Cayman Islands Honeymoons
If you’re looking to for a private, luxurious getaway, consider the Cayman Islands. What you’ll find here are breath-taking aqua-blue waters and more than seven miles of beaches. What you won’t find are all-inclusive resorts and beachside peddling (think hair braiding), which makes this trio of islands a breath of fresh air in the heart of the Caribbean Sea.

Why To Go
- Grand Cayman: The largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman boasts many options for vacationers, from five-star resorts on the powdery, seven-mile beach to little bed-and-breakfasts along the way. Don’t miss shopping in historic Georgetown, where you’ll find high-end retailers like Cartier and Tiffany & Co. right alongside Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and the Hard Rock Cafe. If you’d rather get up close with creatures of the deep, Sting Ray City is just a ten-minute boat ride away, or you may be able to snorkel in live reefs just a short swim from your hotel. If lounging around with a frozen drink in hand is more your style, don’t leave without ordering a mudslide at beachside Rum Point.
- Cayman Brac: Adventurous couples will want to check out Cayman Brac, a 40-minute plane ride from Grand Cayman. These rugged 14 square miles feature a dramatic 140-foot bluff that is home to dozens of caves worth exploring, alongside underwater shipwrecks and exotic woodlands teeming with tropical birds.
- Little Cayman: The Cayman Islands are renowned for their diving opportunities, which become even more outstanding on Little Cayman Just a 20-minute plane ride from Grand Cayman, this 10-mile long island is home to 50 dive sites, including 6,000-foot sheer coral wall. If you don’t want to dive, you’ll have no problem finding a quite respite here — since the island has just 170 residents, romance abounds on uninhabited beaches and the almost private South Hole Lagoon.
