If you plan to have a vacation in Cayman Islands, it is worth noting the places in the islands where most people visit and enjoy. The islands offer unique tourist attractions which include Sting Ray City, the Cayman Turtle Farm, and Pedro St. James Historic Site. Below are some of the islands? best spots.
The Sting Ray City offers visitors an opportunity to have a close encounter with large stingrays. You might love the idea of stepping out from a boat into three feet of water on a sandbar and have legs rubbed with the wings of stingrays. It is said that the stingrays in the area became used to human touch years ago. This happened because fishermen would stop their boats on the side to clean the fish they caught and throw its remains over the side.
The Rum Point is a picturesque place on the side of Grand Cayman where you can hang out for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and dining. The place is ideal for these activities because of its casual island atmosphere.
The Grand Cayman’s Q. E. II Botanic Park is a two-acre Heritage Garden. It showcases a restored early 20th century, three-room, zinc-roofed Caymanian wooden cottage. You can also relax on its 2.5 acres floral garden that displays hundreds of tropical and sub tropical plants.
The Cayman Islands National Museum offers you more than 2,000 items of historical artifacts. These include old coins, rare documents, and natural history specimens. The private collection of historic memorabilia of the late Ira Thompson is said to be the museum?s foundation.
