The Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea, is renowned for its exquisite beaches, world-class diving sites, and vibrant coral reefs. It consists of three islands: Grand Cayman, known for its luxury resorts and Seven Mile Beach; Cayman Brac, a haven for nature enthusiasts and adventurers seeking hiking and exploring caves; and Little Cayman, the smallest island, offering an intimate escape with untouched natural beauty and spectacular diving spots.
