Cayman Islands

Best for Christmas traditions and events

If you want to experience the ultimate Caribbean Christmas, the Cayman Islands are the place to go.

They are packed with festive activities such as weekly Christmas movie screenings under the stars, a gingerbread house workshop on December 17, carol concerts, regular visits from Father Christmas and the Cayman 27’s Parade of Lights, where brightly lit boats sail into the harbour in Camana Bay.

A trip to George Town is a must when visiting the Cayman Islands — go for a stroll down Seven Mile Beach, one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, before settling down for a meal at either Blue by Eric Ripert or Agua Restaurant & Lounge, depending on which direction you're walking. Blue by Eric Ripert features an elegant spread of locally sourced seafood while Agua offers unrivalled ceviche.

For chic evening cocktails followed by partying into the early hours there are a myriad of options, such as Abacus in Camana Bay, Periwinkle on Seven Mile Beach and Tiki Beach.

After all the socialising in some of the best Caribbean party spots, be sure to book in the La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carton for a cellular swiss ice crystal facial to help recover.

While Grand Cayman offers more modern pleasures, yachties should save plenty of time to tender over to Cayman Brac for a spot of cave exploration and to Little Cayman to see the birds nesting in the Booby Pond Reserve and to dive the Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park, one of the best scuba diving spots in the world.
