"Not all about the Bahamas"
To the outsider the Cayman Islands - Cayman Brac, Grand Cayman, and Little Cayman - are almost always equated with watersports and glorious beaches, plus offshore banking opportunities. This is hardly surprising, since the Cayman Islands do offer world-class scuba diving in crystal-clear waters as well as a tax-free haven. But these three islands have so much more to offer the traveler who's willing to wander off the traditional tourist paths, walk away from the beachside resorts, and explore by themselves.
The Caymans are ultra-prosperous and safe, with great resorts, fabulous watersports, and terrific restaurants. A major stop for cruise ships, there are 1,800,000 cruise visitors per year, plus 250,000+ arriving by plane. Lots of detail on the shopping, dining, hotels, sightseeing, and entertainment, based on personal visits by the authors plus a special emphasis on activities such as boating, fishing, golf, walking, biking, scuba diving, snorkeling, and bird watching.
