After seeing hundreds of sea turtles living there, Christopher Columbus named the island ‘Tortugas ‘. The name has changed but the animals still inhabit The Cayman Islands as they did many centuries ago, making the place special and unique. The territory, considered to be a part of Western Caribbean Zone, lying between Jamaica, Cuba and The Yucatan Peninsula, comprises three islands of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac and it is a paradise for sailors and water sports enthusiasts. You’d like to slow down time when you’re on The Cayman Islands – there’s so much to see and do. For example, The National Museum in George Town, the capital, is definitely worth a visit. Then, take a trip to the turtle farm, Boatswain’s Beach – a home to 16 000 of these spectacular creatures, where you might just get the last chance to admire some of the endangered species. But the area’s reputation as a holiday hot spot extends well beyond the spectacular marine life. Don’t forget to take a tour of the rum distillery and sample the local speciality.
For the lovers of sunbathing – go to the Seven Mile Beach and feel the soft, white sand underneath your feet. The beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. And if you want to take a break from the bustling shore, we recommend a visit to Queen Elisabeth II Botanic Park which features a lot of the Cayman Islands‘ native flora. In Stingray City, a home to a whole fleet of southern stingrays, we can observe and even play with these majestic animals, which don’t see any problem in meeting people up close. As members of the European Union we don’t need a visa to travel to The Caymans so the only thing that you need to do is…book your holidays right now!
