North Side

Situated between Bodden Town and the East End, the North Side is a primarily residential district in Grand Cayman. As living here means a long drive to George Town or Seven Mile Beach, most residents here stick close by for daily life. A popular beach in this part of town is Starfish Point, where you can wade into its shallow waters to spot the many starfish that give the waters its name. Hikers can walk along the Mastic Trail, a centuries-old 2.3-mile-long path that goes through a variety of ecosystems. As a result of its location, Northside is a little cooler and windier than the rest of the island. Most houses have a view of the ocean and are spaced quite far apart, giving each a feeling of a private retreat. Residences here come up for sale rarely, as people who have found this side of paradise like to stay put.

Living in the Cayman Islands

Imagine a tropical paradise that is also an international financial center, and you’ll understand why so many are drawn to the Cayman Islands. Live here and you’ll find that going to your happy place is as simple as stepping outside—this is a place where the national philosophy is called Caymankind. Three islands make up this British Overseas Territory: Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac. Grand Cayman, the largest of the three, is home to most of the development, tourism, and population, while Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are both loved for their secluded beaches, spectacular diving, and unplugged lifestyles. The transformation of the island as a tourism and economic destination began in the 1960s, when legislation that established English common law and tax neutrality was introduced. Infrastructure expansion, including multiple airports, further improved the Cayman Islands’ quickly growing prosperity. Today, the Cayman Islands are a modern Caribbean gem.
