Grand Cayman Land-based activities

While the waters around the island offer plenty of things to do, there are also many activities that will keep you entertained on land.

Explore Camana Bay

Camana Bay is a new development on the island, just north of Georgetown. Enjoy wandering through the pedestrian-only streets, window-shopping, stopping in cafes and special family-friendly events. There are some great restaurants there, as well as the West Indies Wine Company's tasting room.. They also have Gelato & Co, with some of the best italian desserts on the island!

There are many regular events there for all ages - see Camana Bay Events Calendar for details.

Cayman Turtle Farm

One of the biggest tourist attractions on the island, this farm shows some of Cayman's past. Even though turtle is the national meat of the island, this is the last remaining turtle farm here. They provide opportunities to interact with turtles, feed tropical birds and get a taste of what island life used to be like. A word of advice, though - this is one of the most-visited attractions from the cruise ship visitors to the island and can get extremely busy when cruise ships are in. We advise that you plan your timing accordingly.

Golf

There are two golf courses on the island that are open to the general public. North Sound (18 holes), which has the only driving range on the island, and Brittania Golf Club (9 holes, each with 2 sets of tees), designed by Jack Nicklaus.

A Drive Around the Island

There are many smaller points of interest on the island - too many to list here. Instead we recommend the excellent "Grand Cayman Driving Tour" for a self-guided tour from Georgetown around to Rum Point.

Horseback Riding

Coral Stone Stables in West Bay provides horseback rides and swims. Novice to experienced riders are accepted. They even do night rides on nights with a full moon.

Pampered Ponies, also in West Bay, offer swims with horses on an uninhabited stratch of beach along the north wall, and will pick you up.

Spirit of the West is a Caymanian-owned stable offering horseback beach, trail and swim rides.

A Helicopter Tour

Cayman Islands Helicopters offers air tours of the island, including Stingray City, Seven Mile Beach and a complete island tour. They are closed Sundays.

Shopping

In addition to the usual touristy-type shopping in the middle of George Town close to the cruise ship port, and the shops in Camana Bay, we can make some other suggestions for things to buy for yourself or for friends at home.

If you have a car (and we do strongly recommend one, when you stay with us) a trip to Bodden Town is worthwhile to visit Beach Bubbles.  These are hand-made all-natural soaps and lotions and the proprietor, Nina, is more than happy to let you sample her wares.

For more typical souvenirs that are a little different, try our Pure Art on South Church Street, south of George Town.  They have handcrafted, local gifts, and island paintings and artwork.

Other suggestions are to bring home some of the famous Rum Cake - there are a few brands on the island - or Scotch Bonnet sauce, for your friends who love hot sauce.

Skateboarding

The Black Pearl Skatepark is, at 62,000 square feet, the largest skate park in the Carribbean, and will rent equipment.

Sundays on Grand Cayman

Traditionally, on Sunday, Caymanians go to church, rest, eat and have family time. Many businesses and activities are closed on Sundays for this reason. If you wish to join in with the tradition, there are many local churches which will welcome you.  One tradition that many visitors enjoy is Sunday Brunch, which has been elevated to an art form on the island.  Many places offer a Sunday Brunch and you need to reserve a table well in advance.
