Things To Do In Grand Cayman

There are so many things to do in Grand Cayman! All of which are amazing in their own way. With the time I spend on the Cayman Islands, I rounded up my top 3 things. I went to the Caymans to have a nice and relaxing trip so I really enjoyed doing “less” active/ adventurous excursions. Relaxing at the beach and walking around town was exactly what I needed in order to rejuvenate.

1. Snorkeling Tour

Snorkeling is hands down the BEST thing to do in Grand Cayman. The water is so clear that you can literally see the bottom. The water on its own is so beautiful, but once you get below water, everything just changes. I cannot tell you how breathtaking it was. And the best part was that the water was very calm and warm.

I didn’t feel like I had to fight against the current, which can be very scary for those who are not strong swimmers. They have amazing fishes and majestic stingrays! Swimming alongside them was absolutely amazing. No words can describe it.

Snorkeling was my favorite part of my entire Grand Cayman vacation! I loved it so much that the next time I go to the Cayman Islands, the first thing I am doing to do it book a snorkeling tour.

When I looked up things to do in Grand Cayman everyone said to visit stingray city and do a snorkeling tour. Of course, I booked this (hence the snorkeling tour mentioned above). BUT I was very disappointed with the stingray portion.

Don’t get me wrong, it was a super fun experience and I think that everyone should do this at least once, but I would not do it again. It was hyped up so much that it just did not meet my expectations.

There were WAY TOO MANY people there doing the exact same thing. It took a long time for our tour guide to find a stingray to bring back to where the group was. And even then we all had to wait a long time to actually feed, play, and pet the stingray itself. It was a very fun experience, but it’s not something I would do again.

2. Relax on the Beach

On any island, you cannot go wrong with a nice relaxing beach day! I was totally down for this! Grand Cayman has the most amazing beaches and the water is just so clear and perfect. I just walked all around and found a nice spot to sit and just watch the waves.

When I was there, there was not a lot of waves, like the water itself was quite calm. A little picnic with a great sunset and nice ocean sounds was the perfect way for me to relax and recharge!

Starfish Point was a great place to get up close and person with starfish. The water is shallow, making it perfect if you have traveling with young kids.

Rum Point is another great beach! I heard such great things about it, but I wasn’t able to visit. Next time I travel to the Cayman Islands, I’m definitely going to spend some time at this beach!

3. Go rum tasting

OK, so I know that this is a unique thing to do. But even if you do not drink as much, the Rum there is SO much better than what you can find in the States. I recommend either going on a rum tour or to a liquor store and try their local rum.

My absolute favorite was Tortuga Rum! This particular brand is very hard to find in the States. They had so many different flavors that it was hard to choose the 3 that I was could bring home. Literally any flavor you can imagine they have it! The ones I decided to get were Banana, Vanilla, and Mango. These were all super tasty! You better bet that I savored every last drop!

Not only is this rum good on its own, but it is very easy to mix with to create a great cocktail! Although the rum is flavored, the flavoring is not overpowering. And you still get that alcohol kick! If you are not a huge drinker, I recommend just tasting a little bit. In my opinion, Grand Cayman rum is much different from US rum and definitely worth trying at least once!

Final Notes

The Grand Cayman has so much to offer! But it can get really overwhelming to choose how to spend your time there. If you choose to take a land vacation there, then you will have more time to do things. If you opt for a cruise, then you will only have a day to explore this beautiful island. Figure out if a land vacation or cruise is better for you, with my article Types of Holidays: cruise or land vacation.
