The Cayman Islands is renowned for their unparalleled beauty and unmatched serenity, offering some of the most sought-after real estate opportunities in the world. When it comes to island living, the districts of North Side and East End stand out as hidden gems. Here are some spots that make these districts so extraordinary.
Rum Point is located on the northern side of Grand Cayman. It’s a serene oasis known for its powdery white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters, as well as the friendly stingrays that pay a visit from time to time. A day at Rum Point often involves snorkelling, paddleboarding, or simply basking in the sun. Don’t forget to stop by the Rum Point Beach Bar for a refreshing piña colada or their signature mudslide.
Just a stone’s throw away from Rum Point lies the shores of Starfish Point, a beach that’s tucked away from the hustle and bustle you’d usually find along the Seven Mile Strip. As the name suggests, Starfish point is the perfect place to observe these beautiful creatures up close in their natural habitat. The shallow, tranquil waters and quiet beach are also perfect for swimming, enjoying a picnic or simply taking in the sunset.
As beautiful as the starfish may be, visitors are reminded not to touch them or remove them from the water as this can cause stress to these beautiful animals.
Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park
Nestled in North Side, the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is a haven for nature enthusiasts. This lush oasis boasts a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the indigenous and protected blue iguana, which you can spot while strolling through the woodland and wetland trails. The park’s picturesque surroundings make it a fantastic place for a leisurely family outing or a peaceful escape.
Explore the mystical wonders of Cayman’s underground world at the Crystal Caves. These stunning caves are adorned with crystal-like stalactite and stalagmite that have been formed over millions of years. Guided tours take you on an unforgettable adventure through this subterranean wonderland, making it a must-visit attraction. Although these caves have always existed, they’ve recently been open for exploration by the public, making this attraction a unique go-to spot for educational and historic excursions.
The mesmerising, natural phenomenon in Bioluminescent Bay is nothing short of magical. Witness the waters come to life with a stunning blue glow as tiny, light-emitting organisms respond to movement. This natural spectacle is a rare and unforgettable experience. Kayak, swim, or even snorkel under the night sky, as you bask in the water’s bioluminescent glow.
