This was a fun place to stop while we were touring the Island. "Hell" is a pile of volcanic rock sticking up out of the ground.There were several chickens running around the parking lot. Apparently they lived close by. There were a few shops for tourists to by souvenirs and a mail box so postcards can be sent from "Hell."

Worth a quick stop if you're driving by or nearby. It's basically a small tourist trap at the side of the road with a gift shop and some black volcanic rocks sticking up from the ground. Kind of neat to say you were in Hell or even better, mail a postcard from the little gift shop. It will be postmarked... More

Neat enough to see, worth a ten minute stop to check out, but I wouldn't make a special trip there. Even the touristy guidebooks tell you don't expect to spend more than 15 minutes. No tour buses were there when we went, which was good. Little old lady in the gift shop was entertaining to talk to. Have a Hell... More

Fairly easy to find on a map and a 20 ish minute drive from seven mile beach hotels. Only good to say that you've been and use the slogans "hell and back" and the like. The limestone formations were actually very cool and surprising because pictures do not show it justice. In a kind of weird neighborhood, but just to... More

Hell.... It was an interesting stop. The guide explained the rock formation of this location. It truly would give you the impression of hell because nothing apparently can live in that area!!

Grand Cayman was the first port of call on our cruise from Tampa. It was one of the 4 places that the coach stopped off at on a short tour of the island. Except to say you've been there, it would have been a place I would have chosen. incredible rock formations, a small shop, which was heaving with tourists... More

Yes it's touristy, but what the Hell? This tiny village is located on a patch incredibly jagged rock formations called ironshore. There are nearby giftshops where you can buy a postcard. Mail it at Hell's small Post Office and you can tell all of your friends that "I've been to Hell and back!" :)

This was our 4th trip to Grand Cayman dating back to 1999. On our first trip we visited Hell and wanted to show our sons this free attraction. We were somewhat disappointed. There was trash laying just inside the railings on the observation decks. Also the standin (a life-sized cutout of Satan you can put your face in) looks like... More

This is a neat little place that is a little hard to find. There's not much there - a couple of shops & a post office - but the black rock formations are kind of cool looking. It's mainly to novelty of saying you've been to Hell. Go see it if you have the time, but it's not a must... More
