The Cayman Islands: Shopping & Diving

Verdant landscapes, waters of superb clarity, rare indigenous species and dramatic coral reefs set the tone on The Cayman Islands. Genuine tropical enclaves south of Miami, these three islands sit in sea with 120foot visibility, making diving in the Caymans an extremely gratifying experience. The Cayman Islands are separated from Jamaica by some of the deepest waters in the Caribbean – 6km deep at Cayman Trough.

Grand Cayman provides everything from fashion to perfume and jewellery in its many boutiques. Cayman, the largest of the islands, is the hub of this duty-free destination: established as well as emerging designers can be found here, together with a huge variety of art and independent boutiques. Cayman Brac, the second largest island is famed for its perpendicular cliff, one of the most beautiful attractions in the Caribbean. The smallest island, little Cayman, is a compelling natural haven. Home to the Caribbean’s largest population of the Red Footed Booby and arguably one of the world’s best dive sites, the Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park can be accessed easily by yacht. Whether you are looking for a quiet hideaway, diving or sport fishing, the Caymans have it all.
