Cayman Kai and Rum Point

If you can imagine all the elements of your dream Caribbean paradise all rolled up in one location, this is it. Palm trees and casuarina trees dot the landscape, stretching lazily into the shimmering turquoise water. Hammocks swing invitingly, the shallow water twinkles blue, tempting you in for a cooling dip and homes here almost always lead their owners directly to the gently lapping ocean just yards away. Paradise found.

The small peninsular of land at the northern part of Grand Cayman known as Cayman Kai overlooks the magnificent and pristine aquatic wonderland of the North Sound just teeming with marine life and is a millionaire’s playground indeed. It is reached via a forty five minute drive east out of George Town, then bisecting the island northwards before turning west along the district of North Side to the furthest most westerly point.


 

Two popular beaches set themselves out in particular for special mention in this location – the Cayman Kai beach and Yacht Club (home to the condominium complexes of The Pools and Kaibo Condos) and Rum Point Club home to The Retreat condominiums. Both have a typically Caribbean relaxed vibe and cater incredibly well for visitors, with chilled out bars, plentiful hammocks, sun loungers and deckchairs, shops selling souvenir and beach paraphernalia, and so on. The water here is particularly shallow and therefore perfect for little ones enjoying a splash around in the sea. Snorkelers love to explore this part of the ocean as well because of its calm waters and interesting marine life. Locals love the location on holidays and weekends, mooring their boats in the shallow waters before wading ashore for a little sustenance, while visitors have the benefit of enjoying the location during the quieter weekdays as well.

There are a handful of small resorts around the area of Cayman Kai, each providing visitors with apartment or cottage-style accommodation right on the beach.

Real estate in this location, as you would imagine, is the ultimate in island living, with the powder-white sands and ocean beyond just outside your back door. Stunning homes and apartments and magnificent residences abound, often holiday homes for their lucky owners and frequently rented out to other lucky visitors when owners are not in residence. Land lots are also available for those who want to create their dream island home for themselves.
