Grand Cayman is the Caribbean Vacation Destination Your Family Deserves

There’s nothing like a family vacation. That special time when you’re all together, with no responsibilities, and your only goal is to have fun and make memories to last a lifetime. If you’re considering the Caribbean for your next getaway, you should look no farther than Grand Cayman. As US News & World Report states, “The charming Cayman Islands continue to be a coveted Caribbean getaway for both adventure- and relaxation-seeking travelers.” We couldn’t agree more.

With friendly locals, a laid back vibe and abundant natural beauty, Grand Cayman boasts many family-friendly resorts located on coveted Seven Mile Beach, that are close to shops, restaurants and bars. Top resorts include: The Ritz Carlton, The Westin, Caribbean Club, Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort and the Kimpton Seafire Resort.

The Westin Grand Cayman

Top of our list of Grand Cayman must-do’s is to charter a boat. What a surprise! Chartering a boat with an experienced crew to show you the island will be the highlight of your trip. It’s a good idea to check out private yacht charters, like yours truly, if you have children with you. That way you have full use of the yacht, including restrooms and staterooms, for when the kids need a break. An air conditioned cabin are a welcome respite to enjoy a snack or a nap. Comfortable sun pad and pillows on the deck are a fabulous way to check out the scenic views while relaxing for a bit.

Our top 3 places to visit in Grand Cayman:

Seven Mile Beach is ranked as the #5 Best Caribbean Beaches by Trip Advisor, as well as the #9 Best Place to Visit in the Caribbean. It is truly the crown jewel of Grand Cayman. With soft coral sand beaches, crystal clear water with plenty of shallows and calm waves, it is the perfect beach for children (and adults) to frolic and soak up the sun. It’s not too crowded and has easy access to the resorts, bars and restaurants, shops and many natural wonders. Because the water is shallow and calm, it’s a great place to snorkel and explore, even with little ones in tow. There are plenty of tall palms and trees around when a spot of shade is in order, as well as tons of room for running around and playing catch.

Stingray City is a Grand Cayman must-do and one of our most favorite places to share with our guests. It’s the only place where you can swim and feed the stingrays in their natural habitat and these interactive swims are a once-in-a-lifetime experience for parents and children alike. When we have the chance, we like to take our charters out to Stingray City early in the day when other people aren’t around so our guests can meet and greet the stingrays uninterrupted. The Sandbar area is shallow, about 2-4 deep, and is ideal for children to explore and even snorkel. The stingrays are friendly, soft and gentle creatures that love to be petted and will often eat from your hands.

Starfish Point is located just about 15 minutes from Stingray City and is almost always a stop we include in our charters. This secluded beach has calm, shallow, clear water for you to easily see the stunning red cushion starfish below.  You don’t even need snorkel gear! It’s the perfect place to take people of all ages and abilities because you don’t even need to know how to swim to experience it.

Food

Food is such an important part of any family vacation that we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about it. When you’re traveling with kids, especially picky eaters, it can be difficult to find dining options to please the whole family. Grand Cayman is a foodie’s paradise, often referred to as the ‘Caribbean’s Culinary Capital’. We host one-of-a-kind food festivals throughout the year and our restaurants offer everything from local casual fare to five star dining, with cuisines from all over the world represented. The wide variety of restaurants we have should appease even the pickiest of eaters, but during your time on the water, you may not have the options your family needs. That’s why we offer many food options and work with our guests to create a menu that works best for their group. We even have private chefs available to be on board to cook a Five Star Barbecue to be served on the boat or the beach.
