Grand Cayman - Camana Bay

It's always fun to discover a new place to explore. We've been diving at Grand Cayman for over 10 years now and have watched many changes over the year. This year Camana Bay caught our eye and when we drove to Georgetown from the East End to attend the First Baptist Church of Cayman, we decided to visit Camana Bay and check it out.

Visiting on a Sunday was a joy for Bob. The stores were all closed so there were no shopping opportunities.  We managed to find a few restaurants open though and chose the Black Trumpet Delicatessen when we walked past a couple eating and asked if they recommended it. The choices on the menu were all tempting and luckily we only ordered one sandwich and a salad to split. The sandwich was more than enough for us.

After satisfying our hunger pains, we strolled around the area. It was very pleasant on the eye and offered respite from the sun with all the trees and overhead decorative awnings. There were several courts each named for a particular flower. Each court had some type of fountain and any one of the areas would have been a great place to just sit and relax. One of the fountains is interactive--meaning the kids can run through the sprays of water that pop up all over the place.

The shops we passed looked a bit upscale but you would expect that in this kind of area away from the hustle of Seven Mile Beach (although it is near there) and the frantic shopping for souvenirs in downtown Georgetown as the cruise ships come in.

Camana Bay is also developed with a residential area, a hotel, and offices. It is a community in every sense of the word and very well planned. I look forward to returning--maybe when the stores are open?
