What’s up guys! Are you excited August is about to end and the fall season is coming? I AM! It’s been a long and unforgettable summer, I visited so many new places and met really cool people but my skin needs some time off from sun exposure and sea salt water! Hubby and I just recently came back from our vacay to the Cayman Islands, the Caribbean Sea never disappoints us!
When booking our Anniversary trip I was looking for a new destination that could offer luxury, white sand and crystal clear water. We are suckers for crystal clear water. I was deciding between Grand Cayman and Turks n Caicos, both by the Caribbean Sea, until I found out of the existence of the Crystal Caves in Grand Cayman, those sold me right on the spot.
I wasn’t aware that Grand Cayman is almost new to tourists, many resorts are under construction and the Crystal Caves were discovered only 3 years ago. The Islands are part of United Kingdom and attracts visitors from all over the world, mainly Americans, Italians and English tourists. The official language of the Island is English. With a cute English accent.
WHERE TO STAY
I booked our stay at the Kimpton Seafire resort and Spa by the famous Seven Mile Beach. The resort was new and modern, the staff very kind and friendly, they welcomed us with champagne and guided us through the hotel and its facilities. Our suite was nice and well decored, my favorite part was the oceanfront view from the oversized balcony and the well-furnished minibar.
WHERE TO EAT
On our second night, we dined at “Agua”, rated one of the best seafood restaurants of the entire Island. I know now why… The food was incredible!!! It’s located by Camana Bay, a touristic strip with many stores, bars and comfort food. We had octopus, ceviche (a must), sea scallops, local veggies and the catch of the day, snapper. I wanted to keep eating, everything was so good!! Plus, the waiter was Italian, it was a pretty nice surprise to be able to speak Italian in the Caribbean!
On our third day, we rented a sailboat for the day and for lunchtime we ate at “Abacus”, another nice little restaurant by Camana Bay that offers to different menus for lunch and for dinner. I stayed somewhat light and ordered just a few appetizers and a salad with grilled shrimp. Tasty and fresh.
