A visit out east is a 'must-do' while visiting Grand Cayman. It is the home of many of the island's best attractions that will make your Caribbean adventure even more special. 

Opened by Queen Elizabeth II herself, the Botanic Park is a haven for wildlife lovers. The abundance of flora and fauna is just one of the many attractions. The site is also the home of Cayman's Blue Iguana and is the only place you'll find this unique creature. Make sure to add this to your itinerary!

A wonderful adventure for little ones is Cayman Parrot Sanctuary. There are so many creature to interact with, including agoutis, guinea pigs, snakes, hermit crabs and, of course, parrots! Though it does get hot, there are plenty of shaded areas to cool down in. 

Tukka East is an Australian-Caribbean fusion restaurant serving locally caught fish and international favourites. You must try their lionfish tacos. They are some of the best on the island!

Climb the Lighthouse at Lighthouse Park, a port of entry to East End in the 19th century. The site of Cayman’s first lighthouse, visitors can climb to the top of the lighthouse and enjoy the incredible views out to sea.
