Holidaymakers looking for a beautiful place to stay in the Caribbean should try Little Cayman. This beautiful place is one of the Cayman Islands located 75 miles north east of Grand Cayman and is a great location for many interesting activities. Here visitors will find numerous different places to stay including self catering accommodation, holiday homes, cottages and condos.
The small island of Little Cayman has some lovely sandy beaches that are ideal for relaxing and catching some sun. The waters here are also pleasant for swimming as well as kayaking and sailing. Scuba diving is particularly popular on the north of the island at Bloody Bay and Jackson’s Bight.
Holidaymakers can also participate in deep sea and freshwater fishing trips. The island is only 10 square miles in size and can be easily explored by hikers or by bicycle. Other popular activities on the island include beachcombing and bird watching.
There are a handful of bars and restaurants on the island with a mix of Caribbean, American and other international cuisine.

There are places too for self catering holidaymakers to purchase hardware, groceries and supplies.
