Introducing Grand Cayman

To most of the world, Grand Cayman is the Cayman Islands, a glitzy shopping mecca and global financial center where five-star hotels line the fabulous white-sand Seven Mile Beach and the wealthy from around the world spend time sipping cocktails and discreetly playing with their millions.

Yet beyond George Town and Seven Mile Beach the island does have its own quiet charm and Caribbean life still leaves its mark on what, in many places, could otherwise be mistaken for suburban Florida – whether it’s the islandwide cockerels crowing at dawn or the impromptu parties that take place at a moment’s notice. The island is crowded, no doubt, and it’s far from being an idyllic Caribbean hideaway, but with its excellent restaurants, retail diversions, activities and things to see and do, Grand Cayman is certainly not a place to be bored.
