About Constitution Day

Constitution Day in the Cayman Islands celebrates the day when we no longer were a dependency of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands relationship with Jamaica changed once again in 1962 when that country became independent. In 1972, a revised constitution had a profound effect on Cayman and all of its residents.

There would be other constitutional changes over the years, with the Bill of Rights established in 2012 perhaps being the most significant. A public meeting of roughly 500 people led to a spirited discussion and debate that would shape the Bill of Rights and the rights of the Cayman public.

Head to Camana Bay on July 2nd and revel in Constitution Day joy with us. This day and celebration is an important part of our culture and heritage.

Attend Kaibo Kite Fest On Grand Cayman

Buy a kite before or at this year’s Kaibo Kite Fest on Grand Cayman, just make sure you have one because you’re in for a high-flying good time at a fun Caribbean tradition. Kaibo Beach on Grand Cayman is again the site for Kaibo Kite Fest, a joy-filled festival for awe seekers of all ages. This grand celebration of kites features opportunities to fly home-made or professionally constructed kites, and enter a competition to possibly be awarded “best flyer.”

About Kaibo Kite Fest

Kaibo Kite Fest is part of Kaibo Beach community organizers’ vision to bring Caymanian culture to residents and tourists. The kite festival is an unofficial welcome of the summer season and it takes place when the wind is absolutely perfect for kite flying. The festival happens to take place over Easter break this year, which means many Cayman visitors on vacation have the opportunity to come and enjoy a prized Grand Cayman location.

Grand Cayman’s breezy shoreline will offer so plenty of beauty and lush landscape to be enjoyed. This Kite Fest is a way to showcase how lovely our island beaches are for kids, families and any type of resident or tourist. The event is free and it’s environmentally friendly, as there isn’t need for much except people, kites, wind and music.

Competition entrants have the chance to win prizes from local companies, such as a Digicel smartphone or a Cayman Airways flight. Registration for the various contests begins at 1 p.m. Before or after Kaibo Kite Fest, Kaibo Beach is a perfect place to spend the day with a picnic or just enjoying the company of friends and family.

50K Marathon

For many, a visit to the Cayman Islands means a chance to push back from the rigors and demands of everyday life and relax. With its legendary tropical climate, placid, azure-blue waters and stunning beaches, it’s certainly no wonder.

However, not all people think alike. A few brave souls look at this paradise of sun and sand and think, wow, what a great place to put myself through the most grueling physical test of my life. If you are one of these special types, then read on.

Time to Go Off-the-Beaten Track
The 9th annual Off The Beaten Track ultra-marathon is being held on Sunday, Feb. 25, beginning at 5 a.m. Consequently, if warm, tropical breezes and intense racing speak to you, now is the time to act fast and make your reservations to get to the Cayman Islands for this one-of-a-kind event.

This innovative race is an excellent challenge for both first-time and veteran racers, as well as those who have entered this very event in the past. That is because the race course changes substantially from year to year, winding over sandy beaches, back roads and tropical bush. What’s more, the exact race course is kept secret until one week before the event, after which it is key for entrants to study it ahead of time to be aware of its impending challenges.

This event is styled after Morrocco’s Marathon des Sables, a 156-mile run over six days across that country’s hot sands, and allows entrants to compete individually or as part of a six-member team.

More than just a race, Off The Beaten Track also benefits the individual charity each of its six corporate sponsors choose to represent, as well as Facing Africa, an organization that sends surgeons and medical supplies to Sub-Saharan Africa to help treat facial deformities in children there.

Let South Bay Beach Club Take the Heat Off
Since you will be focused on your pre-race rituals, race-day challenges and post-race celebration, let South Bay Beach Club handle everything else. We are known as the premier luxury destination in the Caymans, so why not treat yourself to the best? We’ll make sure your room is clean, fresh and super-comfortable so you can focus on the work, and fun, at hand. Then, we’ll also make sure you don’t miss any of the great sightseeing and dining options after your work is done.

So contact us here at South Bay Beach Club and make your commitment to the race and your own relaxation afterwards.

Chalkfest

As we all know, art comes in many shapes and forms, and only a select few pieces make it to the museums and galleries across the globe. Still, there is art everywhere, and usually the best creations come from the streets—and sometimes the beaches—of communities all over the world.

