Grand Cayman travel guide

4.1
Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Nature & Parks
The largest of the Cayman Islands, the aptly named Grand Cayman packs quite a punch when it comes to modern tourist attractions. Banking may be the main reason to take a trip to Grand Cayman for the world's business elite, but casual travelers come here to swim, dive, snorkel, and pet, feed, and swim with placid stingrays. With countless shops, spas, hotels, and restaurants, the island is also a major destination for couples, who come here to either honeymoon or get married. Traffic congestion and big crowds can make a vacation in Grand Cayman a hectic affair, but you can always take a day trip to Little Cayman or Cayman Brac to find tranquil beaches and dive offshore shipwrecks and reefs.
