Three Islands, Endless Possibilities
With an average year-round temperature range of about 75° F in winter to about 85° F in the summer, the Cayman Islands boast some of the finest tropical weather. All three islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman – are coral outcrops surrounded by healthy coral reefs and dramatic walls close to shore, creating ideal conditions for the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean.
The largest of the three islands, Grand Cayman is the hub of all business and leisure in the Cayman Islands and perhaps, the Caribbean. Known for being a global financial leader and more recently, the culinary capital of the Caribbean. Grand Cayman boasts a community of over 125 different nationalities working shoulder to shoulder with locals in all industries such as financial services to tourism.
More popularly known as one of the Sister Islands, Cayman Brac is a nature-lover’s paradise. More specifically, bird-lovers such as parrots, boobies and peregrine falcons. Brac is a 30-minute short flight from Grand Cayman and is popular with Scuba Divers for wreck diving. Only around 2,000 permanent residents reside in Cayman Brac. Interesting fact: Columbus signed Cayman Brac and Little Cayman in May 10, 1503.
The smallest of all three islands and only measuring 8.7 sqm, Little Cayman is a Scuba Diver’s Paradise. Famous for Bloody Bay, a submerged mountain range, dropping 2,000 meters to the seafloor — divers from all over the world come to Little Cayman just to dive in this marine park. With only 160 permanent residents, Little Cayman is truly one of the last remaining gems in the Caribbean.
