Grand Cayman is considered the ultimate vacation destination and among the many reasons, Seven Mile Beach is certainly one of them. Seven Mile Beach has an aura of tranquillity; it not only offers white sand beaches for leisurely walks and sunbathing, its crystal clear waters invite you to soak all your cares away. Yet, this world-renown stretch of coral sand is also ideal for exciting land and water activities and home to several world-class restaurants.
Morning jogs along Seven Mile Beach followed by a refreshing dip will no doubt leave you peaceful and happy, and sunset strolls are an absolute must! There is also one natural phenomenon you do not want to miss – the bright green flash that follows a sunset! With the right conditions, you will see a green ray shooting up from the upper rim of the sun’s disk, but don’t blink – it lasts only a second! There are also a host of other great activities to indulge in while watching a magical sunset:
What better way to see the sunset than on a luxury catamaran sailboat? Red Sail Sports offers sunset sails most days of the week, leaving from The Westin or the Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa around 6pm (depending on the time of year). Enjoy light refreshments, Caribbean inspired cocktails and the sea breeze in your hair as you watch the sun dip behind the horizon.
Sunset beach BBQ
Enjoy watching the sunset with the sand between your toes while indulging in delicious food and drinks at the Westin Beach BBQ, taking place every Friday night from 6pm. American style meats and local seafood will entice foodies along with a variety of sides and salads. Finish your meal with an amazing display of desserts from key lime pie, tiramisu and chocolate fudge. The Westin Beach BBQ is only CI$39 per person and should be booked in advance.
Sunset paddle boarding
Watching the sunset while floating on a paddle board is like sitting front row at the opera, with the sun playing the leading role and the colors of the sky orchestrating the sun as it sets. Salt Watersports Cayman offers 1 hour hire on any day of the week, not to mention it is only a five-minute walk from your Plantana beach home. Glide on the water in whichever position you feel confident as you watch the curtain fall on the day.
Enjoy the cool sea breeze and unimaginable views as you parasail at sunset! Parasailing Professionals make booking a lesson easy, they’ll even pick you up directly from the Plantana beachfront. As you fly high you will not only enjoy sunset views, but also enjoy sights of the entire island. This is definitely one experience you will want to mark off the bucket list this vacation.
If these activities don’t fit into your vacation schedule, you can enjoy the sunset every night of the week from the comfort of your private beach front at Plantana.
