The Caymans are a cruising mainstay, but you need to choose your timing carefully to avoid a mass convergence of the huge ships which can see highlights like Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach and the turtle farm packed to the gills. Rum Point and Smith Cove I find is both nicer and quieter. A visit to Stingray City off Grand Cayman is definitely a highlight, and for some divers and snorkellers, the main reason for coming to the Caymans. In the water, you’re in the thick of it, these creatures fly all around you, and if you can dive above you, but even seen from above in the air, a gathering of this many stingrays is like watching an underwater flock of pterodactyls or something equally bordering on the impossible. The other highlight of Grand Cayman is the Botanical Gardens on the hill, it’s a beautiful place for a stroll and the view of the island is wonderful.

Grand Cayman is a breathtakingly beautiful place to visit with beautiful white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and a lot of restaurants, bars, and stores for shopping. Sting Ray City is a must see, and "Hell" is another place to go so that you can tell your friends that you've been to hell and back. A local joke. I found that the best time to visit is around April, May or June when it's not as crowded, and it's right before the hurricane season.
