Little Cayman

Little Cayman is a tiny, eco-friendly island, just ten miles long and about a mile wide, with crystal clear azure waters lapping pristine white sandy beaches it has some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world and represents a veritable Caribbean paradise. The handful of resorts on the island do their part to ensure they preserve the pristine eco-system of the island.

An important site for nesting birds, Little Cayman has the largest known breeding colony of the Red Footed Booby in the Caribbean as well as a breeding colony of magnificent Frigate birds. The island’s 203 acre Booby Pond Nature Reserve, administered by the National Trust, is the first RAMSAR (the intergovernmental treaty on wetlands) site in the Cayman Islands. Little Cayman is also home to the rare Little Cayman Rock Iguana (Cyclura nubila caymanensis) which is found nowhere else in the world save here and in Cayman Brac.

Real estate in Little Cayman is limited but still relatively abundant compared with the size and population of the island. There is a great opportunity in Little Cayman to buy land which can be a good low maintenance investment choice. Little Cayman also has condominiums and residential homes for sale which make an exceptional lifestyle choice in a place that is truly unique, a beautiful unspoilt Caribbean paradise.
