Pirates Point Resort on Little Cayman is without exception our favorite travel and dive destination in the world. Our fifth visit, and it's always like coming home! Little Cayman is a terrific, isolated gem in the Carribean, the diving is world class, and Pirates Point combines all of best aspects of a great vacation. Pirates Point is small - 10 rooms, never more than one dive boat's worth of divers. The ocean front cottages with open windows feature the best sleeping ever with the waves crashing up on the shore outside your door. The staff is superb. Headed by world renowned Gladys Howard - blue ribbon chef and domino master, excellent dive masters Gay, Martha, Michelle, Bob and Mike, incredible kitchen maestros Jeff and Diane. Pirates Point is our "Cheers" - where everyone knows your name! Good for experienced divers and beginners alike (our 13 year old son was completing his open water certification), the fish and reef life is full, and the color looking into the deep off the Walls is not to be missed. As Gershwin wrote, the "living is easy..." Wake up to a bell calling you to breakfast, take off for two leisurely dives on the second bell, come back to a third bell summoning you to an amazing outdoors lunch spread, and then after a long nap in the hammocks, the fourth bell of the day brings us together for drinks, hors d'ouevres in the bar, and a suptuous evening feast, all followed by cutthroat dominoes and crashing. Do NOT come here if this simplicity does not appeal to you - if you're the kind of traveller who needs "action" - particularly at night - stay away. If eating, sleeping and diving is your thing, this is the place.
