Grand Cayman is famous for its coral reefs, Stingray City, Seven Mile Beach, sailing, golf and dining.
If you're on island during a day trip, Stingray City and Seven Miles Beach are not to be missed. Stingray City is not a city, but a shallow patch of water in the Caribbean sea close to the coast where the stingrays have been completely domesticated and love to be hugged.
Seven Miles beach is actually not seven miles long but longer. This stretch of beach is very family-friendly shallow, ideal for snorkeling and swimming or simply strolling on the beach. You'll also find enough restaurants and watersports rentals on Seven Miles beach.
If you're planning to stay for longer than a day and wish to be away from the noise yet still be on Seven Miles beach have a look at The Grandview Condos.
Enjoy your stay!
"Beloved Isle Cayman”
Wondering about dangerous animals in the Caribbean? There are generally no carnivore land animals that are found in the wild on Caribbean islands. Non-venomous snakes, birds, iguanas, mongooses and many lizards are all over and are generally harmless. However, giant centipedes, who are found on most islands, can be venomous. Don't leave wet towels on the ground or hanging without drying for too long, because they love dampness.
