For some travelers, simply having the opportunity to relax in an exotic locale like the Cayman Islands is enough of an adventure. If you’re looking forward to spending your days in the Caribbean watching the waves roll in from underneath the shade of an umbrella on a private stretch of world famous Seven Mile Beach, then we have a lounge chair waiting for you. But if you’re in mood for something a little more daring than sunbathing, Grand Cayman has a lot to offer! Here are some of the adventures that you won’t want to miss during your stay with us.
Go Swimming With Stingrays
Stingray City offers one of Grand Cayman’s most unique and amazing experiences – an opportunity to swim with and feed wild stingrays! Once a popular spot for fishermen, who unintentionally attracted the rays when tossing unused bait overboard, the shallow sand bar at Stingray City is now a place where 50 or more large southern stingrays swim boundary free, accustomed to having people join them in the water. The gentle stingrays, which can grow to a size of over five feet wide and weigh around 150 pounds, are very curious and willing participants in these interactions, swimming right up to guests for food.
Take A Tour of the Cayman Crystal Caves
The gorgeous Crystal Caves may have been around for hundreds of years, but they have only recently been opened to the public. Found on private land, the extensive cave system was explored and developed into a can’t miss experience for visitors to the island. Featuring rare and beautiful formations, tropical animal and plant life and an underground lake, the three caves that are currently open for guided tours offer sights long unseen in the area.
Dive Into the Dark On A Night Submarine
See the ocean in a whole new way. This unforgettable evening adventure takes passengers down to depths of 100 feet or more by submarine to the dark seafloor, where some of the predatory nocturnal fish and colorful coral that remain hidden during the day are on full display. Submarines are also available for day tours, if you’d like to experience what goes on underneath the waves but aren’t a diver.
Although this list only scratches the surface of all the adventures that Grand Cayman has to offer, we hope it will inspire you to make the most of your time with us at South Bay Beach Club. The most memorable vacations often strike a balance between relaxation and exploration and we think that Grand Cayman is one of the world’s best vacation spots. Once you’ve arrived, step out onto the white sands of Seven Mile Beach, have a cocktail or a delicious appetizer and take a deep breath. We’re sure you’ll agree.
