on the short trip from Grand Cayman, but there are a few good restaurants, such as The Hungry Iguana for an a la carte menu, Birds of Paradise for buffet food and Pirates Point who serve a good set menu.
For those who want to explore the pristine surroundings (after a few days of resting in a hammock with a book), there are secluded beaches, numerous lagoons, mangrove forests, salt ponds, and tropical forests strewn with orchids. For divers, the sea holds a plethora of world-class dive sites.
