Grand Cayman is the largest of the 3 islands and also the commercial centre. Its famous 7 mile beach is a favourite of sun worshippers from all over the world. Cayman Brac is small, isolated and ruggedly beautiful with dramatic cliffs, quiet beaches and is home to ‘the underwater Grand Canyon’ popular for scuba adventures whilst Little Cayman is known for Bloody Bay, a favourite spot of divers for its vast range of sea life.
Their beauty and the islands’ liberal tax laws attract harassed executives for both work and play. The tax-free status of the Cayman Islands, the British Crown Colony is said to have been granted by King George III of England in gratitude to the islanders after they saved the crews of 10 merchant ships wrecked off the coast in 1788.
