18th-Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

It is easy to think of the Cayman Islands as a year-round destination that is always sunny, warm and a veritable shining example of tropical beauty, tranquility and ease of living. On the other hand, there are always events going on here, not to mention holiday celebrations. In fact, one of the Cayman’s most anticipated holiday events is its annual Christmas tree lighting.

Read on to find out more about how we celebrate this event here at the South Bay Beach Club.

The Ceremony
Every year, Crescent Beach on Camana Bay transforms itself into a winter wonderland. The ordinarily bustling destination, which houses restaurants and retail shops of all types, instead becomes the place to celebrate the lighting of the island’s majestic, official Christmas tree. There are also dozens of other events, including a Christmas craft market, carol singing, a visit from Santa Clause and a variety of musical performances, including by The Cayman National Choir and Orchestra, the Cayman Islands Folk Singers and Cayman International School Elementary Choir. In addition, many restaurants and bars offer special celebratory foods and drinks to mark the occasion.

The History
The Caymans’ annual Christmas tree lighting event started in 2000, making the 2017 celebration the 18th year it has been a Caymans tradition. We here at South Bay Beach Club encourage all of our visitors to take part in and enjoy the event, as it is a wonderful way to celebrate a traditional holiday and experience the warmth and generosity of the people of the Cayman Islands. It is made for children and adults of all ages, so make sure you bring your entire family to Camana Bay. As the event gets very busy, make sure you make reservations at a Camana Bay restaurant ahead of time so you have an eagle’s-eye view of this fun event.

The holiday season is also a busy time all over the Cayman Islands in general, and such is the case at South Bay Beach Club. Visitors come from all over the world to celebrate the holidays, get away from the cold or just take time off as the old year ends and the new one begins. Consequently, make sure you reserve your room early so you don’t miss enjoying our slice of paradise.

So remember that you don’t have to choose between Christmas and your long-desired tropical vacation. When you visit us here at South Bay Beach Club you really can have it all.
