Grand Cayman Island, Caribbean

UPDATED March 21, 2019

The Cayman Islands is a British Overseas Territory. It consists of 3 islands in the western Caribbean Sea:

Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac.

The largest island is the Grand Cayman Island, pictured here in the aerial photo.

In my opinion, there are basically three places on earth you can fly to witness the most beautiful azure-blue (Azul in Spanish) colored waters in the world:

the Caribbean, the South Pacific, such as in Tahiti, and in the Indian Ocean, such as in the Maldives or Seychelles.

Of course, there are other places similar to these waters, but it would be hard to top the beauty of the three places on earth mentioned here.

George Town

I simply love George Town, the Capital of the Cayman Islands. Located on the west coast of the Grand Cayman Island, it’s a sleepy, yet bustling port of call for cruise ships.

The town is also a major Caribbean financial hub. Cardinal Avenue is packed with tax-free shops, where you can find some pretty good bargains.

To get a deeper insight to the history, culture, and wildlife of this beautiful paradise you can visit the National Museum, located in a 19th-century building on Harbour Drive.

Harbor Drive has a lot of quaint shops and a nice outdoors atmosphere during the day as well as the night.
