When we think of the Cayman Islands, we can’t help but picture ourselves drinking petite umbrella cocktails on white sandy beaches, swimming in pristine waters, doing fun stuff and simply enjoying the view. The Cayman Islands is a British overseas territory formed by three Islands: Little Cayman, Cayman Brac and Grand Cayman. Grand Cayman happens to be the largest of the three, where you can get the experience of a lifetime.
Seven Mile Beach
This beach stretches for seven miles of real heaven on earth. Located on the western side of the Grand Cayman, Seven Miles Beach will make your vacation unforgettable. The crystal-clear water and coral sands attract tourists from all over the world and it’s considered to be the top spot in the Caribbean. It’s where the sun rises over the blue waters, offering you plenty of beach activities as well. You can enjoy a wide range of water sports such as swimming, diving, snorkeling, and kayaking.
