Cayman Islands

Alex Robinson, www.alexrobinsonphotography.co.ukThese three low-lying little islands south of Cuba are green with pine and mangroves. Seven Mile Beach along the west side of Grand Cayman provides a welcome break for workers in the offshore financial centre. Nature conservation is top priority here, both on land and under water and there are a number of sanctuaries in the ponds and wetlands. The sister islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are quiet, unhurried places where you can escape the crowds and relax without giving up your creature comforts. A dive destination ranked among the world's best, the islands offer a variety of thrilling dive sites. Famous for their underwater scenery, there are tropical fish of all kinds in the waters surrounding the islands, especially in the coral reefs, and green turtles are now increasing in numbers, having been deliberately restocked by excess hatchings at the Cayman Turtle Farm.
