Leading travel publication Condé Nast Traveler recently announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, recognizing the Cayman Islands as one of the Caribbean’s top locales. The leading luxury lifestyle destination was named one of the Best Islands to Visit in the Caribbean and the Atlantic. Well-known for pristine beaches, Caymankind locals, world-class cuisine, exotic wildlife and breathtaking vistas, the Cayman Islands is familiar with accolades of this caliber but following an unprecedented 19 months for travel worldwide, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (CIDOT) is pleased to accept the honor from Condé Nast Traveler readers this year.

More than 800,000 travelers submitted responses rating their experiences across the globe to help narrow down the best of the best – from destinations and resorts to airlines, luggage, and car rentals. The Readers’ Choice Awards program is the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.

“We are honored to be recognized as a premier travel destination, especially now as we’ve begun to welcome tourists back to our trio of unique islands once again,” said Hon. Minister for Tourism and Transport, Mr. Kenneth Bryan. “Condé Nast Traveler is one of the most respectable publications in our industry, and this accolade solidifies that the culture, cuisine and Caymankindness is among the best in the world.”

The Cayman Islands is the perfect location for wanderlusters looking to experience something new and exciting for their next getaway as travel returns. Each of the three distinct islands has something to offer for travelers of all ages and interests:
  • Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands, offering a wealth of activities, accommodations, and attractions. Within the island, you will find some of the most popular activities such as, Rum Point, Pedro St. James, Caymans Turtle Center, Seven Mile Beach, Stingray City, and more
  • Just 90 miles off the shore of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac is blessed with natural treasures, offering an off-the-beaten-path, adventure-fueled travel experience. Cayman Brac provides a peaceful environment for walking, hiking, biking, taking leisurely drives or just relaxing in blissful solitude
  • Little Cayman emphasizes the definition of an island getaway and remains a favorite of divers, naturalists and photographers. With only ten square miles and a population of less than 200, most of Little Cayman remains uninhabited, offering a rare combination of sun-drenched solitude, glistening beaches, and miles of untouched tropical wilderness to explore
