Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is a prosperous island with a very British feel. The island is green with luxuriant vegetation, especially at the East End where there are pastures and grazing cows. North Sound is a 40-square mile lagoon with mangroves, although dredging schemes and urban growth threaten the mangrove habitat and the reefs.


Some low-key but sophisticated development has taken place along the north coast around Cayman Kai, a very attractive area with lovely beaches and good swimming and snorkelling. Most of the tourist development, however, is along Seven Mile Beach on West Bay, where there are hotels, condominiums, clubs, sports facilities, banks, restaurants and supermarkets.
