If you’re looking for a uniquely “Cayman” experience, look no further than the events put on during our annual Pirates Week! Every year, an array of events are held throughout the month of November marking the largest annual event on the island.
This has been happening in the Cayman Islands for over 40 years and the essence of the events, while expanded and continually growing, has mostly remained the same. If you’re familiar at all with Pirates Week, you most likely know about the Pirates Landing event! Thousands of people gather in the heart of George Town near the waterfront to witness the pirates “taking over” Grand Cayman as they wash ashore on their pirate ship. They remain in character throughout the day, so be careful not to get into a pirate fight!
This year, there will be so many incredible events on but here are some highlights to get you excited:
- November 12th: Pirates Landing
- November 17th: Steelpan Competition
- November 18th: Pirates Week Block Party
- November 19th: Cardboard Boat Regatta, Float Parade, and Food Festival
Pirates Week is always characterized by family friendly fun, great local food, incredible music and entertainment, fireworks, and of course the costumes! During Pirates Week, don’t be surprised to see people in every corner of the island dressed in their pirates best!
Plantana has very limited availability left for the entire month of November, so be sure to reach out as soon as possible if you’re interested in having a few days in paradise this Fall! We will be reopening to rentals on November 1st, ready to welcome all our pirate friends to Seven Mile Beach.
