Cayman Islands invite you to relax in a private, pristine retreat where you can throw all the cautions into the wind and enjoy a hassle-free stay. Wrapped in a brilliant turquoise sea, the uncrowded and powder-soft white sand beaches of this island await your footprints. The secluded and peaceful position and basic geology of Cayman Islands has contributed much to its appeal. It is quietly nestled in the western Caribbean Sea. The islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman come together to form the Cayman Islands, the first one being the largest of them all. Flat terrains and large coral heads are the most common feature of the topography of this island nation. Visitor can find a sole exception with the height of The Bluff on Cayman Brac that rises to 140 feet above sea level along the coastline.
Cayman Islands were a dependency of Jamaica before it became a British occupancy with the signing of the Treaty of Madrid in 1670. Gradually it rose to gain the status of an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. Since the approval of the new constitution in 1972, Cayman Islands enjoy greater degree of autonomy. It has a full-time membership with the Central Development Bank, International Olympic Committee, an associate membership with CARICOM and UNESCO and a sub-bureau of Interpol.
