You can also easily find canal-front house plots for sale at a reasonable price but the land is very low, often only one to two feet above the high tide mark, and this is particularly the case in North Sound Estates. Inland you will find that properties on the market in this area are family homes on larger plots with good-sized gardens and lovely shade trees. Savannah and Pedro are two of the highest-elevated areas of Grand Cayman. The commute times have improved since the East-West Arterial Road opened, but it still slows down significantly near Prospect during the morning rush hour as everyone is trying to filter onto the same roundabout.
From late-May to early-August the poinciana trees, of which the area has an overwhelming abundance, flower and the sight as you drive through Savannah is breath-taking.
Also located in Savannah is Pedro St. James Castle, a national historical site and the oldest-existing structure in Cayman. It is known as the 'Birthplace of Democracy in the Cayman Islands'. There is a really good restaurant on site called the Thatch & Barrel which serves Caribbean-inspired dishes and the staff are wonderful.
Countryside Shopping Village, located at the roundabout where the road intersects between Savannah, Pedro and the entrance to Newlands, is the largest central shopping hub in the area. This village of shops has a Foster’s supermarket, CNB bank, large pharmacy, medical clinic, liquor store, hardware store, gym, pet food and supply store, veterinary clinic, dry cleaners, several restaurants and a few other useful stores. Country Corner, located next door to Country Side, has additional locations for Cimboco, Chicken! Chicken!, Cafe Del Sol and GNC.
