ABOUT LITTLE CAYMAN
Dream of a tropical island hideaway… a paradise where your cares drift away with the morning dew… a magical place to soothe your soul, revive your spirit and uncover a world where time melts into a crimson sunset. Escape to Little Cayman and give yourself over to relaxation. Experience nature’s grandeur above or below the sea in an underwater kingdom of liquid crystal, teeming with life and color. Scuba Diving Magazine ranked Little Cayman “one of the world’s premier dive destinations with pristine quality and excellent visibility”.
Little Cayman is the smallest and least developed of the three Cayman Islands, located 87 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, five miles west of Cayman Brac, 480 miles from Miami and 90 miles south of Havana. Commercial air service is provided by Cayman Airways Express flights running between Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
The island itself – just 10 miles long and 1 mile wide – has 22 miles of spectacular coastline and, just offshore, abundantly populated coral reefs teeming with over 150 kinds of coral and more than 500 species of fish.
First discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1503 and rarely visited (except for the occasional pirate) until recent times, Little Cayman is now a favorite destination of modern day explorers, photographers, naturalists and, of course, divers. Little Cayman is an island of incredible beauty and unspoiled surroundings that offers a magnificent serenity. You’ll understand once you arrive.
