Grand Cayman is filled with ways to spend your days. If you recently booked a trip to this island paradise, ensure your excursion is truly unforgettable by adding any (or all) of these unique attractions to your itinerary. Don’t forget to pack your camera along with some disposable back-ups so you have plenty of opportunities to snap amazing photos.
Ever wanted to kiss a stingray? Even if the answer is a resounding no, Stingray City just might be the most incredible aquarium touch pool on the planet. Situate yourself on a sandbar in the shallow, beautifully-blue water while southern stingrays wander up to feed. Don’t worry, they aren’t interested in feeding on you, and they are so used to humans that you can easily pet them.
Yes, you read that correctly. Visit Grand Cayman and “go to hell,” or the limestone formations in West Bay that could be mistaken for the fifth circle of that fiery place. Complete with a devil statue and a kitschy gift shop, it’s easy to spend a few hours in Hell. There’s even a post office so you can send postcards from the underworld. Keep in mind that Hell gets very hot (no pun intended) in the summer.
Siren Of Sunset Reef
Amphitrite, the underwater mermaid statue known as the Siren of Sunset Reef, is a 9-foot bronze wonder found 55 feet below the waves in a coral reef near the Sunset House Hotel. The sculpture by Simon Morris satisfies any mermaid fascination and is perfect if you desire a diving adventure as part of your Grand Cayman experience.
Wreck Of The Teignmouth Electron
Left to disintegrate on the beach of Cayman Brac is the Teignmouth Electron, a 40-foot vessel found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean in 1969. Donald Crowhurst, the ship’s builder and captain, was never found. Adding to his mysterious disappearance are his erratic log entries that have some speculating he jumped overboard. And while the ship had several owners after Crowhurst, it was eventually left to rot. If you love abandoned ships, this site is for you.
Davinoff’s Concrete Sculpture Garden
Old Man Bay in Grand Cayman features Davinoff’s Concrete Sculpture Garden, a stunning concrete garden masterpiece featuring an assortment of island and sea creatures, some of which are native exclusively to the Cayman Islands. The concrete blue iguana is one such creature, and that’s in addition to a giant octopus and crab among others.
