Forgot It? Where to Get Those Missing Travel Items

What can be more exciting than arriving in Grand Cayman and being welcomed to your Plantana home away from home?

However, there is nothing worse than arriving to your final destination and realizing you’ve forgotten some essential items that you cannot live without, even when you’re in paradise. Whether you’re missing a spectacular sunset because you forgot your glasses or you are stuck inside battling an illness while the rest of the family are out enjoying games around the pool, you don’t want to regret not having one final check of your luggage before you zip up your bags.  

Lucky for you, we’ve pulled together a list of places in Cayman where you can pick up all the essentials you left at home.

Head to Camana Bay and combine some shopping with lunch, gelato, or a coffee from the newly opened Starbucks. With a huge variety of shops, Camana Bay has your vaction covered.

Phone chargers and gadgets

Cayman Mac Store is the one stop shop for all your Apple needs. Pick up a phone charger or even a waterproof case for your phone so you can capture every moment of your Stingray City adventure. They also have other items such as headphones, speakers, go pro chargers and much more.


The one thing you CANNOT go without in Cayman is a swimsuit! Check out Sand Angels for all your swimming essentials, from bikinis, beach throws, sandals and hats. They stock a range of brands and different styles of swimwear so you’ll be sure to find something for everyone. 

Glasses and contacts

Don’t miss a single moment of your vacation because you’ve forgotten your sunglasses.  Stop by Vision Wear Cayman or De Sunglass Man to see what suits you best.

A great book

As you know, no vacation is complete without a book to enjoy on the beach. Books & Books have a great selection to suit all ages.

Rather spend more time at the beach then shop around? Only 500 meters up the road you will find Essentials Plus and Mermaids, both located at the Westin. These island themed shops stock swimwear, island casuals, t-shirts, reef safe sunscreen, lip balm, headphones and souvenirs. If you forgot your medication, vitamins, sunscreen or you simply need to top up on some after sun gel stop by the Pharmacy at Foster’s Supermarket located at the Strand, a 20 minute walk from Plantana.
