About Cayman Islands
The Cayman Islands can be found in the western Caribbean Sea, comprising of the Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Located just south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica, the Cayman Islands are considered part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone and a major world offshore financial centre. With its largely tropical climate, the Cayman Islands have a wet season of warm, rainy summers from May to October and a dry season of hot winters between November and April.
The main attraction of the islands is the Seven Mile Beach which is home to a large number of hotels and resorts that many Westerners like to make the most of during their time on the Cayman Islands.
The islands are also home to a number of historical sites such as the Grand Cayman and Pedro St James Castle. All three islands that make up the Cayman Islands are great for scuba diving, offering tourists the chance to swim with stingrays.
The Observation Tower located in Grand Cayman is also an extremely popular attraction. Standing at 75 feet tall, it provides a 360 degree view across Seven Mile Beach and George Town.
Rugby is the most popular sport in the Cayman Islands and the country has its own national men’s and women’s team while famous individuals from the country include Ronald Forbes (an Olympian), Jason Gilbert (singer/songwriter) and Lee Ramoon (footballer).
