Little Cayman is located 81 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, with Cayman Brac only 4 miles away. We are 480 miles southwest of Miami, and 90 miles south of Havana, Cuba.
Discovered in 1503 by Christopher Columbus, this island paradise is virtually unchanged since the days when pirates and buccaneers sailed the rich emerald waters that surround our island shores. While tales of pirates abound, it is likely that Little Cayman saw few visitors until recent times. As a result, today we glory in a magnificent underwater world.
Little Cayman is an island of incredible beauty and unspoiled nature with 21 miles of spectacular coastline, white beaches and clear turquoise waters. It is truly a jewel in the Caribbean.
The incredible coral reefs that hug the island are a diver’s dream and fisherman’s fantasy. As one might expect from one of the top dive locations in the world, breathtaking underwater wonderlands await you.
Little Cayman is host to a variety of beautiful exotic tropical plants. The native Rock Iguana has the “Right of Way” on our roads and bird watchers will be delighted by the Booby Pond Nature Reserve which is home to the Red Footed Boobies, Frigate birds, West Indian Whistling Ducks and many more species.
Little Cayman also boasts its own Museum with a more recent addition being our Maritime Museum. Both offer glimpses of our little Island’s history and way of life.
