Grand Cayman is world famous for its miles of coral-sand beaches, luxury resorts, diving opportunities and duty-free shopping. But here’s something the majority of its 2 million annual travelers have yet to discover: the Grand Cayman wellness scene. This beach vacation destination actually has endless ways to soothe and pamper even the most stressed-out visitor’s mind, body and soul.
Wellness on Grand Cayman goes beyond getting a massage or facial (although you should definitely visit at least one of the island’s incredible spas). It happens when you’re meditating on long drives along the coast, feasting on sea-to-table dishes, caring for yourself in outdoor yoga classes and catching a glimpse of endangered species in their natural habitats. To truly experience wellness on Grand Cayman, though, you have to know where to look.
Located in the lively waterfront town of Camana Bay, Jessie’s Juice Bar is also a great place to refuel on a wellness trip to Grand Cayman. You can’t go wrong with the plant-based restaurant’s wraps, made from your choice of whole wheat or veggie flax and stuffed with perfectly ripe veggies and savory dressing. Need a fix for your sweet tooth? Try one of Jessie’s tangy fruit pops, cold-pressed juices or baked treats.
