  • Bit of tourist attraction. Lots of shops and tour operators. Noticed a few have closed down since there 4 years ago. Free wi fi zone in shopping centre

  • Crowded. Get out of Port area. Take a tour or bus to public beach, not coral Beach. Take a snorke.ing tour.

  • a small but very nice port, with many activities to do within the cayman islands, in particular we snorkeled with manta rays, the experience was unforgettable, the city is very clean, organized and I loved it to go live, I hope to return soon. the waters of the sea you find different shades depending on where you go, we had very good weather in September 2018
  • This is smaller than other ports and rightfully so. There's multiple water taxis dropping off and picking up passengers. It's extremely hard to get on the wrong ship when leaving the port since there are multiple signs and they check your ship ID card multiple times. The port has a good number of shops and eateries. There's a designated spot for pre-booked excursions, but there's also folks offering tours and such at the port. If you choose to go off on your own, be prepared to show your cruise ID to get back inside the port... even when leaving the shops. Since a few of the shops have street access, there's security at the store exits to ensure you're on a cruise. So have your ID ready. Lastly, there's a great spot to get a picture of the ship behind you before getting back on the taxi.
