Cayman islands,probably the most beautiful island of Carribean ,i would rather say one of the most beautiful island on earth.It comes under British territory so you will come across to the lot of diversity here.

Fortunately ,we were not the visitor here and were there for work ,so we had enormous amount of time to explore the places.

If someone likes to travel outside India (especially, for divers this place is heaven) then this place is one of the good option,though its little costly but its worth spending here.Probably ,very small part of population is aware of this place.Being a small island ,it could not be known much .This island is full of colorful marine life. In this island there are lot of suites ,hotel rooms available based on your budget cost.There are suites available where you have kitchen attached to them, so if you like home cooked food- you have plenty of options.Having said that, there are plenty of Indian eateries from which you can tickle your taste buds.

We had a stay in sunshine suites which is across the seven mile beach.

Here you will come across the lot of new activities which you might not have done earlier.

Stingray City Tour-

This was our one of the lifetime experience.This tour has got three stops ,one is for snorkeling,second is for stingray and third is for starfish.So,if you are not hydrophobic then you can enjoy snorkeling because water is not too deep here and you will see corals here .

For stingray point no need to be scared because the water is just 4 feet here ,but there you will encounter lot of sting rays.Don't panic if the fish comes near you ,because if you create chaos there then you will end up hurting yourself or fish.Stingrays are very friendly you can kiss them,you can hold them, so don't be afraid of them. Then last is star fish point where your guide will show you lot of starfishes .

Enjoy the underwater marine life without getting wet. So there are very few places in world where you can enjoy this submarine.This submarine goes till the 100 ft depth of water, where you will be able to see lot of different color fishes ,turtles and many more.This tour takes approx. one and half hour.This submarine you need to book it prior, as this remains full most of time.

As the name itself suggest that this tour happens in night.So,there are 3 varieties of bioluminiscent creatures that live nearshore in Caribbean waters. In the right conditions,people can be graced with the chance to see the water light up, producing a unique and memorable visual experience.We did this tour with the boat but this you can do with kayaks as well if you are fond of kayaking.

Pirates festival

Most of the people must have heard about the "Pirates of Caribbean" movie.So ,yes in this festival we were able to see lot of pirates(not the actual ones) where they come to Island through boat .This festival is full of entertainment which includes live music, pirate performers, a parade,fire works and a few surprises in between.This festival usually happens in mid of November and it lasts for 4-5 days.It is really really a good experience of Caribbean. And probably you will not observe this kind of festival in many places.So,try to plan your visit during this time.

One more place i would like to highlight i.e. Camana Bay.If anyone is visiting Cayman then don't miss this place in your bucket list.Its a lively water front town of Grand Cayman.This place has got something for everyone.Fountain for kids ,restaurants according to different taste buds ,cinema,and many more world class shops for shopping.

So .this is not all it is just the highlights of Cayman islands .Once you go there you will find many more stuff to do.Thing which i miss about Cayman most is the serenity and its crystal clear water.So do visit this place you are gonna love it.
