Cayman Islands

Bespoke Tailor Made Holidays & Honeymoons to The Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are in the Western Caribbean, just 480 miles south of Miami in USA and 180 miles northwest of Jamaica.  There are three low lying Cayman Island which are actually peaks of an underwater mountain range, which makes for crystal clear diving and snorkelling.  The warm, clear waters and sandy beaches are perfect for enjoying the sun and sand and although there is modern technology here, it’s really a place that people go to escape the world and is a fabulous wedding and honeymoon destination.

Grand Cayman is the largest of the islands but is still only 76 sq miles. Little Cayman is the smallest at just 10 sq miles and Cayman Brac is 14 sq miles and the furthest east.  There are direct flights from London to Grand Cayman 4 times a week or you can connect via the USA, Jamaica or Cuba.

There are no compulsory vaccinations, no visa is required and the average year round temperature is in the late 20s C. The heaviest rain falls May to October. George Town on Grand Cayman is the capital and main airport, there are small airport on the other two islands.

Most hotels and restaurants can be found to the west coast of Grand Cayman on the Seven Mile Beach.  This area has gentle, sloping, sandy beaches great for families and also for couples. Other great beaches can be found at Rum Point, North Side and Little Cayman’s Point of Sand.  The other islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are about 40 mins by air from Grand Cayman and perfect for nature and bird watching holidays. There are various marine and nature parks all around the Cayman Islands. For nature lovers, head to Cayman Brac for birdwatching on the bluff where you can see Frigate Birds, Brown Boobies, Peregrine Falcons and the rare Black Parrot in their natural habitat.  Boatswain’s Beach is home to more than 14,000 Green Sea Turtles and the visitor centre lets you see these creatures from tiny babies to full grown adults. The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is home to tropical plants of the Cayman Islands. Follow a trail through lush gardens with over 300 species of native plants and fabulous colourful birds.

Diving is a major pastime in the Caymans and Little Cayman is home to a legendary dive site, a sheer coral wall called Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park, which begins at 20ft and plunges to 6000ft. You can also go under water in the Atlantis submarine around the Caymans and swim with gentle Southern Stingrays in shallow waters at the Stingray City visitor centre. Sailing, kayaking and kite surfing are other popular water sports here.

Pedro St James on Grand Cayman, in the Savannah area has a wonderful heritage and is a reconstruction of the Great House originally built in 1780, set in magnificent grounds. If you like dining out you will be spoilt on the Cayman Islands with about 150 restaurants on Grand Cayman alone!  If you want to explore, I can arrange a hire car for you to get around the main island on a self drive holiday.

All I can say is AWESOME!!!!!! The staff and other visitors at The Body Holiday were so friendly, I didn't feel uncomfortable as a solo traveller (after the first fifteen minutes of watching others obviously!) at all. The hosted communal evening meals were lively, friendly, interesting discussions with perfect strangers, several of whom I subsequently spent meal times with. The service was fantastic, the staff were friendly and I will definitely be looking to travel there again. I would also like to say thank you for putting me on to such a wonderful spot and I would love it if more places were so open to solo travellers and accommodating to different needs. All in all I would score it 10 out of 10!

Our holiday to Dominican Republic was a huge success, thank you! We loved the beautifully conceived "travel packs" that added a "wow" factor! The holiday was also a cloak-and-dagger operation for me to propose to Sophie. The hotel excelled itself on providing 10 restaurants with a la carte offerings - food was superb. Thank you for all your help in making this special holiday happen!

Everything was spot on. The second hotel was excellent - well recommended. Shirley heights on Sunday and the excellence 360 island trip are brilliant.

Cuba – what an amazing country ... the noise and bustle of Havanna, the cars, the history, the people, a place stopped in time, interesting scenery, history and culture and the most beautiful beaches!

Julie gave us an excellent service for our holiday to Barbados. She listened to our requirements, gave informed advice and provided more than we had asked for! We will use her again and will recommend her to family and friends.

Our Caribbean holiday to Antigua was fantastic!! The Inn at English Harbour was really beautiful, quiet and tranquil. Did some excellent snorkelling and a couple of tours as well. Absolutely perfect, certainly one of the best holidays we've had. Thank you so much for organising it, we'll be back for more!

It was lovely to have Jules to sort everything out for us, and it certainly meant that we could relax and get on with organising the other parts of our wedding safe in the knowledge that our honeymoon was being taken care of for us. Everything went as smoothly as it could be from start to finish, we had zero problems throughout.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
