There is also the new Harbour Walk right next to Grand Harbour which is a mix of residential and retail and includes lots of interesting shops, restaurants, and amenities such as a gym. There are also two banks in the area (Scotiabank and RBC Royal Bank, as well as the Department of Vehicle and Drivers Licensing.
Also in the Red Bay area are the Cayman Islands Sailing Club, King’s Sports Centre and Powerhouse Gym. The commute to town (outside of rush hour) from this area is relatively quick (10 minutes), but traffic does get backed up during rush hour at the Hurley’s roundabout. Expect the regular commute at the height of rush hour to take 35 minutes, but you can shave 15 minutes off that time if you live at Grand Harbour.
There are lots of residential homes in this area with a mix of inland, canal front and oceanfront properties. There are a few really nice areas to look out for in Red Bay and Prospect: the first is Old Prospect Point Road, a quiet beachfront community found on a winding road where longtime Cayman residents have built very exclusive million-dollar homes.
The second area, called Patrick’s Island, is an upscale residential area with canal frontage, where land is still available and many desirable four and five-bedroom homes have been built.
The third is Grand Harbour, which is located immediately behind Hurley’s Shopping complex and the nearby retail and residential hub, Harbour Walk. Consisting mainly of canal-front homes to the south is South Reach, a gated community that is almost completely built out. The other side of the canal has The Isles and The Estates. It has been a very active area in terms of new home construction.
