Rum Point: typically Caribbean

The narrow strip of land called Rum Point lies along the northern coast of Grand Cayman. In typically Caribbean form, it's laid back and worry-free, with not much more than a few swaying palms and Casuarinas, strips of white sand flanked by shallow turquoise waters and the odd beach bar knocking out cold beer and reggae from crackly radios. What could be better than tiptoeing down from your waterfront Rum Point vacation rental to a hammock and looking out to sea without the distractions of your cellphone and the responsibilities of home? Nothing.

Get ready for family fun days at Rum Point

After you've spent a few days lying on the beach, if you feel the need to get the old blood flowing again there's a ton of watery activities just a short walk from your Rum Point vacation rental. If you're itching to learn how to sail, little Hobie Cats are a great introduction. Alternatively, you can launch paddleboards or sea kayaks to cruise along the coast at your own pace, keeping your beady eyes peeled for marine life below. It doesn't matter if you're coming alone or bringing the whole family and little ones, there are enough beach toys to keep everyone happy.

There's more than sand and sea in Rum Point

It's true that most people are drawn to Grand Cayman for the picture-postcard beaches. However, there are plenty of things to do near your Rum Point vacation rental that don't revolve around the sand and ocean. If you've rented a car, you can drive south to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, which teems with tropical flora. For something quirky, you could visit the desolate lunar-like landscape of limestone rocks, which locals simply call Hell, or dive into the water at Starfish Point to see an extraordinary number of these beautiful marine creatures.

Rum Point is open year-round

Like much of the Caribbean, Rum Point's busiest season is in winter when folks leave the cold snow behind and jet off to warmer climes. If you nab a Rum Point vacation rental between December and February, you can bask on the sun-soaked shores on Grand Cayman, though you'll need to get in there quick if you want to visit over Christmas and New Year. A little later in spring, when the cold thaws out back home, traveler numbers drop, as do the rental prices. The island's position means it rarely gets hit by hurricanes, so you can visit any time of year.

Birds, butterflies and sea creatures at Rum Point

If you're looking for land-dwelling critters, you won't find much on Grand Cayman, though you should keep an eye out for the critically endangered blue iguana, the dozens of colorful butterflies and 200 species of migratory and resident birds, including the Cayman parrot and red-footed boobies. The real wildlife magic lies in the clear waters surrounding the island. Just an hour of diving or snorkeling and you'll likely encounter everything from sea turtles to Cuban dogfish, not to mention several species of magnificent stingrays and a variety of harmless sharks. Just remember to pack your underwater camera.
