About Grand Cayman
Seven Mile Beach, Diving, Snorkeling & More
At approximately 76 square miles and home to 70,000 residents, Grand Cayman is the largest of the Cayman Islands.
The Cayman Islands aren’t islands at all, they’re part of a mountain called the Cayman Ridge, which rises more than 24,000 feet.
Christopher Columbus called the Cayman Islands “Las Tortugas” because of the high density of sea turtles swimming in its nearby waters. Today the destination widely recognised as the birthplace of recreational diving in the Caribbean and had over 365 dive sites – one for every day of the year!
Villas of the Galleon is located on the country’s most famous natural attractions – Seven Mile Beach. The stunning crescent of white sand is actually less than seven miles – about five and a half miles long. All beaches in the Cayman Islands are public, making it possible to walk the full length of the shore regardless of where you’re staying. The beach is also famous for its awe-inspiring sunsets, as yellows clash with the blues and day turns to night.
