The Cayman Islands

Most say they are visiting Cayman Island when referring to our tropical vacation destination on Seven Mile Beach. In reality, the Cayman Islands represent a three-island group; Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean. We drive on the left side of the road, we have the Queen Elizabeth II Royal Botannic Park here, and our currency displays images of the Queen alongside our rich marine life.

When visiting us at Harbour Heights, you are visiting Grand Cayman Island. It is the largest of the three-island group. Grand Cayman is about 22 miles long – with an average width of 4 miles, and is about 76 square miles. We are 150 miles south of Cuba and 165 miles northwest of Jamaica. It is the most populated island and a very popular vacation destination!

Cayman Brac is a smaller island about 90 miles northeast of Grand Cayman. It is about 12 miles long with an average width of 1.25 miles and is about 15 square miles in size. This island is a 30-minute flight away from Grand Cayman. It is known for its breathtaking limestone bluff which attracts many types of nesting seabirds. It is also famous for diving and its caves. The National Trust Parrot Preserve is located on Cayman Brac. There are hiking trails and wrecks to dive on Cayman Brac. 

Little Cayman is the smallest island about 5 miles west of Cayman Brac. It is about 10 miles long with an average width of just over a mile. It is an area of about 11 square miles. Jacques Cousteau declared Little Cayman’s waters to be among the top three diving sites in the world. Reefs, shipwrecks, and Little Cayman’s Bloody Bay Wall are a must when diving around the island. Walk the trails or rent bicycles to traverse the island above water. 

Getting to Cayman Brac or Little Cayman is easy, Cayman Airways. 

(Think about extending your stay and visiting one or both of our sister islands after visiting us at Harbour Heights. You won’t be disappointed.)
