Sailing Little Cayman Island and what to expect ?.
Sailing Little Cayman Island from Grand Cayman Island. Well it might be no surprise that Grand Cayman is the most famous islands between the three islands. Simply put, Grand Cayman has a lot more to offer than the Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. But let me tell you that these two other islands might just have everything you are looking for !. This is all about Little Cayman.
Actually The Little Cayman is the smallest island of the Cayman Islands. But nevertheless, The Little Cayman has a lot to offer !. And probably the most active attraction is scuba diving.
But if you are into watching birds, then you can enjoy your day at The Booby Pond Nature Preserve. This is because this preserve is home of the Caribbean’s largest colony of Red Footed Boobies that are nestling there. But you can also watch the incredible colony of Frigate Birds.
The Little Cayman island has a lot of nature. So if you are into hiking and enjoying the nature life. Well this Caribbean island offers you that as well. Little Cayman Island has a large untouched area that is well protect. You can book a tour at the National Trust For The Cayman Islands. I will describe this later in this post.
And if you are into relaxing and luxury. Well Little Cayman has a few resorts that you can take use of. And with that you can enjoy the nightlife as well.
A little history of Little Cayman Island.
Somewhere around the year 1500, this island was mostly visited by pirates. And like with other islands, Christopher Columbus discovered this island in the year 1503. Actually this was his final voyage of four islands. When it comes to measures ?. Little Cayman Island is just 16.09km long. That would be 10 miles. The width of the island is just 1.6km (1mile). This island has no mountains, so the highest sea level is 12metres (around 40feet). Today most of the population lives around the road called Buy Banks Rd. And when it comes to population, well that would be between 150 and 200.
In present time Little Cayman Island is mostly visited by Scuba divers, photographers, wildlife lovers and off course people who want to escape the crowd.
How to get to Little Cayman Island ?.
Well in particularly there a two ways to get to The Little Cayman Island. The first one is when you go for a Private Yacht Charter at Grand Cayman. From the Grand Cayman it’s about 80 miles or 128 km sailing distance to Little Cayman. From Grand Cayman to Cayman Brac would be 90 miles (144.8km).
The second one is flying to Little Cayman. There is a little air strip called ‘ The Edward Bodden Airfield‘ or just known as Little Cayman Airport. Good thing to know that this airstrip is just 590ft long (180metres). As to my knowledge there’s no direct flight from Miami FL to Little Cayman. So the best way to fly to Little Cayman, is to book a flight from Miami or another city to Grand Cayman First. From there you can book a domestic flight to Little Cayman.
The address of The Edward Bodden Airfield is Guy Banks Rd, Blossom Village, Cayman Islands. And you can give them a call at number +1 345-948-0021. Also the Little Cayman Airport Code is LYB. I don’t think they have an official website. If you could find one, please leave it in the comments please.
