Most visitors to Grand Cayman make their base on the western end of the island, and with good reason. That’s where you’ll find the famous Seven Mile Beach
, one of the world’s most beautiful crescents of sand lined with luxury resorts, condos and top restaurants. On this itinerary, however, you’ll head to the East End, where you’ll find an off-the-beaten-path air of quiet tranquility.
Your base for your stay will be the Wyndham Reef Resort Grand Cayman
, where every room comes with an ocean view and the sounds of the Caribbean Sea are just meters away from your bed. The resort also has a long list of activities they can arrange with jet skis, kayaks, Hobie cats, and other water sports equipment available.
The East End of Grand Cayman is also known as a kitesurfing (or kiteboarding) destination, and when the wind blows the surfers flock here. After you have settled into your room, you’ll join them with the help of a lesson from White Sand Water Sports
, where the classroom consists of a sandbar that creates a sheltered area of waist-deep water. Before you know it, you’ll be up on your board and bumping over the waves, powered by your sail.
Dine tonight at the Tides
at the Wyndham—you’ve had a long day of travel and learning a new sport, and tomorrow is equally busy.
