Scuba Diving Cayman Islands - Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, Cayman Brac


The Cayman Islands are situated in the Caribbean, 290km (180 miles) northwest of Jamaica, and comprise Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Cayman's beaches are renowned to be among the best in the world, in particular Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman. Although in relative proximity, each of the islands is unique in its developed infrastructure as well as the type of topography found both on land and underwater.

Grand Cayman is the largest of the islands and is the main tourist destination. The capital, George Town, is today one of the leading commercial centres in the Caribbean region. The gingerbread-style buildings lining George Town's harbour front are prime examples of traditional Caymanian architecture. The Cayman Islands have a limited number of nightclubs, which sometimes feature international acts. Divers have been drawn to Grand Cayman for many years. From walls to reefs, to Stingray City, the lure of Grand Caymen continues to be a popular choice.

The sister islands, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman have been rated among the top dive destinations in the world. The fact that they are less developed and less visited has allowed pristine reef systems to develop, which are teeming with underwater life.
