Little Cayman is the smallest of the three islands in the Caribbean Sea, that make up the British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands. It's 16 kilometers long (10 miles long), and about 2 kilometers (1 mile) wide, and is home to less than 200 people! From its beautiful lagoon, amazing dive sights, pink & white sand beaches, stunning marine life, and countless caves, exploring this island is a must!!!

I traveled to Little Cayman mid-May, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect! Blue skies, calm waters, hot & humid with a nice breeze, and not many people in sight! I absolutely fell in love with this quaint little piece of paradise!
Little Cayman Beach Resort The natural beauty around Little Cayman Beach Resort was absolutely undeniable! Not only did I feel like I had the entire place to myself, but the vibe was so laid back!! You can kick back in a hammock, relax in the pool, go snorkeling around the lagoon, grab a bite to eat while admiring the beautiful view of the pool & ocean, go fishing offshore, or dive the stunning reef! No matter what you decide to do, the views are quite overwhelming-in a great way, of course, that will make it so you never want to leave!
Southern Cross Club The first thing I said to myself upon arriving at Southern Cross Club was, "Wow". The colors were absolutely unreal, the serenity was unlike I have ever experienced in the Caribbean, and the beauty was just surreal. I only saw one person laying back in a hammock the entire time I was here! Not only are the views around the resort immaculate, the view of Owen Island is just perfect! Southern Cross has kayak rentals, so those who want to explore Owen Island, can get to it by kayak! The trade winds were quite strong while I was there, so I didn't get a chance to explore Owen Island-Maybe next time! I absolutely recommend this magical place to anyone who wants the ultimate relaxing experience, with some of the most beautiful views on the island!
Exploring Little Cayman I had the best time exploring this little piece of paradise! I rented a scooter with Scooten Scooters, and made my way all around this beautiful island! Though it is very small, the views were never disappointing! You can count on being the only person at each destination, because there are not many people on the island! My favorite spots around the island were Point of Sand, Sunset Cove, and the Salt Rock Dock! The character, color of the water, and the lack of people made for such an amazing adventure. This island truly is heavenly!
