With so many options it will be hard to decide whether to cruise up and down Seven Mile Beach on a wave runner, take it a little slower with a kayak or paddle board or just enjoy the fish while snorkeling.
Need something even more exciting? Try wake boarding, kiteboarding, parasailing, windsurfing or sailing. There is a Red Sail Sports desk at Tiki Beach located 1.8 miles from Clearwater House that offers equipment rental.
Cayman Horse Riding offers beach, trail and swim rides on horseback from Barker’s Beach (2.6 miles from Clearwater House).
Barkers Beach is home to one of the island’s most secluded beaches. Far and away from the tourist crowd, its wildlife thrive with very little disturbance. Rides are offered during the day all year round.
Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism – wow!
An example of these organisms which most people are familiar with is the firefly…but bioluminescent creatures are found throughout marine habitats, from the ocean surface to the deep sea floor. In Cayman, there are millions of single celled organisms called dinoflagellates that float in the sea, which when disturbed, emit a bright white light. There are many tour operators which offer various ways for you to observe and even SWIM among these organisms! They are most striking during certain cycles of the moon, when it is darkest outside, so the tours generally only run about 2 and a half weeks out of each month. Check with us to find out whether your stay at Windsong aligns with the optimal moon cycle!
Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park
Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is a non-profit outdoor garden and wildlife facility located on Frank Sound Road in the North Side District about 45 minutes from Georgetown. If you are making a day of exploring Rum Point and Starfish Point on the North Side, add the Botanic Park to your list and enjoy a unique mix of gardens, culture and history.
The park is owned jointly by the Cayman Islands Government and the National Trust for the Cayman Islands. Park areas include the Woodland Trail, Floral Colour Garden, Cayman Heritage Garden, a lake, an orchid boardwalk exhibit, and a Blue Iguana Habitat.
Be sure to purchase tickets for the Blue Iguana Safari Tour and see the native Blue Iguana up close. The tour operates Monday through Saturday only at 11am. No reservations are required. The Blue Iguana (Cyclura lewisi) is native to the Cayman Islands, is still considered an endangered reptile species…and is not to be confused with the invasive green iguanas which are not endangered and are the bane of our existence.
