Which Caribbean destination is your personality?

It is easy to see why countless people from all over the world are drawn to the different destinations in the Caribbean. Enjoy the crystal clear azure color of the Caribbean sea, and the smell of the salty air.  Experience the calming feel of soft breezes emanating from trade winds that cool the tropical air. They  are powerful enough to lure anyone away from a busy city, or a remote rural town, as they dream of basking in the radiant sunshine of a tropical paradise.

How is it possible for one tropical Caribbean paradise to fit a variety of personality types? It is when the location is one that offers so many different amenities that the sheer variety of things to do, activities to enjoy, and the variety of exceptional tropical and native Caribbean dining choices and entertainment to experience all come together on the three islands that make up the British Dependent Territory known as the Cayman Islands.

The Adventurer

If you are looking for a destination that will allow you to spread your adventurous wings on or in the water, the Cayman Islands will let you explore everything. You’ll find an array of unique diving experiences that include marine habitats that have developed in the remains of sunken ships or surveillance vessels, the chance to snorkel with Stingrays, some of the world’s best reefs to explore and much more.

Water Sports

Whether you want to swim in a heated pool near the ocean, or in the Caribbean Sea, explore the salty water along the Seven Mile Beach via a kayak, a parasail, or a sailboat, you can do all of that and more when you visit the Cayman Islands.

The Beach Bum

Can you imagine a more spectacular place to be a beach bum than on the southern edge of the world-famous Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman Island? Inhale the salty air as you chase away the stresses of a chaotic life, relaxing on a beach with the whitest sand you’ve ever seen. This is the life that visitors of the Cayman Islands enjoy every day as long as they’re there.

Family Friendly Accommodations That Encourage Family Togetherness

Stay in a villa that gives you access to amenities like a pool and fitness center, but that also offers the flexibility you can only get when you’re not bound to a meal or activity schedule. Work out in a fitness center or swim in heated pool. Wade in the ocean and gaze at fish.

Romantic Horseback Riding Along the Beach

What can be more romantic than a horseback ride along the crystal clear turquoise blue Caribbean Sea? Nothing, unless you’re enjoying that ride as the sun comes up or starts to go down. The color of the sky is changing, and the reflection of those colors on the water is a sight like nothing you’ve ever seen.

If you enjoy golfing, then the Cayman Islands will give you a one-of-a-kind golf experience as you play on what will arguably be the most beautiful golf course you’ve ever seen. The mild Caribbean climate is ideal for the type of grass that grows there. The lush green carpet looks as luxurious as it feels.

No matter what type of personality you have, there are so many things to do and see, places to go, new foods and drinks to experience, that you’ll never wonder where to go when you’re planning your dream vacation again. The Cayman Islands offers something for everyone, no matter how young or old they are.

Extreme Cayman Adventures

Winter’s nearly over, and if you’re looking forward to a first class tropical vacation with tons of extreme sports, South Bay Beach Club has got what you’re looking for on the warm and crystalline waters at Grand Cayman Islands.

Extreme Sports in the Water

Let the local adventure experts at South Bay Beach Club show you the adventure you’ve been craving with the whole range of extreme tropical water sports. Hit the beach for surfing or twist up the curl kite surfing. If you prefer motor powered water sports, try making wakes with a jet ski or wave runner. Para-sailing is an amazing way to take in the view while flying behind a speed boat. For those with a curious streak, snorkeling and scuba diving are great ways to explore the tropical surf and encounter that thousands of colorful creatures beneath it. Of course, not all extreme water sports have to be new- there’s always body-boarding or canoeing, for a more familiar thrill.

Over the Water

For those who would like to get out of the water, well out of it, wing suit skydiving is about as exciting as it gets. Drop from a few thousand feet and literally fly over the islands and the bay. If you’ve got a strong neck and enjoy the feeling of raw excitement, bungee jumping may be the thing. If you just want to feel the whoosh of the air and see the Earth rushing up to meet you, traditional skydiving is nothing to sneeze at.

On the Land

Those with an affinity for cardiovascular fitness may go for trail running- and there may be no better place on Earth for it. Mountain biking is an excellent way to explore the island as well as a great way to experience trails. Rock climbing is a big deal on these islands with many opportunities to test your grip and your resolve in this beautiful tropical paradise. Cave diving and exploration are sports that can be incorporated with just about any other kind on the Cayman Islands as these locations are riddled with complex networks of caves.


The South Bay Beach Club can arrange an activity package with any of these activities and more for your Spring or Summer vacation. They offer a range of non-extreme sports for when you just need to catch your breath. There’s horse riding along pristine beaches, sailboating, golf, and much more to fill out your tropical get away.

The South Bay Beach Club is nestled in the world-renowned Seven Mile Beach with a host of first class villas, restaurants and a whole range of amenities to make your get away event one that you will not soon forget.
