West Bay

Primarily residential, West Bay is located at the top of the western end of Grand Cayman. Living here means proximity to both Seven Mile Beach and George Town, but without the crowds and higher cost of housing. It also has some of the best eateries on the island, with everything from roadside stands to high-end dining. West Bay is also home to two of Grand Cayman’s most well-known attractions: the Cayman Turtle Centre and Hell, a patch of blackened limestone that was formed over 24 million years. (Hell has its own post office, if you want to send some mail from its depths.) Housing options here include beachfront properties along Baggy Sands Road, historic cottages, gated communities, and new construction condominiums, and single-family homes. With its warm community feel, West Bay is favorite neighborhood for those in the know and quickly gaining a heavenly reputation among newcomers.

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.
