Love Ice-cream? Some Unique Ways To Lick It Up In The Cayman Islands.

In the Cayman Islands it's always ice cream season. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a refreshing scoop of vanilla in a warm waffle cone on a broiling hot day? Cayman's ice-cream scene is always brimming with so many frozen possibilities.

A traditional scoop.

Despite the wide range of adventurous possibilities, some prefer a simple scoop. The best place for this would be Häagen-Dazs and with flavours such as tiramisu, dulce de leche and vanilla caramel brownie, the simple is not really all that simple after all. Luckily for us, there are two locations-- in Camana Bay and Georgetown. What better way to enjoy a warm day in paradise?

Head over to Italy.

Let’s take this to Italy. Here in Cayman there are two Gelato and Co. locations in Camana Bay and Georgetown, with only the freshest and finest in Italian chilly treats. This is a farm-to-table business and the team here makes their gelato from scratch. For those who are health conscious, gelato contains less fat than other ice creams and is a healthier alternative. If you have dietary restrictions, or are having a clean-eating type of day, Gelato and Co. also has dairy-free options. 

Do it your way.

If you are having a sweet-treat craving but don't want to cheat on your diet, Peachwave Frozen Yogurt is your place. Peachwave's self-serve frozen yogurt outlet features an extensive toppings bar with the sinfully sweet flavours of chocolates and gummies or health conscious options such as coconuts, granola and fruit. Calorie counts, sugar-free options and dairy-free alternatives are all offered here. Every two weeks the flavours change and it is always guaranteed that there will be at least one dairy free and NSA flavor to choose from. So you can indulge, guilt-free and just as good!

On your cheat day.

At Kazoku Japanese Bistro, the average scoop of vanilla ice cream is tempura fried! To top it all off it is served with locally-made rum cake. What's not to love?

Feel like a kid again.

Who doesn't love an ice-cream cake? Our favourite can be found at Dairy Queen in Georgetown where they have pulled out all stops with a three layer slice of heaven featuring vanilla on top, crunch centre in the middle and chocolate on the bottom. Every day can be your birthday at Dairy Queen!


With all of these offerings in the Cayman Islands, it's so easy to feel like you're six-years old again. And with so many diet-friendly substitutions, you can have all the fun without the guilt.
