Grand Cayman’s sister islands continue to get recognition in the international press. The most recent? Little Cayman.

In an article in USA Today entitled “Shh! These are the best secret beaches in the Caribbean,” writer Melanie Reffes advises that if you think all beaches were created equal, then think again.

In her list of top secret beaches, including Mullet Bay in Sint Maarten, Little Bay Beach in Anguilla and Doctor’s Cove Beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Little Cayman’s Point of Sand made the cut.

Said the writer, “The easternmost point of Little Cayman is where you'll find Point of Sand, the prettiest sandy perch this side of a postcard.”

“The water is ankle-deep for the first 15 feet and gradually drops off making the beach ideal for snorkeling, swimming and staying cool on under the midday sun. Accessible by car or scooter, the water is home to the queen conch and at least a dozen varieties of reef fish.”

The world is finally starting to take notice of what Caymanians have known all along.
