Whilst we enjoy practically perfect weather year round, March and April are months filled with
lots of activities and bright colours in the form of a spectacle of tents of all shapes and sizes that line our beaches filled with Easter campers.
One of the most religious holidays in the Cayman Islands, Good Friday, 10 April, and Easter Monday, 13 April, are both public holidays. This is a time when families not only attend church, but also devote the long weekend to camping on beaches all over the Cayman Islands. It’s a great time for families and friends to get together and enjoy Cayman’s natural beauty. Children and adults spend the long weekend swimming, fishing, playing games, cooking out and generally having a good time.
The true colour and jewels of our three Islands is our people. The Cayman people are kind, giving and passionate. Seek them out. You will have a happier visit and make many wonderful memories.
The smallest of our Islands, Little Cayman, is probably the most laid back. There are few motorists on Little Cayman — most people get around by bicycle — and those who you do meet on the roadway are sure to offer a kind wave.
Cayman Brac boasts the impressive Bluff that rises to 140 feet out of the sea. There you will find adventure unlike that on Grand Cayman or Little Cayman. If you have access to a computer, go to itsyourstoexplore.com to find out the different activities that can be had on both Sister Islands.
Before you leave, make sure you take your taste buds on a culinary adventure, from local fare to fine dining in one of our many top-star restaurants. There is a reason the Cayman Islands is known the world over as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean.
Whether you are here as a visitor or to work, I welcome you to the Cayman Islands and invite you to embrace the entire Cayman Islands experience. You will only then begin to understand why we say we are an island in the Caribbean Sea instead of just another Caribbean Island.
I truly believe that your stay with us will be nothing less than magnificent. Please, enjoy your visit and once again, I welcome you to the Cayman Islands.
The Hon. Alden McLaughlin, MBE, JP, MLA Premier of the Cayman Islands
