ANTILLES

 

Grand Cayman Islands is an upscale destination located in the Caribbean where you can get that perfect suntan on the sunny white sand beaches next to the crystal clear water. The temperatures usually stay pretty much the same with the lows in the upper 70s and the highs in the lower 80s.

 

There are a number of airlines that fly into the Grand Caymans including American, Delta Air Lines, and Cayman Airways. The Westin Casuarina Resort and Spa sits on the warm sands of the famous Seven Mile Beach. Westin has a fabulous pool with a swim-up bar, full service spa and an 18-hole golf course.

 

At Hemingway’s beachside restaurant you have to have advance reservations. The sophisticated yet casual restaurant overlooks Seven Mile Beach and serves yummy Caribbean cuisine. The Marriott Beach Resort is also located on Seven Mile Beach and is close to a wide range of shopping, dining, entertainment and nightlife venues. The hotel offers La Mer Spa and four restaurants including Solana which is international gourmet cuisine with oceanfront dining including great views of the beach and water. There are all kinds of activities here that range from scuba diving to horseback riding to deep sea fishing.

 

Make sure you are applying the Ocean Potion or Coppertone sunscreens often; especially when you’re in and out of the water or on the boats.

 

Thatch Cay is a small island of about 230 acres that is uninhabited but is located just a half mile off the northeastern coastline of St. Thomas and currently owned by a private investor. This beautiful island is named after the Teyer palms found in thick patches on the island which the enslaved would use to make a roof for their shacks.

 

It is one of the last privately undeveloped islands in the U. S. Virgin Islands and is known as a water sports paradise. To get to the island of Thatch Cay it is only a three minute boat ride from St. Thomas. St. Thomas has numerous flights into its airport provided by American Airlines®, US Airways and Delta Airlines to choose from. Fabulous accommodations await you at the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort or the Marriott Frenchman’s Reef.

 

The island of Thatch Cay offers a wonderful secluded spot where you can explore heavily wooded areas providing great nature hikes and numerous panoramic views. There is excellent snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing in these beautiful turquoise waters. The weather is generally created by the warm Caribbean breezes that keeps the weather sunny and warm so you’ll need to use plenty of sunscreen like Neutrogena, wear your Foster Grants and drink lots of Evian or Poland Spring water.

 

If you really fall in love with this island you can buy it for $24,000,000!
