Heather on Her Travels: The Cayman Islands: Watersports, Stingray City and the Best Beaches in Grand Cayman

06 May 2019

The history of the Cayman Islands has been shaped by the sea for centuries, with generations of turtle fishermen and sailors who worked on merchant ships around the world, their maritime skills in high demand. The charms of this Caribbean island seem bound up with the ocean, with the endless white sand of Seven Mile Beach, surrounded by reefs that attract divers and snorkeling, and sandbars where you can swim with the rays at “Stingray city”, that most iconic of things to do in the Cayman Islands.

Rum Point is on the north side of Grand Cayman and it takes around 40 minutes to drive there from the island capital of George Town – not too far but perhaps more convenient to visit as part of a boat excursion to Stingray City. Another way to reach Rum Point from the West Bay area, is to take the Cayman Ferries service from Camana Bay to the Kaibo Beach Bar and then take the shuttle bus to Rum Point – cost is $25US round trip.
