Whether you are a local, visiting the Cayman Islands for the first time or returning for your fifth visit – we hope you spend time at Camana Bay, and it is easier than ever to get here and explore. Here we outline seven ways you can make the journey to Camana Bay and beyond!
With the ongoing expansion of the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, residents are able to access Camana Bay through five entrances, making the Town Centre accessible no matter what district or direction you are coming from. An afternoon juice from Jessie’s Juice Bar is closer than you think!
Camana Bay tenants are able to enjoy the newest and coolest car-sharing programme to hit the Caribbean. ZÜN offers on-demand access to a fleet of Arch Automotive-maintained Audi vehicles. This service is perfect for lunchtime errands, visiting family or even when you are trying to impress a date for the evening.
For those looking to get back on island time and reconnect with the eastern districts, look no further than Cayman Ferries. Travelling between Camana Bay, Kaibo Yacht Club and Rum Point has never been easier with this direct ferry service.
Enjoy a leisurely cruise through the Camana Bay Harbour which leads you on a journey through the North Sound and past Coral Gardens – make sure to keep an eye out, you may spot a stingray or two! Book a sunset sail, enjoy dinner at Kaibo Yacht Club and be back in time to drive the babysitter home.
With weekly roundtrip service from Tuesday to Sunday for an affordable US$25 per person, this is a bucket-list experience for visitors and residents that should not be missed.
If you are looking to dock your personal boat in the Camana Bay Harbour while you sing your heart out during Wednesday night karaoke at The King’s Head, our dedicated team at the Camana Bay Visitor Centre is here to help. Day docking is free; if you wish to lease a slip overnight or long-term, just contact the Visitor Centre here.
You may have seen people on Camana Bikes whizzing past on Market Street, an exclusive bike-share programme available to Camana Bay tenants to make life that much easier for those who live and work in the Town Centre, but did you know there is a new way for Camana Bay visitors to get around by bike as well?
Cycle Cayman is the newest way to get to and around Camana Bay. This bike rental option is similar to Boris Bikes in London, England and Citi Bikes in New York City – offering flexibility through an easy-to-use platform.
From inception, the Camana Bay Town Centre has been centred around walkability. With many pedestrianised roads, our town was designed with the eventual aim of sea-to-sound connectivity.
The Rise offers visitors and residents of the Camana Bay community the opportunity to stroll from the Crescent on the North Sound straight to Seven Mile Beach to enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean.
