Grand Cayman Climate

The Cayman Islands lay in the far Western Caribbean, closer to the equator then a lot of people realise, lying between latitudes 19 and 20 North. They are nicely cooled by prevailing trade winds, but the sun is HOT and we advise always to wear sun cream, a shady hat and sunglasses. Please take the sun in small doses to avoid sunburn.

What to Wear

Visitors should remember that the Cayman Islands remains a "proper" British Crown Colony and our people are conservative by nature. Also note that the Cayman Islands Government strictly prohibits all forms of public nudity so please do not wear bathing suits or scanty beach wear beyond the beach or cruise ship - and cover up when in public areas elsewhere.As we say in Cayman, Please keep your shell on!

Neat, casual and comfortable tropical attire are appropriate throughout the Cayman Islands. Visitors will want to bring smart casual wear for evenings out at our restaurants. When attending church services, "Sunday dress" is appropriate - shorts and T-shirts are not considered acceptable, especially for ladies. However, ties are not expected!
