Little Cayman East To West

Little Cayman, Cayman Islands

Easy - New

Little Cayman, the Jewel of the Cayman Islands, is situated about 60 miles east of Grand Cayman. With a permanent population of 250 it is the least developed of the 3 Cayman Islands. Famous for its world-renowned scuba diving it is also the home of the largest breeding colony of Red-footed Boobies in the western hemisphere, as well as Magnificent Frigate Birds and the endangered West Indian Whistling duck. The ride is relatively flat with a few crossings of the 30-50 foot central ridge. It passes the east end with occasional glimpses of nearby Cayman Brac 5 miles away and the East end lighthouse and on to the more developed western end. You will pass the only store on the island, the airport, the Little Cayman Museum and the Cayman Islands National Trust on the edge of the Booby Pond Nature Reserve. Native Rock Iguanas can sometimes be glimpsed sunning themselves on the side of the road (Look for one growling at the oncoming rider just past the east end lighthouse).
