You are cruising east, along the coastal road known as Queen’s Highway, with the top down, breathing in the cool, salty air and quietly observing the Cayman Islands lifestyle while the morning sun shimmers on the ocean. Before the day is over, you will glide through the sea, sail with friends while sipping perfectly aged rum and fresh juices, enjoy local snapper in a coconut rundown sauce and laugh so much it hurts. As a breezy evening descends, the warmth of the day’s fun lingers and you bask in the joy and tranquility of belonging here, in this place called home.
This is Cayman
Live like you’ve dreamed. The Cayman Islands is a place where you can choose to soak up your favourite comforts undisturbed in secluded bliss or among the adventurers, the innovators, the thrillseekers and the welcoming locals who all call this place home. You get to decide where to mingle, what to savour and how to relax.
As you consider purchasing Grand Cayman luxury real estate and making the Cayman Islands your new home, here are 10 things to consider before swapping city life for island life.
We live by “Caymankind.” Strangers say hello, pedestrians wave and if you need a ride, just throw up a thumb and the next car to pass is likely to give you a lift.
Background noise in Grand Cayman consists of gentle, crashing waves, soothing North Sound breezes, friendly chirping iguanas and charming clucking chickens.
In Grand Cayman, a 20-minute journey is...10 minutes too long.
We drive on the left and we participate in roadside hospitality, letting people through is the norm and a honk means, “Thank you!”
Beach walks count as exercise.
We live by island time; the only time you rush is for happy hour.
The warm salty air is not only healing and restorative, but uplifts your mood everywhere you go.
Just as a large city, we are spoilt for culinary choice! Only here, we have the added benefit of an array of local food at your fingertips, from freshly caught fish, lobster and conch to organic fruits and vegetables.
It’s summertime every day. This means no woolly sweaters, gloves or boots required — ever.
No matter where you are on island, watching our magical sunsets in hues of orange, red and purple never gets old.
