If you are planning to move to the Caribbean, you might be “swimming” in potential locations. There are a plethora of nations and islands for you to choose from, which can feel a bit daunting. There are places like Belize, Mexico, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Curacao, Barbados, and so much more. Which would be best for you?
One of the best places that rank at the top of nearly all of the lists of best places to live in the Caribbean, however, is the Cayman Islands. Most expatriates know about the luxuries of living on Grand Cayman, as it is the main island and has the capital city of George Town.
However, there are two other smaller islands to make for this perfect trifecta: Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. These are often overshadowed by Grand Cayman, but they offer their own unique qualities and make for superb Caribbean living as well.
If you are looking for Little Cayman land for sale, then you should know what to expect when owning property there. What are some of the most outstanding advantages of living in Little Cayman?
Smaller in Population and Geography
Amongst all three of the islands, Little Cayman is the smallest in size, both geographically and in population. Little Cayman is only ten miles long and one mile wide. Meanwhile, Grand Cayman is 22 miles long and Cayman Brac is 12 miles long.
Its population reflects this size as well. There are less than 200 residents on the entire island, providing the people who do live there with ultimate tranquility and privacy. Grand Cayman, in comparison, has around 60,000 residents and Cayman Brac has around 2,000.
If you are looking for a place in the Caribbean for quiet and privacy, then Little Cayman is calling your name, and you should really consider looking for Little Cayman land for sale.
Diverse Wildlife and Untouched Nature
Because of its small population, Little Cayman has more room for untouched wildlife. The flora and fauna are similar to what you would find on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, of course, but it is far less cultivated and disturbed by development and other human activities.
To provide some examples of the diversity of the wildlife, the island has 20 species of orchids, 21 native reptiles and amphibians, and 181 species of birds. It also has the largest population of red-footed boobies in the Caribbean and has a Booby Pond Nature Reserve with 20,000 boobies and 350 frigate birds. Therefore, when living on Little Cayman, you would get the unique opportunity to enjoy nearly undisturbed nature up close and personal every day.
Alongside the stunning nature, you would experience there, you would also be provided with beautiful beaches and some of the best diving in the world. If you’re looking for tranquil and pristine, white-sand beaches and amazing diving, then Little Cayman is the island for you.
Convenient Distance from Other Locations
Even though it’s a separate island from Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, Little Cayman really is not as isolated as you might think. If you ever feel the need to leave your dream-like oasis, then you can hop on a flight to Grand Cayman, which is less than one hour away. To get to Cayman Brac, simply hop on a boat and ride for less than one hour or hop on a flight.
