THE 'FRIENDLIEST' ISLAND: Little Cayman is best known for its diving, fishing, snorkeling, and internationally protected bird sanctuaries. Jacques Cousteau rated the Bloody Bay dive site on the north west end as his #3 best dive site in the world! It has also been rated as the friendliest place to visit by Forbes Magazine. Little Cayman Island lies 85 miles east of Grand Cayman, 450 miles south of Miami and 120 miles south of Cuba. The weather from December through May is consistent and reliable, averaging to 80 to 85 degrees with nice island breezes. The island is only 1 mile wide and 10 miles long and is remarkably undeveloped and under populated. There are only 150 full time residents.

There are charters available for blue water-deep sea fishing as well as guides for fly fishing. Call or email the owner for information and recommendations.
RESTAURANTS: There are 5 good restaurants on the island, each associated with the five resorts on the island. Prices range from moderate: Hungry Iguana and Beach Bum Cafe to expensive: Pirates' Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach Resort.
GETTING THERE. You will first need to fly to Grand Cayman which most major carriers service. From Grand your only option is to take a 25 minute (90 mile) flight on Cayman Airways to Little Cayman which is $151.00 USD for a round trip ticket. We recommend that you book a 2 hour layover on Grand so you can be sure to make the Cayman Airways flight to Little Cayman if your flight to Grand is delayed.

About Brian Essi
Being avid divers, snorkelers, beachcombers, and fisherman/fishing woman, we love getting away from it all and back to nature. All three of our children are also divers and love the water.
Brian Essi purchased this house in 2013
Why Brian Essi chose Little Cayman
After decades of traveling and diving throughout the Caribbean, we found that when we returned to many places years later, they were somewhat ruined by high rises and too many tourists. Little Cayman is in a time warp but still has most of the amenities of more developed places. We chose Little Cayman Island for a number of reasons. 1. Great diving, fishing, snorkeling and beach-combing. 2. The island is clean, well preserved and underdeveloped--no large resorts and no cruise ships. 3. No crime: there is law and order here and a good government---very safe--also, medical services on island and a world class hospital close by on Grand Cayman. 4. Our house is on the quite side of the island and its like having miles of sand beach all to ourselves yet we can go to the restaurants if we don't feel like cooking.
What makes this house unique
Beautiful, peaceful, safe and remote. Everyone who lives, works and visits here is genuinely happy to be here. How refreshing and unique is that from what you may experience elsewhere.
