The Cay­man Is­lands are three idyl­lic is­lands nes­tled in the warm turquoise wa­ters of the Caribbean Sea. Each is­land of­fers a unique ex­pe­ri­ence and, with av­er­age tem­per­a­tures of 28°C, are per­fect for a spot of sun­shine year­round. The largest of the three is­lands, Grand Cay­man, has some­thing for ev­ery­one – whether its to­tal relaxation on the award-win­ning Seven Mile Beach, ex­cel­lent din­ing, bustling nightlife, cul­ture and his­tory, or div­ing. A short hop from Grand Cay­man, the con­trast­ing land­scape of Cay­man Brac has eight miles of na­ture trails, caves to ex­plore, great div­ing and a dra­matic Bluff run­ning through the cen­tre of the is­land. Lit­tle Cay­man, the small­est of the is­lands, has a pop­u­la­tion of 197 and is the per­fect place to lose your­self. Re­lax­ing in ham­mocks un­der shady palm trees is en­cour­aged, traf­fic is min­i­mal and igua­nas have right of way. Divers will love the Bloody Bay Wall; an un­der­wa­ter drop off teem­ing with life.


The Cay­man Is­lands lie south of Cuba and west of Ja­maica.

Bri­tish Air­ways flies to Grand Cay­man from Lon­don Heathrow four times a week.

There are 365 dive sites to ex­plore, rang­ing from ship­wrecks to colour­ful co­ral reefs.

Grand Cay­man is home to the rare blue iguana, which was saved from ex­tinc­tion thanks to a re­cov­ery pro­gramme.
