Friday night in the Cayman Islands is nothing short of spectacular when you can hop on a catamaran after work, and sail across the North Sound where a beach BBQ awaits. After enjoying a cocktail, or two, from the Catamaran’s cash bar, you arrive at pristine Rum Point Beach. A welcome daiquiri in hand, you marvel at the majestic sunset as you soak your toes in the soft white sand. A BBQ Buffet is set up on the beach with all the Caribbean favorites: grilled fish, jerk pork and jerk chicken, curries, pasta, ribs and all the trimmings. After your meal, its back to the ship where you can laze on the catamaran’s hammocks and do some stargazing before arriving back at Safeheaven. Can you think of a better way to end your week?
Gala season is actually year round, the Cayman Islands have a strong desire to give back, and throughout the year there are various glittering events, from the intimate to the very grand, that support important causes. Some of the more illustrious are the RCIPS Outstanding Service Awards, Hatitude, Red Cross and the Hospice Big Bash and of course the upcoming 2015 2015 Breast Cancer Gala on October 3rd.
As a very active and healthy living environment, you can count on numerous walks, runs, sea swims and triathlons in the Cayman Islands throughout the year. The Flowers Sea Swim, Cayman Islands Marathon and the CI Triathlon, to name a few, bring the whole community together. Whether you are participating or not, these events are fun to attend, and have become quite the tradition. The next big sporting event is the Cayman Islands marathon on December 6th 2015, boasted to be an intimate, friendly and well-organized event. A rapidly popular marathon, the course is a Boston Qualifier, and is one of the most picturesque; if you are going to run a grueling 26.2 miles, wouldn’t you want to do it amongst tropical flora, fauna and sea side? Oh, and the course, is flat, sign me up!
This annual family friendly event runs every year in November. 11 days of music, street dances, games, local food, a float parade, fireworks shows and sporting events. On the first Saturday, a mock pirate invasion makes a surprise landing in George Town harbour with the pirates capturing the Governor! All in good fun, thousands line the streets to watch the show, the only event of its kind in the Caribbean region. As the Cayman Islands National Festival, Pirates Week is the country’s largest festival with 32 different events drawing in some 35 000 people. If there’s one event you shouldn’t miss, it’s this one, savvy?
