What to do in Little Cayman

Little Cayman may be the smallest of the Cayman Islands, but it’s home to a big secret just offshore… some of the Caribbean’s best scuba diving. Bloody Bay Marine Park, despite its uninviting name, beckons divers to spots such as Jackson Wall and Bloody Bay Wall, where marine life teems. Near this “Mixing Bowl” is Marylin’s Cut, home to Jerry and Mini-Me, two famous large groupers that enjoy mingling with divers. Back on land, you’ll find the laid-back atmosphere you expect in the Caribbean, accentuated here by a relative lack of tourists. Beach bungalows, not resorts, rule here, as do iguanas, which outnumber residents by nearly 20 to 1. Biking is a popular way to spend a few hours, as is lounging in a hammock with a good book. You’ll also find many secluded beaches, like on Owen Island (which you can kayak to) or at Point o’ Sand on the island’s eastern tip.
