Little Cayman is the smallest of the three Cayman Islands and has the smallest resident population - around 250 people. It is home to the Caribbean's largest bird sanctuary and some spectacular diving. Underwater explorer and marine conservationist Jacques Cousteau famously called Little Cayman one of the world's top three dive destinations. Little Cayman's Point of Sand beach, at the tip of the island's East Point, is known as one of the finest unspoiled stretches of sand in the Caribbean.
Little Cayman offers a variety of real estate, from vacant land to condos to luxury beachfront houses. The long, thin, geography of Little Cayman (around 10 miles long and one mile wide) means ample opportunity for beachfront real estate development and a number of modestly priced vacant lots are available, from a quarter-acre up. Bigger inland lots up to 15 acres are also available.
Lacking the glitz, glamour and facilities of Grand Cayman, 80 miles by air to the south, Little Cayman is all about relaxation and escape, although charming amenities are available. Residents and divers are served by a number of resorts, restaurants and rental villas close to popular dive spots. Amenities such as the islands only grocery store, bank and medical clinic are clustered around the Edward Bodden Airfield on the west side.
