The Best Summer Ever!

There’s no better time than the summer to get a break from the rat race. While everywhere else in the world is packed busy, the Cayman Islands enjoy a quieter period when residents can rest, have a staycation, and take advantage of some terrific local bargains.

This summer feature section has information on deals that begin in July, and existing discounts for residents that you may not know exist. Remember to always ask vendors and watersports companies if they offer local rates, as many of them do, particularly in the next few months.

If you haven’t got your summer wardrobe sorted, it’s time to go shopping! Many boutiques carry the latest fashions, including swimsuits and cover-ups, as well as hats, stylish footwear, beach bags and other accessories. You’ll find the prices comparable to those in the U.S. and the designs on trend.

Of course, what kind of feature would this be if it didn’t give you adventurous ideas and great ways to spend your time off? If you’re not a scuba diver already, make a conscious effort to give it a try this summer. Tired of hitting the gym? Change your pace and your surroundings by getting into a watersport that will also keep you fit, like stand-up paddleboarding.

Ask yourself how long it’s been since you went for a swim in the sea. If it was so long ago that you can’t remember then it’s high time you got on your suit and went for a dip. It’s incredibly therapeutic and gives your muscles a workout.

Let’s face it, it’s getting hot, hot, hot out there, so before you venture outside, make sure you’re wearing some protection on your skin.

Even if you’re just driving the car around, it’s vitally important to protect any exposed parts of your body, particularly your face and eyes. Keep your sunglasses with you at all times, and always seek out shady areas.
