Water Activities for Solo Travelers to Enjoy 

Traveling to the Cayman Island solo doesn’t mean you have to remain alone for every adventure. In fact, an amazing opportunity if you’re focusing your time on Grand Cayman fun is to join up with a tour group.

1. Visit the Iconic Stingray City

This is one of the most popular attractions in the area and for solo travelers, it’s a great way to take part in unique activities in good company too. Stingray City is found off the north shore of Grand Cayman and provides access to a natural sandbar where guests can swim with stingrays that call the waters home. The waters are calm and clear, making it easy to observe your above and below the wave surroundings. The tours are organized by professional guides, so you have an expert to ask questions of as you swim.

2. Starfish Point

Also within easy reach of Stingray City, this beloved destination is perfect for solo travelers to take time to enjoy snorkeling without the crowds included. The shallow waters at Starfish Point offer up a chance to view everything from tropical fish and sea urchins to starfish as well.  

3. Other Outdoor Experiences

Add Retail Therapy to the Itinerary

A tremendous solo traveler activity to enjoy in the Cayman Islands is shopping! When you’re looking for a destination where you can pair retail therapy with delicious dining too, Camana Bay checks every box on the list. This waterfront shopping center houses:

  • A collection of captivating eateries and storefronts to explore at your very own, preferred pace.
  • Big-name designers and boutiques, featuring everything from luxury brands to amazing sale prices.

It’s a great place to grab a coffee, enjoy people-watching, or sit down for a full dinner and make the most of treating yourself to a savory and well-deserved palate-pleasing moment.