Here in the Cayman Islands, we take our art seriously, but we also like to have fun with it. That is why our annual Chalkfest celebration has become such a hit.

Chalk This Up to Art
This year’s Chalkfest, to be held Saturday, March 31st, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Camana Bay, marks the 14th year of this very popular event. Artists of all ages, styles and abilities are invited to leave their easels, paints and brushes at home and trade them all in for free chalk and the slab of pavement of their choice to simply make art.

Nonetheless, there will be first-, second- and third-place prizes for the best individual and group art works in a number of age categories, including those under 5 years of age, 5 to 7 years old, 8 to 10 years old, 11 and 12 years of age, 13 to 18 years old, and adults 19 years of age and older. Only one entry per category is permitted. Participating artists are encouraged to bring sponges, rags and buckets to help creative types make the most of their chalk work.

If you are interested, you can register on the day of the event. Fees are about $12.00 for adults and $4 for children, depending on the exact exchange rate at the time. It’s all for a good cause, though, as proceeds go toward the Cayman Islands’ National Gallery Outreach Programmes.

In addition to all the creating, there will be multitudes of Easter-themed treats and games available to participants, as well as an artisanal market, face painting, music, balloon animals and a story reading sponsored by Books & Books.

Make South Bay Beach Club Your Artists’ Lair
The Caymans’ premier luxury resort can be your home away from home any time you visit our beautiful islands. Not only do we offer the greatest lodging and amenities, but we’ll make sure you know about every event and can’t-miss attraction during your stay.

So get ready to call on your creative juices and contact us here at South Bay Beach Club so you can take part in all the fun.

Coco Fest

While coconuts may be best known for their contributions to sweet treats around the world, the truth is, this amazing fruit can be used for so much more. In fact, for centuries, it has been used for things as diverse as a source of nutrition, cosmetics, a remedy for ailments and even fuel.

Here in the Cayman Islands, however, we stay focused on just a couple of those uses at our annual Coco Fest on Saturday, Feb. 17.

Nuts for These Fruits
Now in its third year, Coco Fest celebrates all things coconut, from foods of all kinds to games, crafts, beauty products and even music. Naturally, the big hit is the variety of food in which this versatile fruit appears, and visitors will have endless choices, from coconut rundown and coconut calamari to ice creams, pies, kombucha, heavenly cakes, tarts, marshmallows and many others.

There will also be competition, the newest of which is the inaugural Coconut Cake Competition. So if you think your secret recipe should be considered among the best, bring it on in and let the people decide.

In addition, the award-winning documentary Bright Spot will be reshown from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and the Visual Arts Society will be sponsoring the ever-popular Kids Coconut Corner.

Coco Fest is more than just fun, though, as it helps raise funds for the NCVO’s Children’s Foster Home. So come indulge and help your friends in need at the same time.

But Stay at a Place That Has Not Gone Coconuts
Perhaps the greatest charm of the Cayman Islands is that it offers unparalleled tropical beauty, peace and warmth, both literal and figurative, while at the same time offering so many historical escapes and downright nutty, carefree fun. After all, it is in the DNA of the friendly, imaginative people who call the Caymans home. Similarly, perhaps the greatest charm of South Bay Beach Club is that we make sure you don’t miss a beat of the great sightseeing and dining options here, as well the reverence that always seems to punctuate our celebrations. At the same time, we offer luxurious rooms and treatments that cannot be matched anywhere in the Caymans. From our rooms and spas to the pools and private areas, South Bay Beach Club is the place for the most discerning travelers.

However, if you are looking for a nutty way to express yourself and enjoy quiet luxury, contact us now and prepare to go nuts.

Light Up The Night Breast Cancer Walk

While there are endless activities to do in the Cayman Islands, spending time on the beach may be the most popular. Still, most people head home once the sun sets and miss out on the peace and beauty afforded those who take a leisurely stroll along the water’s edge on Seven Mile Beach in the dark of night.

However, for at least one evening per year, the nighttime beaches come alive to carry the torch for breast cancer. This year, the Light Up the Night Breast Cancer Walk takes place on March 3.

Enjoy Your Vacation and Light Up the Night
Now in its eighth year, the Light Up the Night Breast Cancer Walk helps raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. The event is more popular than ever, as Caymanians embrace the opportunity to help others and share their love. You can join them in their good deed while meeting locals and having a great time. In addition, if you are one of the first 100 people to register, you will receive an official glow-in-the-dark T-shirt to commemorate your participation in this eminently worthwhile event. So what’s not to love about spending a Saturday evening walking for this great cause?

