Cayman Islands Yacht Charter Guide
Three striking islands create the Caymans, consisting of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1503, these islands are a haven for watersports enthusiasts. The translucent, deep water offers incredible diving and anchorage opportunities during a Cayman Islands yacht charter.
Grand Cayman, the largest of the sister islands, is home to the capital of the Caymans, George Town. Cosmopolitan, George Town is ripe with incredible eateries, responsible for Grand Cayman’s reputation as a culinary gem of the Caribbean. Seven Mile Beach on the western shore of Grand Cayman has won accolades as the Caribbean’s best beach. Take advantage of this sun-drenched strand by sunning or sipping cocktails and enjoy the view from one of the lovely bars and restaurant near by. Meander through Grand Harbour Centre for high-end shopping, art galleries and museums.
