Well, we are here to provide you with true peace of mind on that front because there is plenty for you and your family to experience in Grand Cayman together! There are many excursions you can enjoy with your whole family, but here are just seven of the best family experiences you can enjoy when you live in Grand Cayman!

1.Cayman Turtle Centre

The Cayman Islands were originally named “Las Tortugas,” or “The Turtles,” by Christopher Columbus in 1503 simply because there was such an abundance of these sea creatures swimming off their shores! In order to both celebrate and conserve these unique and precious animals, Grand Cayman built the Cayman Turtle Centre for both visitors and residents to enjoy.

There is a wide variety of exhibits at this conservation facility that you and your children can admire together, such as The Green’s Breeder Pond (where Green Sea Turtles can be witnessed living and even breeding in their natural habitat), Turtle Touch tanks (where visitors are able to both see and touch turtles), and even Turtle Lagoon (an exhibit that encourages visitors to swim alongside Green Sea Turtles!).

2.Stingray City
Stingray City is a unique natural attraction that is a group of sandbars, located just off the coast of Grand Cayman. With a guided tour, you can witness the ocean’s grandeur via snorkeling and swimming with Atlantic stingrays!

Stingray City is one of the most popular attractions on Grand Cayman, is exceptionally safe, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience (for tourists, that is, because you can go there whenever you like when you move to Grand Cayman!).

3.Starfish Point
If you would like to simply take a drive to a secluded beach to admire its serenity and natural beauty, you and your family should check out Starfish Point. This beach boasts pristine, white sand beaches which are littered with five-armed starfish of varying sizes in their natural environment.

Be sure to only swim near them and watch them from there. You should refrain from touching them but if it does happen, always keep them below the water’s surface. Never take them out of the water, as they can be damaged or even suffocated.

4.Seven Mile Beach
Speaking of pristine beaches, you can always head over to Seven Mile Beach for the quintessential sublime beach experience. Seven Mile Beach is the prime location for resorts on Grand Cayman but is surprisingly peaceful and enjoyable. It has been highly rated as one of the best beaches in not only the Caribbean but the world!

More specifically, this beach was rated the 12th best beach in the world by MSN. Meanwhile, TripAdvisor rated it as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. And who could possibly tire of visiting such a beach nearly every day?

5.Dolphin Discovery
Stingray City allows you to swim with stingrays and Starfish Point offers visitors the unique opportunity to swim and snorkel above stoic starfish– but Dolphin Discovery lets you swim and play with dolphins!

And you aren’t limited to just swimming alongside these bubbly and friendly mammals. You can pet them, have fast belly rides, and even kiss them! Plus, it’s located right next to the Cayman Turtle Centre in West Bay for added convenience.

6.Bioluminescent Bay
If you’re looking for a truly mesmerizing nighttime experience, look no further than Bioluminescent Bay. Bioluminescent phytoplankton, specifically dinoflagellates, gather and illuminate the water in which they reside. This is due to their effective defense mechanism which is a chemical reaction called chemiluminescence.

Their light provides this plankton with two vital advantages: to frighten predators and attract other hungry sea creatures to eat these dangerous predators. By visiting Bioluminescent Bay, you can explore this special and natural night show and you can do so on your own or through a tour.

7.Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park
For those families that are especially enticed by flora and fauna, you can always head on over to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park! There are hundreds of tropical and sub-tropical flowers and other plants to admire in the Floral Garden, all boasting impressive constructions and colors. Plus, you can check out the Grand Cayman Blue Iguana, which is the island’s endangered iguana.

The park also features a 2-acre lake, which is home to native birds and an array of other wildlife. Another unique exhibit here is the 20th-century Rankin Home in the Heritage Garden, which once housed a family of 11!
