  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to the Cayman Islands

    Cayman Islands in the Caribbean
    The three low-lying Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and rugged Cayman Brac, are located south of Cuba and north-west of Jamaica and until you visit the Cayman Islands personally, probably you do not have a correct understanding, especially of Grand Cayman. Famous for being an important offshore banking centre, Grand Cayman is a wealthy, expensive and highly developed island, still a British Crown Colony. However, its attraction lies in this very sense of wellbeing coupled with incredible beaches (Seven Mile Beach is one of the most impressive in the Caribbean - for about six miles warm translucent turquoise water laps soft white sand) and amazing water sports, particularly diving. The island of Grand Cayman is flat but lined with white sand beaches and surrounded by warm translucent turquoise seas. Colour is provided year round by bougainvillaea, orchids and thatched palms. Buildings are low-rise and much is being built in neo-colonial style. Getting out and about on Grand Cayman is very easy; there are plenty of taxis for the evening and numerous high-quality restaurants to visit and in the daytime a hire car is recommended for at least part of your stay. Little Cayman lies about 90 miles from Grand Cayman and with its dirt-strip runway, 80 or so inhabitants and handful of hotels is really like a deserted island paradise. Come to the Cayman Islands for the superb diving or for complete seclusion, perfect for a luxury holiday.
