Grand Cayman has a reputation for both its booming financial sector and extraordinary beaches.
This destination woos travelers with soft, sandy shores lined with swanky hotels and restaurants. And yet, you'll also discover a quiet, authentic Caribbean charm here as well. It's no wonder that the island's capital of George Town is a mecca for cruise ship visitors.
If you've booked a shore excursion, it will depart right from the port downtown. But those exploring on their own can stroll past funky shops and hopping restaurants from the moment they arrive on the island.
You'll also want to experience the Seven Mile Beach, which is perhaps the best-known attraction in the region. Or you could head to Smith Cove where exceptional snorkeling, cliff diving, and swimming awaits. It's also a popular spot among the locals.
And if there's one thing you must do before departing from this remarkable island, it's sampling the exquisite seafood as you dine by the sea. This video will give you more ideas for Grand Cayman shore excursions.
