Cayman is a duty-free Caribbean destination and whether you are looking for dazzling jewelry, beautiful local arts and crafts or designer clothes, you will be pleased with the quality and selection that the Island's stores have to offer.
Below are some of Cayman’s higher end retail locations and specialty items to be found within:
Although George Town is the shopping hub of Grand Cayman for most tourists arriving by ship, many of our high end boutiques are to be found along the Seven Mile Beach corridor and in Camana Bay which would now be widely considered the residents’ shopping area of choice for luxury purchasing amidst a beautifully landscaped environment filled with restful water features, surrounded by hassle free parking.
Due to the absence of duty or sales taxes in the Cayman Islands, certain luxury goods such as jewelry, watches, gemstones, sunglasses, leather goods, crystal, antique coins, perfume and cameras can be purchased at very reasonable prices. Internationally recognized brand names such as Pandora, John Hardy, David Yurman, Philip Stein, Swarovski, Cartier and Chanel are available in most of the duty free malls of Cayman and high end boutique jewelers like ‘Balaclava’ in Governor’s square and ‘The Mansion’, Camana Bay are on hand to assist the most discerning of customers with a variety of unique pieces.
All of one’s Beauty product needs can be purchased at ‘Kirk Freeport’, ‘le Visage’ in Camana Bay and the ‘Mac’ makeup store in downtown Georgetown.
