This is the port where cruise ships come in. Compact, busy George Town is the business, dining, drinking and shopping centre of Grand Cayman. Hog-Sty Bay saw much action seawards during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; now see water festivals, pirates, Batabano and visit Cayman heritage in the gingerbread building housing the National Museum on the seafront. Dive or snorkel straight off the beach on Bob Soto's Cheeseburger Reef, the closest reef to town. Go west to 7 mile beach and West Bay, home to 'Hell' from where you can send a postcard to friends. Go east to Rum Point, or hike the National Trust Mastic Trail wilderness and the Botanic Park. Go Northside to more remote beaches and quiet retreats. Best of all, fly over to Cayman Brac or Little Cayman, two islands only a half hour away to enjoy real wilderness, beaches, reefs, butterflies and wild endemic iguanas that 'have right of way'. Caribbean wonderland, hardly changed. A bonus - hardly any mosquitoes or biting insects!
