The Island does not have a town as such, but the only grocery store, gas station, bank and clinic are all located near the Edward Bodden Airfield on the west.
Getting to Little Cayman
There are no ferries operating between Grand Cayman and Little Cayman, so access is only by air. Cayman Airways operates several daily flights from Grand Cayman to the Sister Islands. The flight to Little Cayman takes about 35-40 minutes on a Twin Otter plane.
Map of Nature & Historic Sites
South Hole Sound
The Island’s most famous diving destinations, the Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Wall, are both on the north side of this part and are easily accessible to divers staying at any of the resorts or villas in the area. Paradise Villas is the closest, but there are other good options including the Southern Cross Club, Pirates Point Resort, Little Cayman Beach Resort and The Conch Club.
Most of the accommodations are within walking distance of the Edward Bodden Airfield. The Booby Pond is also the only RAMSAR site in the Cayman Islands (an internationally recognised important wetland) and home to the red footed booby bird. The indigenous Sister Islands’ Rock Iguana also roams freely on the island. There is also a Police Station, Clinic, School and Fire Station in South Hole.
Heading up the road away from South Hole, the Island becomes more and more of a deserted paradise. South Hole Sound is at the border of the two areas, and the beautiful South Shore provides stunning views on the way to Point of Sand at the eastern end of the Island, where you can gaze across the water towards Cayman Brac.
Heading back on the northern side you will pass by Crawl Bay and Jackson Point. Point of Sand is located at the very tip of Little Cayman and is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. The sea is crystal clear and incredibly inviting. Just don’t swim there after dusk – sharks also love this spot!
