Couple Getaways - C - Cayman Islands

Looking for a place of beauty, relaxation, and romance? Go no further than the Cayman Islands.

150 miles sout of Cuba there are three islands: Little Cayman, Grand Cayman, and Cayman Brac. The three islands are visible limestone peaks of a submerged mountain range more than four miles deep.

The magical underwater kingdom of coral reefs that ring these islands are not to be missed.

If you're an underwater enthusiast, you'll have the pleasure of exploring over 200 underwater sites while enjoying the vast array of exotic and colorful tropical creatures that inhabit the area.

At Sting Ray City, tourists are welcome to swim with the otherworldly creatures. Deep-sea fishing expeditions are available. If you prefer above the water sports, you'll find plenty of things to do including: Windsurfing, wave running, water-skiing, and parasailing.

If you prefer to stay dry, visitors have the option to enjoy the view in the Atlantis Submarine where the submarine trips above the reefs to treat you to a view of the tropical fish in their habitat.

On land there are just as many activities to take part in such as golf, tennis, birdwatching, and hiking in the abundant beautiful locations including Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park , the Booby Pond Nature Reserve, and the two-century-old Mastic Trail. As well as touring the ancient caves on Cayman Brac.

And don't forget to visit the world's only sea turtle farm, this. The Cayman Turtle Farm breeds and releases sea turtles into the wild.

This is definitely a place I'd love to go with my sweetheart. How about you?

All throughout April I'll be posting about Couple Getaways as part of the A-Z Challenge. I hope you'll stop by for the next destination! No passport necessary ;)
