I am often asked how I have chosen the top 10 list, that I put up on my blog. While in college I found it much easier to create a list when I started studying for a test or writing a term paper. Knowing that it is easy to understand why I create a top ten list, now as to how do I decide what goes on the list, simply put it is things I would like to do or have done in Cayman Islands. I have chosen things on this list either because I have come across them while studying for certifications, personal experience, research, or client recommendations. Each of the item on the top 10 has a link, which will open a new window for more information.
Let us know what you think of our list in the comments below the list.
Stingray City is among the Cayman Islands’ most popular attractions. Aquatic lovers mingle with marine life by wading among friendly stingrays that congregate near the sandy shore. This once-in-a-lifetime experience lets you get up close to these magnificent animals. Experience the majestic southern Atlantic stingrays in only three feet of water as you brush up against these creatures. Stingray City is a group of sandbars located 25 miles off the shore of Grand Cayman, and offers tours ranging from 3 to 5 hours. During the tours, you can swim with, feed, and take memorable photos with these friendly rays.
If soft coral sand beaches, stunning turquoise waters and calm waves aren’t enough to sell you on a visit, maybe what’s located on and near the beach will. Seven Mile Beach Grand Cayman is home to many of the area’s best resorts, bars, restaurants, shops, natural wonders and more. It’s a popular destination that never seems to be too crowded. You will have no problem finding a peaceful space all your own right in the middle of it all.
3. Scuba Diving
Devilishly deep drop-offs, wicked wreck dives and some of the coolest coral in the Caribbean have made the Cayman Islands a world-class dive destination. Grand Cayman’s North Wall plunges deeper than 1800 metres/6000 feet and offers beautiful wall diving with opportunities to see spotted eagle rays and sea turtles. Grand Cayman also offers accessible shore diving on great coral reefs with little to no current. Cayman Brac offers a good mix of wall, wreck and reef diving for all experience levels.
4. Go to Hell
The tiny town of Hell is located in the West Bay area of Grand Cayman. It’s about a 10 minute drive north of Seven Mile Beach. You’ll know you’re there when you turn onto Hell Road!

Educational, cultural and entertainment programmes are consistently being created and updated to enhance the experience that can only be found at our world-renowned attraction.
6. Histoic Great House Pedro St James
Discover the unique heritage and culture of Cayman via this lovingly restored window into the 18th century that’s only a 20-minute drive from George Town. It a time in the Cayman Islands when most people lived in tiny, thatch-covered houses, a wealthy Englishman, using slave labour from Jamaica, created an astonishing 3-storey building called Pedro St. James.
7. Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Garden
Enjoy the simple elegance of a traditional Caymanian garden with the startling beauty of an exotic floral display. Spend an hour or two… or a full day! One thing is certain, each of our visitors will leave with a greater appreciation for the delicate balance of nature and the dedicated care in it’s preservation.
We stopped at the Crystal Caves during our short trip to the Caymans and were very happy with our decision. We’ve never seen anything like these caves and likely never will! Andre, our guide, was funny and very informative throughout our tour — he actually played in the caves as a kid! They take you through 3 cavesCayman Islands
9. Mastic Trail
Mastic Trail is a 4.6 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Bodden Town, Cayman Islands, Cayman Islands that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and bird watching and is accessible year-round
10. Visit Georgetown
It is well worth a trip to George Town, the capital of the Cayman Islands. It is the financial hub of the Cayman Islands and where the government conducts its business. It is also home to the high–end jewellery and beauty stores.
