The Cayman Islands for couples
The Cayman Islands is a beautiful Caribbean paradise, blessed with countless white sandy beaches, secluded coves, high-end resorts and swathes of verdant forest. There are numerous places where you can escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life and really enjoy spending time away with your loved one.
Beyond the beaches and the over-commercialisation of some "Americanised" places in Grand Cayman, these islands boasts unique serenity and raw natural beauty that is ideal for lovers, especially if you leave the main island head to the two smaller islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Unlike other islands in the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands may lack the nightlife action and dramatic scenery of some other destinations, but it more than compensates with the charm of its warm locals and splendour of its natural riches.
Couples will love the unspoilt beauty of the Cayman Islands' coastline, with plenty of quiet bays and hidden coves just waiting to be discovered. There is nowhere better to really unwind and relax during a break than at one of the archipelago's picturesque beaches.
There are also plenty of ways to get active during a holiday in the Cayman Islands, with sedate, as well as adventurous, activities on offer. Snorkelling, hiking, kitesurfing and horseback riding are just a few of the options while fantastic bird-watching, trekking or diving opportunities are never too far away.
Added to all of this are the excellent hotels in the Cayman Islands (some of the best in the Caribbean in fact, with some serious quality standards)_. Wherever you stay you'll have outstanding facilities on hand, as well as accommodating staff who will help you in any way possible to make your trip a happy and memorable one.
Romance and relaxation
The best way to relax in the Cayman Islands is to head to one of its stunning beaches and there are certainly plenty to choose from. On Grand Cayman the most famous stretch of sand is Seven Mile Beach - a long bay that's backed by hotels. There is always plenty of space here, even during the busiest season, and it's a truly beautiful place to relax in.
For somewhere a little quieter, head to East End Beach on Grand Cayman. This is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and a good spot to mingle with the locals. It's also renowned for its wonderful sunrises, so if you can drag yourselves out of bed early enough, it's worth making the trip first thing in the morning.
Cayman Brac also has its fair share of outstanding beaches and, as this island is much less developed than Grand Cayman, it's perfect for couples hoping to enjoy seclusion and alone time on their holiday. Hire mopeds or bicycles to explore the isle and seek out the hidden coves along its coastline.
For a real barefoot luxury experience, though, stay on Little Cayman. This is the smallest of the islands in the group and also the most exclusive. There are a few high-end resorts here and very little else, so it really is like having a desert island paradise all to yourselves. Make sure you hire kayaks and spend a day on the uninhabited Owen Island during your trip - you'll feel a million miles from all the worries of everyday life.
As well as its wonderful natural attractions that are bound to make you relax as soon as you arrive, the Cayman Islands also boast some wonderful spas where you can have pampering beauty treatments and massages.
Many of these can be found at the top hotels, but most will offer day spa experiences, so even if there's no spa where you're staying, you don't have to miss out on a day of luxury. Take some time for you at the start of your break to ensure all your troubles melt away and to allow you to really enjoy all that the Cayman Islands has to offer.
Activities for couples to try
Not every couple wants to spend their entire holiday lounging on a beautiful beach, which is why the Cayman Islands is such a good choice as it really does cater for everyone. There are numerous fun activities to try as a couple during your holiday here, with plenty of sedate options alongside more adventurous pursuits.
One of the Cayman Islands' biggest attractions is its underwater world, with much of this being protected. There are amazing coral reefs, impressive shipwrecks and an impressive array of fish waiting to be discovered. Learning to dive together is a fantastic way to spend your break - and you'll have some unforgettable memories of your first underwater explorations to take home with you.
Snorkelling is an alternative if you're not ready to take the deep plunge, while you can also have a go at the likes of kitesurfing, jetskiing, parasailing and paddleboarding.
Not all of the activities in the Cayman Islands are water-based, however, as there are plenty of hiking trails that crisscross the isles and allow you to discover the beautiful areas of rainforest and woodland that are found inland. Another romantic option is a horseback ride along the beach - go at dawn or dusk for the most beautiful backdrop.
Honeymoons and weddings in the Cayman Islands
The Cayman Islands is a popular honeymoon destination and it's even possible to get married on its white sand beaches if you've got your heart set on a Caribbean wedding. Many of the top resorts in the Cayman Islands offer packages for honeymooning couples and some will be able to help you organise a wedding, if this is what you're looking for.
There are few places better for a romantic honeymoon, with the Cayman Islands' combination of outstanding natural beauty, sumptuous resorts, excellent restaurants and fun activities ensuring that every couple can tailor their first holiday as man and wife to be exactly as they want it.
