Easter is a very special time in the Cayman Islands. The holiday centres on the religious event; both Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays and there is plenty of Easter themed entertainment to keep the whole family entertained.

2017 Easter Holiday Dates

Easter “Eggstravaganza”

Never one to shy away from embracing a holiday, Cayman has a fantastic array of Easter events for kids to enjoy. The Easter Bunny visits the big hotels such as the Ritz-Carlton and the Marriott Resort, where you’ll also find Easter egg hunts, games and other Easter themed activities. The Ritz-Carlton offers kids the chance to meet Peter Rabbit on the 14th & 15th April!


Easter Egg Digs

Choose from two Easter Egg Digs! On the 8th April join Z99's Dig at Royal Palms where kids will have opportunity to dig in the sand for as many eggs and prizes as possible. On the 15th April children can hunt for Cadbury's treats at  Salty's Bar & Grill's Easter Egg Dig.


Let's Go Fly a Kite

Update (4th April): The Kitefest festival, usually held at Kaibo, has been cancelled for 2017.


Brunch it Up

Brunches are even more appealing when there is a holiday the next day, so you’ll find Cayman’s popular brunch spots are even busier than usual on Easter Sunday.  Hot spots include LUCA, the Ritz-Carlton, Marriott Beach Resort, the Westin, Aqua, Grand Old House, the Lighthouse, Mizu, Grand Old House and many more. Savour copious amounts of incredible food and free flowing bubbles, and then sleep it off on the beach or by the pool for a seriously relaxing day! Keep an eye on our list of Sunday Easter Brunches as details on more Easter Brunches become available.



Artists are invited to leave their easels at home and use the streets of Camana Bay as their canvas for the 14th annual Chalkfest competition. Easter-themed treats and games will be on offer along with music, an artisans market, face painting, balloon animals and a live story reading by Books & Books. The competition is open to artists of all ages and abilities. Register on the day for a fee of CI$5 for kids and CI$10 for adults with prizes to be won in different age categories - proceeds benefit The National Gallery’s Outreach Programme. Saturday 15th April, 10am-1pm.

Round the Island Race

Whether you’re a sailor or a spectator, Cayman’s Easter regatta is sure to thrill. The race is in its 52nd year and is organised by the Cayman Islands Sailing Club. On Good Friday around 20 boats will leave the North Sound and sail 49 miles east. The race finishes with festivities at Sunset House. On Easter Saturday the boats depart from the previous day’s finish line and race the 12 miles round to the north sound, completing the circle round the Island. It’s a great opportunity to see local sailors in action and enjoy some tropical drinks. Crew places are often available for the event. For more information call (345) 3267 793 or visit www.sailing.ky.

Carry on Camping

Camping on Cayman’s beaches over Easter is a long time tradition in the Cayman Islands. Every year you will see hundreds, if not thousands of people camping on beaches all over the Cayman Islands. It’s a great opportunity for families and friends to get together and reminisce about simpler times, as well as enjoy the natural beauty of the Cayman coastline. Families start marking their spot in the days leading up to Good Friday, when they move in and begin a long weekend of fun filled activities such as swimming, fishing, playing games, barbequing and generally have a great time!

Cayman Staycation

Staycations on the North Side or Eastern Districts are very popular amongst residents over the Easter break. Avoid airport stress and spend the weekend relaxing in a lovely villa with stunning sea views. Take advantage of all the activities available with White Sand Water Sports and Cayman Kayaks for an adventure filled weekend. Refuel with a BBQ at home or a fantastic meal at Kaibo or Rum Point. A wonderful weekend away from everyday life!

Sister Islands

If it’s true peace and tranquillity you desire then take a short plane ride to Little Cayman or Cayman Brac. Enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the islands as well as the incredible diving and unique cultural history.
