WHY PEOPLE COME TO THE CAYMAN ISLANDS
The Cayman Islands are very famed for offering a wise variety of outdoor sporting activities and tax breaks that make financial investment highly appealing. Here of some of the reasons tourism is such a booming industry for the region and why so many opt to relocate to this idyllic paradise.
Cayman has some of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the world. They are fairly extensive, given that there are 3 islands, with the Seven Mile Beach on the Grand Cayman being most famous. Even during peak tourist seasons there are still plenty of room to be found on the sands. It is also here where you will find many of the top hotel chains and restaurants. Snorkeling activities are easily carried out along these beaches because there are lovely shallow corals where swimmers can explore and admire underwater life.
Deep Sea Fishing
Sport fishing is fun when you have the right person to guide you to the best fishing grounds and a suitable boat to get there. Top private charter firms like Cayman Private Charters are renowned for helping even novice fishermen bring back prize catches of blue marlin, tuna, mahi mahi and swordfish. The deepest Caribbean waters offer the best fishing grounds for large sized catches. A well catered charter can provide visitors with all they need to make their half or full day fishing trip an immense pleasure.
This is a more advanced level of diving and offers greater opportunities to explore deeper sections of the reefs and the several underwater wrecks that have been taken over by marine life. It is possible to try deep sea diving all round the year with over 200 dive sites found around Grand Cayman alone. Some great sites include the USS Kittiwake, Trinity Caves, Paradise Reef and the Bloody Bay Marine Park off Little Cayman.
The waters off the shoreline of the Cayman Islands tend to be very calm, offering a safe environment in which to try out all manner of water sports. There are many places you can hire equipment to attempt activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, surfing, kite boarding and seabobbing.
This shallow diving activity is greatly enjoyed on the islands thanks to the clear blue waters and abundance of marine life that wanders close to the shoreline. From stingrays at Stingray City to turtles at the Boatswain Beach Turtle Farm, there are plenty of places to visit and explore. This activity is very safe to undertake even with children as long as there is adequate supervision.
Further inland you can enjoy plenty of exploration thanks to the establishment of excellent hiking trails through attractions like the Mastic Trail in the Grand Cayman and Rebecca’s Cave in Cayman Brac. Many of the popular trails expose visitors to natural wonders like the Cayman parrot, the Silver Thatch palm and wild banana orchids. Some trails also allow for equestrian enthusiasts to travel along on horseback.
This is another highly popular pastime that is aided by the presence of some very rare bird species such as the Brac Parrot and the Vitelline Warbler.
