Last year I had the opportunity to visit Grand Cayman. It was beautiful and everyone there was so friendly. As a whole they refer to it as Caymankind. While I was there I don’t think I had a single second of downtime. There was so much I wanted to enjoy, and although I didn’t get to see everything I would have liked to, today I’m finally sharing some of my favorites with you.
Eat & Drink
Jessie’s Juice Bar & Cafe
A healthy way to start your day, or keep it going. Great green smoothies.
Gelato & Co. Cremeria Italiana
Some of the best scoops you’ll find, handcrafted daily. The fruit flavors (seasonal) are my favorite.
Wonderful Asian bistro right on the waterfront. The atmosphere is beautiful.
The food here was delicious, but what I enjoyed the most was the hand crafted cocktails.
Camana Bay Farmer’s Market
Local farmers and craftspeople, every Wednesday. You have to try the Pepper Jam, it’s delicious!
The ackee fritters saltfish are addicting. So are the crispy breadfruit chips.
West Indies Wine Company
A fun place to taste and socialize.
Barjack at Ritz Carlton
Known for having the best pine-colada. The sliders are delicious as well.
Smith Cove Beach
Small and easy to get to beach near town. You can give a nod to Betsey the tourist, but she won’t reply.
Boggy Sand Road Drive
Suggested to me by a local, this one is for the house junkies. Charming caymanian architecture.
Observation Tower at Camana Bay
The 360 degree views are incredible, and so is the tile mosaic and double helix staircase.
Seven Mile Beach
One of the most beautiful stretches of sand I’ve seen.
Beautiful display of various types of plants. The color garden is my favorite.
You’ll need to take an excursion to see this, as it’s a sandbar in the water. It was one of the most exciting and scary times in my life.
Excite your taste buds as you move along on this walking flavor tour.
If you’re looking for shopping, check out Camana Bay. It’s a beautiful outdoor space that brings together local artisans with high-end style.
The Ritz Carlton was where I hung my hat, you can read more details here.