Let South Bay Beach Club Make Your Stay a Breeze

The Cayman Islands Orchid Show – February

When people talk of the tropical beauty of the Cayman Islands, they typically think of the white-sand beaches, pristine Caribbean waters and verdant palm trees and landscape that this stunning island nation offers. The Caymans, however, as they prove over and over again, offer so much more. This is perhaps never more obvious than when the Caymans host their annual Orchid Show, which celebrates the breathtakingly beautiful, mysterious, delicate plant that has inspired untold artists and storytellers.

When and Where
Held on Feb. 24 and 25 at Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Garden in the district of North Side on Frank Sound Road, the exhibition will showcase the most beautiful locally grown orchids and host a plant sale of specially imported orchids, most of which will be in bloom. More than that, though, this event also promotes the conservation of Cayman’s native orchids, as well as educating visitors about the most effective ways to grow orchids. In addition, proceeds from the show will go toward establishing an orchid garden in the Botanic Park. The show is the Botanic Park’s major fundraising event, and thus it attracts floral enthusiasts from throughout the country.

It all started in 2008, when the Botanic Park was invited to design an entry for London’s prestigious Chelsea Flower Show and won the silver medal. The following year, the park’s entry won the gold, as well as the President’s Most Creative Award.

About the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Garden
The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Garden opened in 1994 when the queen herself led a ribbon-cutting ceremony to inaugurate this momentous occasion in Caymans history. Though the park’s Woodland Trail was the only attraction complete at the time, over the years, it has evolved and become the world-class facility that it is today.

Regardless of what time of year you visit Grand Cayman Island, you can enjoy a visit to the Botanic Garden any time. Whether you take a leisurely walk through the colorful gardens or botanic, lake and nature displays, you will never forget the beauty you find there. Visit the Tea House and marvel at its spectacular views, then stop by the Heritage Garden. After that, stop by the lake area and check out the natural habitats for the Cayman blue iguana and breeding grounds for the rare aquatic birds and animals that call the Caymans home.

So if you want to experience the Caymans and the beauty of our orchids, contact us here at South Bay Beach Club and book a room so you can enjoy the show while spending your down time in luxury.

Red Sky At Night At Cayfest

It is true, and perhaps unavoidable, that so many visitors to the Cayman Islands see it solely as a tropical paradise where the good life can be enjoyed. While this is certainly true and something of which Caymanians are proud, it also overlooks the depth and breadth of offerings this island nation boasts. The reality, as our repeat visitors know, is that this is also a land of great history, rich culinary traditions and stimulating cultural offerings.

Perhaps no annual celebration here symbolizes this truism more than Cayfest. The Caymans’ National Festival of the Arts is the islands’ finest showcase of local artworks, and Red Sky at Night, a multi-disciplined, multicultural arts fair, is perhaps its anchor.

Luckily for you, there is still plenty of time to book your trip here so you can enjoy the sand, surf, sun and arts. In addition, South Bay Beach Club is here to host you, offering not only a luxurious place to lay your head at night, but also a source of information about the event and island to guide you during your stay.

Who, What and Where
Scheduled for Feb. 24, Red Sky at Night features a variety of live dancing, musical and dramatic performances along with displays of visual arts and crafts and films. The event will be held on the Harquail Cultural Centre Grounds in George Town from 4 p.m. to midnight. It will also offer visitors the chance to enjoy many mouthwatering culinary treats while listening to the signature Caribbean sounds of steel pans, fiddles and drums during the live performances and featured art.

About Cayfest
This national festival begins with the National Arts and Culture Awards the previous week. This ceremony celebrates those who have excelled in the arts or contributed to the artistic and cultural heritage of the Cayman Islands. Then, just a day before all of the Caymans and its visitors gather for Red Sky at Night, the island hosts Dress for Culture Day. Now in its fifth year, this event pays homage to the incredible diversity of nationalities that make up the rich mixture of the Caymans’ population. Individuals dress up to celebrate the approximately 135 different ethnicities that are part of the Caymans’ stew to show their respect for and tolerance of people of all races. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

So add a little culture to your tropical adventure. Contact us here at South Bay Beach Club and let us worry about the details.
