Grand Cayman: Where to Stay, What to Eat, and What to do

Hello loves! If you are following along on Instagram, you would know that I just got back from an amazing vacation in Grand Cayman. This trip was in celebration of my sister’s high school graduation, and my graduation from college. We had the best time, and I wanted to recap everything for y’all incase you are interested in traveling there. I have broken everything up by where we stayed, what we did, and where we ate. And of course, I’m sharing my outfits and linking all of the pieces for y’all to shop. I hope you love this post!



We were lucky enough to have a non-stop flight via American Airlines to the island. The customs line was not too long, and it was easy to catch a taxi to take us to our resort. Below is my travel day outfit.



We stayed at the Westin on Seven Mile Beach. This resort was located on a private beach, had a great pool (with a fantastic swim up bar!), and spacious rooms. Additionally, there was a mini mart, restaurants, and a liquor store right across the street from the resort. I would definitely stay at this resort again as the staff was friendly and accommodating, and everything was not ridiculously over priced. My favorite things from the resort in terms of food and drink were the summer blossom from the lobby bar, and the French 75 and tuna salad sandwich from the poolside restaurant called Tortuga.



Besides laying out at our resort’s beach and pool, we went on a couple excursions during our stay. One of the main attractions in Grand Cayman is Stingray City. This is an area of the ocean with a sand bar where the water is only waist deep and there are tons of stingrays swimming around. We used the company Captain Marvin’s, which I highly recommend. This company was especially convenient for us because the shuttle pick up point was right across the street from our resort. We did the 3-stop stingray + snorkeling tour which included one stop where we got out and pet + fed the stingrays, and two different stops for snorkeling. This was only $45 which was a great deal for a 3 hour excursion. We also purchased the optional photo package which included all of our photos with the stingrays.


For our second excursion, we went on a sunset cruise. We used Red Sail Sports and we boarded the boat at our hotel’s beach (super convenient!). This was a two hour cruise around the bay which included snacks and had a cash bar onboard. The views were amazing and this was a great way to end our day.



We honestly did not have a bad meal during our trip! Below are my top recommendations.

  • Casanova - Italian food with fantastic pasta and an ocean view

  • Sunshine Grill - get the fish tacos … they’re “world famous”

  • Casa 43 - delicious Mexican food (and I have high standards for Mexican food!)

  • Deckers - little bit of everything … I got the lobster spring rolls and shrimp risotto


I hope you found this post helpful! Get ready for some content about my move to NYC over the next couple of weeks.
