Cayman Islands at a Glance

Resort community, tax haven and tropical paradise, the Cayman Islands are all these things and quite a bit more.

The Cayman Islands' resort community lines the western side of the island along Seven Mile Beach. While the beach is actually five mile long, its sheer size helps you find a patch of sand to call your own. Golden sands and calm waters make swimming and sunbathing relaxing things to do.

If you crave a bit of adventure while on vacation, check out the Cayman Islands' diving opportunities. The islands are perched on the edge of a great underwater trench and divers can explore the shallow bottom right up to its dramatic descent into an endless dark pit of water.

Away from the ocean, the Caymans have restaurants, hiking trails, museums and plenty of shopping opportunities to explore.
