Little Cayman Island

Little Cayman is the smallest of the three Cayman Islands, both in area and population.

 

Little Cayman is famous for its scuba diving. The most famous dive sites, Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson's Bight, are both located on the northwest end of the island. Bloody Bay Wall is consistently ranked as one of the world's top wall dives with the ocean floor dropping off from a depth of 15 feet to 5000 feet almost vertically.

 

Most of the island is at sea level. The highest elevation is about 40 feet.

 

Stingray City, located a short boat ride from the northern end of Grand Cayman, is a series of shallow sand bars where sting rays are found in abundance and visitors can feed, pet, and interact with the animals.

 

Other tourist attractions include the black limestone spires of Hell, a turtle farm, and the Mastic Trail, a hiking trail through the dry forests in the centre of the island.

 

In the centre of the island is the Mastic Trail, a hiking trail through old growth dry forests that used to cover the entire island. Plants and animals native to Grand Cayman, such as the Mastic Tree, green parrot, and agouti, can be seen.
