December brings with it cooler temperatures and the much-loved Christmas breeze that islanders love, making for ideal weather conditions that invite us to enjoy the outdoors and explore the island.

The Courtyards of Camana Bay
Nature blossoms at the courtyards of Camana Bay: Cassia, Gardenia, Canella and Jasmine. Named after the trees located within, each courtyard has distinctive features that make it unique from the others, but what brings them all together are the lovely water features in each. Catch up on reading, mingle with friends, unwind and relax after a day of shopping or enjoy a grab-and-go meal surrounded by the natural beauty of the flora.
Community Bike & Walking Trail
Rediscover the natural beauty of Grand Cayman via our recently opened community and bike trail, which hugs the perimeter of Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa and the coast of Seven Mile Beach. Glimpse young wildlife sheltering in the mangroves, witness the beauty of a Seven Mile sunset or just enjoy the child-like joy of riding a bike.
Cayman Islands Yacht Club
Book a private charter or tour of the North Sound or Stingray City, departing from the beautiful Cayman Islands Yacht Club. A boat-lovers gallery of fine art, the Yacht Club is home to over 150 vessels up to 120-feet in length. Pick up snacks, beverages and on-the-water essentials from Anchors or enjoy a lovely meal of fresh seafood at neighbouring Morgan’s Restaurant.
The Observation Tower
While visiting Camana Bay, wander up the 75-foot observation tower and take in phenomenal 360-degree views of Grand Cayman’s North Sound, Seven Mile Beach, West Bay and, of course, Camana Bay’s Town Centre. Take in the stunning mosaic mural on the walls – made up of over three million Venetian glass tiles! – which takes you on a journey through Cayman’s renowned underwater world.
Starfish Point and Barkers Beach
A ‘white Christmas’ in the Cayman Islands is synonymous with the abundance of smooth, white sand along our beautiful beaches. Nestled on the “tip” of Grand Cayman – a community known as Kaibo – is Starfish Point, home to clusters of red starfish. And on the most north-easterly side of West Bay is the rustic and unexpected beauty of Barkers Beach. Kitesurfers commonly flock to this beach to enjoy its sweeping breezes around this time of year.
Fountains at Camana Bay
The fountains at Camana Bay offer endless entertainment for children of all ages. Adults and older children will marvel in the beauty and merriment of the 30-foot-high sprays from the fountain on The Crescent, a favourite feature of the Town Centre, while little trotters can frolic in the gentle pulses of the interactive fountains in Jasmine Court.
North Sound Golf Club
Tap into your athletic side this Christmas and head over to the North Sound Golf Club, the only 18-hole champion golf course in the Cayman Islands. Grab a few of your friends for a round, then cool down and enjoy a drink or meal in the newly renovated clubhouse.
The Island at Camana Bay
Carefully selected palm trees, hammocks, a hand-painted life-size iguana sculpture, rocking chairs and panoramic water views make the Island at Camana Bay a perfect place for relaxing, picnicking, soaking up a bit of sunshine or viewing young wildlife that call the Camana Bay Harbour home.
Camana Bay Sports Complex
With the ability to support both indoor and outdoor recreational activities, you are guaranteed to go into ‘game mode’ at the Camana Bay Sports Complex. This Christmas, step on the court for a set of tennis, shoot some hoops in the Arts & Recreational Centre, go for a swim in the eight-lane swimming pool, practice your footwork on the state-of-the-art soccer field or break a sweat walking around the half-mile pavement that borders the facilities and adjacent Cayman International School.
