We have been enjoying vacation in the Cayman's for many years now.
This year we had extended family. I wanted to thank Trip Advisor's
Destination Experts for some great tips. We had a group of 11 one week and 13 the next (ages ranging from 9 to 74) to keep entertained.
Our divers enjoyed diving with Deep Blue Divers and some shore dives. They all loved the the Wreck of the Kittiwake .
The snorkelers enjoyed Cemetery Beach, Smith Cove, and areas around Rum Point . If you are not a strong swimmer or have a small child there is a shallow spot at Cemetery Beach that has quite a few fish. The reef is a bit of a swim. Rum Point is also shallow. Hope to explore Testudo's snorkel spots next time.
My daughter and niece enjoyed Nicki's Horseback riding. It was just the two of them and Nicki. She takes experienced riders and no more than 4 people.
My 9 year old and her cousin could not stop talking about swimming with Sally at Dolphin Cove. I was impressed by the facility and care of the dolphins. If you are not participating in the dolphin swim you can watch from a dock and enjoy the show. Our kid's grand mom enjoyed watching.
Restaurants we enjoyed that accommodate large groups
were Macabucos, Sunset House, Guy Harvey, Over The Edge, and Legends ( for sport events on t v ,or rain). Calypso Grill and Abacus are 2 fine dining restaurants we enjoy . If you are looking for fine dining there are no shortage of great restaurants.
Some comments from our first time visitors.
Everyone on the island is so friendly!
We love that no one is trying to sell things on the beach.
The soft sand and calm warm water is so relaxing. Along, with walking the beach and talking with locals and other tourists. Loved all the dog activities from dogs on paddle board to kayaks. The funniest was the golden retriever that would not let his owners swim. He felt like he had to save them every time they got into the water.
Seeing star fish in a natural setting was very exciting for my sister!
She will be making note cards from pixs.
At 74 years old and not a swimmer you can enjoy the water and floating.
The ease of a small airport and the short distance to SMB.
Cocktails on the beach are the best!
