Sunsets on Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
Sunset SailOne of the best days I had during my trip to the Cayman Islands is the day that I spent on a catamaran, sailing and swimming around Grand Cayman. The warm waters of the Caribbean felt sublime as I dove off the side of the boat, seeking a brief respite from the heat. We snorkeled over a few reefs and were able to watch many different types of marine life. We also went to Stingray City, where the captain demonstrated how to properly feed a stingray squid, and reminding us to avoid the barbs right above their tails. I even gave one a kiss since it is supposed to bring good luck! We spent the rest of the afternoon going through mangroves and visiting Rum Point. I had such a wonderful time, it was a shock when I looked at my watch and realized that we would be heading back to shore soon. As we pulled into the dock, I decided to run to the beach and take a picture of the golden sunset. As I stood on the beach, I noticed another catamaran sailing towards the docks. It was such a picturesque scene, it perfectly summed up how I felt about the afternoon.

Be Wowed by the Sunset on the Cayman Islands
Take in the marvelous colors of the sunset from the best west-facing beaches in the Cayman Islands. Smith Cove in Grand Cayman is a protected but popular beach to catch the sunset due to its impeccable location and pristine condition. This spot is often the dream destination for beach weddings as well, as the calm water picks up the hues of the sky and becomes perfect for sunset photo sessions. Stroll along Seven Mile Beach to the hidden nooks in the foliage for a more private view of the setting sun. Being that there are seven miles of open west-facing seafront, there are plenty of hideaways available to take in the views.
