Grand Cayman is the largest island within the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory that’s located in the Caribbean. Many guests come each year to enjoy complete relaxation, exciting nightlife, awesome underwater visuals, and delicious dining. The island attracts all ages, and includes fun for the whole family. The surrounding hiking trails and beaches are beautiful. If you’re thinking of planning a trip, now is a great time. Here at the Sunshine Suites Resort, we offer a world-class, boutique experience, without the hefty price tag.
The west side of the Grand Cayman Island features the famous Seven Mile Beach. With gorgeous white sands stretching as far as the eye can see, cabanas are also available to rent right out by the ocean. Another cool fact about the island is that it’s one of the least populated in the Caribbean. It’s also often rated as having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And when you’re ready to step away from the beach, the city of George Town is easy to explore and full of shopping and sights to see.
Another interesting fact: two of the nearby sister islands were spotted by Christopher Columbus all the way back in 1503. Hundreds of years later, Commissioner Sir Allen Cardinall was one of the first officials to recognize the Grand Cayman Island’s tourism opportunity, connecting many of the public buildings with roads. As the Grand Cayman Island grew in population, so did the tourist attractions and businesses on the island.
If you take a trip up to the north you’ll find Stingray City, a sandbar and lagoon where you and your family will have the rare opportunity to learn more about and swim with the friendly Southern Stingrays. The eastern region features a botanical park, the Wreck of the Ten Sail, and plenty of local restaurants with delicious seafood. The Grand Cayman Island is home to over 50,000 residents, and is about 76 square miles.
