Grand Cayman Far Side Tour
Leave the crowds and financial centers behind as you head to the quieter, lesser-traveled areas of Grand Cayman. Relax on the beach at Rum Point on a hammock or lounge chair, looking over the peaceful North Sound.
Your Grand Cayman tour begins with a bus ride along the coast through South Sound, an upscale neighborhood dotted with a mixture of mansions and small, traditional-style cottages. Wind past Spotts Landing and through Lower Valley as you continue along the coastline. Buildings give way to lush landscapes as you and your guests arrive at Bodden Town, the island's first settlement. Established in the 1800s, this village was initially the capital of the Cayman Islands and a major hub of maritime activity until repeated hurricanes nearly filled in the harbor.
From there you will head to Rum Point with its sugar sand beaches on the north side. At Rum Point you will have 2 hours to explore the area your way: swim or snorkel in the crystal blue waters, relax in a hammock with Cayman's legendary Mudslide drink or enjoy a relaxing waterfront lunch.
Your Grand Cayman excursion concludes back in George Town, either by bus or ferry, where you can shop for beautiful jewelry, sample various flavours of rum cake and receive a mini history lesson at the statue-lined Hero's Square. Unwind and explore the softer side of Grand Cayman by booking your spot today.

the beach was full of seaweed and we can not take advantage It was good because we got back by car and we know a lot about the island but the island certainly worth a visit
It is very easy to get to this pick-up location. Although we didn't go to Rum Point because the sea weed was so bad, our tour guide, Birian, executed a plan B to perfection. Birian is knowledgeable, chatty and funny. As we drove around he was able to give a lot of history. Instead of Rum Point we went to Seven Mile beach next to the Governor's house. He also gave us the opportunity to check two restaurants to eat at. There was four of us on this tour and we chose to have lunch at a small seaside restaurant that had outside seating. Before he took us back to the cruise port he took us to Hell.

We loved our trip to the other side of the island. Rum Point was a great place to hang out. We had a delicious lunch of calamari and the drinks were the best we had the entire cruise. Beautiful setting. Enjoyed the trip there and back also. Only complaint is that it took much longer to get to Rum Point than we anticipated and we would have loved to have stayed longer.
