The smallest of the three Cayman Islands, Little Cayman is a relaxed and extremely secluded getaway from the city centers of Grand Cayman. Its panoramic views, perfectly untouched beaches, and the small island way of life make Little Cayman the perfect destination for groups looking to escape.
As the smallest island, Little Cayman may appear to have fewer amenities than its big sisters. However, it remains a friendly, pure, and attractive environment filled with natural wonders and history. The island has over 50 unique diving spots alone. In the bright blue Caribbean off the island’s coast, you can find reef sharks, eagle rays, octopus, lobster, and nearly every variety of tropical fish. An excellent SCUBA and snorkeling destination, Little Cayman is practically made for wildlife viewing.
The island has nearly as much wildlife interest on land as in the sea. Head to the Booby Pond Nature Reserve to see the largest colony of Red-Footed Boobies in the Western Hemisphere. Bird watchers will delight in spotting numerous exotic bird species among the picturesque Red-Footed Boobies.
South Hole Sound is the small island’s largest enclosed lagoon boasting a shallow stretch of explorable water roughly two miles long. In these protected waters visitors can explore the pools and wildlife swimming through the sea as well as the sinkhole off the coast of Blossom Village. Dry off for a while and explore the historic Blossom Village where you can tour the original site of the island’s settlement or head off to other parts of the island and visit the Bloody Bay Marine Park, Jackson Pond, or the Little Cayman Museum.
