Five Paw-fect Things To Do With Your Dog In The Cayman Islands

In the Cayman Islands, there are many opportunities to have fun with man's best friend.

In the Cayman Islands, there are many opportunities to have fun with man's best friend.

The Cayman Islands is a dog-lovers paradise. There are many services and resources available for pets and although there are no enclosed dog parks, there are many opportunities to leave the confines of home with your best friend.  Here are just a few.

Take a staycation

There are a variety of pet-friendly hotels on the island. At the Kimpton Seafire, dogs are given a bowl and a dog bed— heck, dogs are literally greeted by name upon arrival! Other hotels that are pet-friendly include Sunshine Suites, the Grand Marriott Beach Resort, the Ritz Carlton, Holiday Inn Resort and Grand Caymanian Resort.

Head over to Camana Bay

Camana Bay with its waterfront setting, water features, grassy areas and open spaces is the perfect place to take your pet for an on-leash adventure. Many of the outdoor restaurants are pet-friendly and will provide your dog with a bowl of water and even a treat while you eat. A favourite spot is the outdoor seating at The Waterfront Urban Diner because of its beautiful waterfront setting and shaded seating under the trees. Must Love Dogs has everything you need to pamper your furry friend and offers a full menu of in-house spa services such as walk-in “pawdicures”.

Take Fido for lunch

Sunshine grill is an island favourite for pets, where water bowls and snacks such as bacon snow cones are provided! Dog-friendly beach bars like Rackams, Macabuca and Kaibo are excellent ways of getting your dog on the beach while you enjoy lunch and a drink. Kaibo has specially made doggy cookies that your pet can enjoy.

Take a walk

Any public beach on-island is the perfect hangout spot for you and your furry friend. You can also enjoy a walk on the grassy area beside Britannia, but this can be busy at certain times of the day. The South Sound boardwalk is another terrific option.

Check out event listings for One Dog At A Time and The Humane Society

Local charities frequently have dog-friendly fund-raisers and events. One Dog At A Time, a not for profit foster-based dog rescue group, has had Beach Mutt Struts, Puppy Pawties and Dog shows.

Don’t have a dog? Go enjoy some canine fun at The Humane Society. They are always in search of volunteers!
