It may be better known as a tax haven, but you don’t need to have a chunky bank account to enjoy yourself in the Cayman Islands. Grand Cayman’s long coastline is the millionaires’ playground, filled with glitzy hotels and expensive shops. If you’re seeking somewhere less commercial, then head for Little Cayman, where you’re more likely to run into a scaly blue iguana than a blue suited banker. The clear waters and colourful reefs around the island have made it a firm favourite with divers.
Hell – Your friends back home may not believe you when you say you’ve been to Hell and back, so remember to send them a postcard! Hell is not other people, but a series of craggy ironshore formations on Grand Cayman. The formations have become quite a popular attraction, and can be seen from two viewing platforms. You can also visit the Hell-themed post office nearby or pop into the gift shop for a photo with ‘Satan’.
Aunt Sha’s Kitchen – Follow the locals to this hot pink building on Cayman Brac for some tasty homecooked goodness. The best seats in the house are on the patio during high tide, when you’ll be able to dine with the sharks as they swim in the water beneath. Enjoy Caymanian cuisine such as conch fritters, grilled kingfish and key lime pie.
Pirates Point Resort – Unlike the pirates, you won’t be suffering from scurvy while at Pirates Point Resort, as the resort’s owner is an award-winning chef, and the daily buffet spreads are laid on by highly trained gourmet chefs. With such a stellar line-up in the kitchen, you may be tempted to stay in the dining room all day. Work off those calories with a dip in the freshwater swimming pool, or a stroll along the private beach. Room rates start from around £90.
