When to fly to Cayman Islands
The most popular time for cheap flights to the Cayman Islands is between December and April.
Between May and November the rainy season prevails and can sometimes feature hurricanes so it is advisable to check the forecast before setting off. Some travellers consider the wet season to be the ideal time for finding cheap flights to the Cayman Islands. There are many possible reasons for this but chief among them are the cheaper hotel and resort rates, the uncrowded beaches and the fact that when the rain does arrive, it does so for relatively short periods.
Cayman Islands insider information
- The islands feature some of the most spectacular diving areas the world over. Among these is the Bloody Bay Marine Park, which is located north of Little Cayman and remains a choice destination for divers.
- Seven Mile Beach is the biggest one on Grand Cayman and features seemingly endless kilometres of shimmering white sand. Its downside is its popularity among the cruise-ship arrivals that sometimes makes for a crowded setting. As a result Rum Point may be a better option and is also good for children with changing areas, hammocks and a lively beach bar among the amenities.
- Amateur sportsmen have much to occupy themselves with as the area features all of backpacking, hiking, kayaking, golfing and bird watching in plentiful supply throughout all three of the islands.
- Grand Cayman is also known as Hell, something that is considerably more attractive than the name suggests. It is an area of often-spectacular black lava formations that also makes it an ideal setting for vacation pictures that are bound to stand out for years to come.
- Beautiful beaches, palm trees gently swaying in the breeze and seemingly constant sunshine make the Cayman Islands a perfect setting for both weddings and honeymoons. If a beach wedding is not to your taste, chapel and church services are also on offer but remember to bring the necessary legal paperwork with you to make sure that your dream day goes off without a hitch – ahem.
