My fiance’ and I are going to the Cayman Islands for our honeymoon in July. I have been there on a cruise (for one day) and visited Sting Ray City. Do you have any recommendations for places we should visit or dine?

It has been years since I have been there and so much has changed my parents said. I remember the Turtle Farm, Hell. The Lonestar to eat. I know that downtown is huge now and Rum Pointe has things they didn’t have before. Cathy Church is an excellent underwater photographer. The place next to Plantation used to have free food and steel drums on a certain night. We use to go out with a great captain on a small boat, but I forgot his name. ALl I know my parents weren’t happy how the island is now. We started going back in 88 when only one crusie ship came in a week. I will ask my parents if they have anything for you.

We ate at Rum Pointe somewhere that was good. My aunt and uncle lived there for a few years- I will ask them if they know of any. The Naked Fish also has pretty good food and it’s not too far away from the main downtown area.

A little off topic but – what did you think of Sting Ray city? I have heard about it before!

teachermegs – Thanks for all of the great advice. I went about 10 years ago, so I’m sure that the island has changed a lot. Luckily, we’ll be on the east end of the island, which is less busy.
g8girl – Thanks for your recommendations too!
EquiBee – I absolutely loved Sting Ray City! The water is crystal clear and the sting rays are amazingly gentle and feel so soft!

We just went there last August for our honeymoon. Definitely do Sting Ray City and snorkeling on the reef. Rum Point is a lot of fun. And the food at Luca at the Carribean Club (a couple of doors down from the Ritz) is great as is the wine list. Deckers is a great semi-locals place (a lot of the ex pat workers hang out there after their shifts). Good food, great waitstaff/bartenders, and live music – 1/2 of it is outdoors under a patio cover, which is really cool when it pours rain and you stay dry and can watch the downpour. 🙂

I agree with Rum Point and Stingray City. I went snorkeling at Cemetary Beach and saw a lot of stuff, it was about 6 months after Ivan so there was almost a fake reef from debris. It is a small beach with no ammenities, but pack a picnic lunch and you’ll probably share the place with 4 or 5 others. For restaurants, maybe check out the Calypso Grill, Pappagallo, Blue, the Lighthouse. Chicken, Chicken was a cheaper lunch option. We stayed at Turtle Nest Inn in Bodden Town and had our own apartment, so we also got to know the local grocery store and bought stuff for a picnic lunch each day to save some money. Cayman can get expensive!
