Grand Cayman

The largest of the three islands, Grand Cayman is 76 square miles in size; 22 miles long and on average 4 miles wide, while the highest point on the island is just 60 feet above sea level.

The Islands’ capital, George Town, is located on Grand Cayman and this is the central point for the jurisdiction’s world class and highly respected financial services industry.  The island is also a huge draw for tourists from cruise ships which dock in George Town, as well as those looking to enjoy the island for a longer stay.

Diving locations and facilities are internationally renowned on Grand Cayman, while the island also successfully caters to those looking for first class cuisine, lively nightlife as well as safe family beach fun.    

The majority of the Cayman Islands real estate market is in Grand Cayman. Property on Grand Cayman is plentiful and varied, from magnificent and luxurious ocean front residences and condos, to well-sized family homes in quiet neighbourhoods, to affordable and convenient apartments. Seven Mile Beach is one of the finest stretches of sand in the Caribbean and although it has seen development & in some cases redevelopment since the early ‘70’s it still remains a tranquil & peaceful beachfront paradise compared to almost anywhere else in the Caribbean. Seven Mile Beach offers some of the best value beach front real estate in the Caribbean, with entry level condominiums from around US$300k right up to the super luxury apartments found in the likes of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, Water’s Edge or the newly built Water Colour’s that will run into eight figure sums.
