Grand Cayman is home to so many picturesque and unique places to visit, in addition to its world-famous Seven Mile Beach. There are parts of the island to explore where you can learn about Cayman’s heritage and history, other beaches of exquisite beauty in less populated areas, and one of Mother Nature’s most exciting “fountains”?
Below are some of the top places to visit in Grand Cayman, when touring the island:
While the island is known for its serene white-sand beaches, vacationers might want to choose a lesser-known beach at South Sound, on a Grand Cayman sightseeing excursion. Choose a spot and soak in the scenery of this area with its swaying palms and – if you time is right – a few surf-worthy waves.
Pedro St. James (also known as Pedro’s Castle)
Discover the Cayman of the 18 th century and learn about its history and culture at Pedro St. James. The Cayman government restored this house, which was built in 1780 by a wealthy Englishman. Stroll through this intriguing castle, considered to have undergone the most extensive restoration project in Cayman’s history, view its antique furniture and splendid artifacts. It sits on 7 acres, which include lush gardens, and it is designated as a national historic site on the island. A mere 20- minute drive from George Town, it’s a place you’ll enjoy on your tour.
Blow holes are a marvel of nature that never fails to attract tourists and locals alike. You’ll see them along a particular beach on Grand Cayman’s East End, a perfect escape featuring a majestic “show”? you’ll never tire of. Ocean waves roll in and shoot up through underwater caverns like a natural geyser. Make sure you check out this natural phenomenon on your Grand Cayman land tour.
