About Hell in Grand Cayman

The whole family will love this unique experience! Don’t let the name deter you– while technically unknown why this geological formation was named Hell, there are a few legends that may explain it. The most popular opinion of where it got its name is because of how it looks; many believe it to be similar to Hell’s landscape. Another theory is that if you throw a pebble into the rocks, an echo makes it sound as if it is falling into a deep abyss.

These limestone formations look as if you are looking out onto another world. Black and jagged, they are the opposite of what you would expect to see against the white sands and blue waters of Grand Cayman! This particular formation is known as “ironshore;” it is actually a fossilized coral reef that is more than a million years old.
