Grand Cayman

Just what makes Grand Cayman grand? Grand Cayman is, as the name suggests, the largest of the three Cayman Islands. This is true not only in size, but in the number of attractions it offers. The 76-square-mile island, approximately 22 miles long and eight miles at its widest point, is chock-full of luxurious hotels and condominiums, beach bars, fine restaurants, duty-free shops, and plenty of soft adventure ranging from sunset cruises to scuba diving with stingrays.

This is the center of Cayman's tourism industry, the destination of most travelers. Within the island, most vacationers head to Seven Mile Beach, home to the lion's share of hotels and condominiums. This legendary beach is one of the best in the Caribbean.

Because of the banking and offshore insurance industries, you'll notice that Grand Cayman has a different atmosphere than many other Caribbean islands. Here you'll find many returning guests, folks who are required by corporate charter to meet several times a year on the island (what a tough break!).

You'll also meet many Americans who own property on Grand Cayman and live part of the year on the sunny isle. You'll also see many people combining a business trip with a few days of R&R.But don't think that this is a suit-and-tie suit island; Grand Cayman is as laid-back as any other fun-in-the-sun site.

So where to start? If you'll be arriving by air or cruise ship, you'll start off in George Town, the capital of the island and the center of its business, transportation and shopping industry. From George Town, most visitors head to Seven Mile Beach, the center of the tourism industry, filled with luxury hotels, condominiums, restaurants, dive operators, and more.
