Kicking off 2024 with grandeur, the Cayman Islands have emerged as leaders in global travel destinations, clinching two prestigious accolades that spotlight their unparalleled allure. Forbes Travel Guide has heralded the islands as the pinnacle among its “Top 24 Destinations for 2024,” attributing this honour to the islands’ dynamic culinary scene, among other attractions. Simultaneously, Trip Advisor’s Best of the Best 2024 Travellers’ Choice Awards recognised the Cayman Islands as the eighth-best Nature Destination worldwide, the highest rank for any Caribbean destination.

This dual recognition underscores the islands’ reputation as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean. Forbes lavished praise on Grand Cayman’s rich dining landscape, including the celebrated Blue by Eric Ripert at the Ritz-Carlton and the innovative Library by the Sea bar at the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa.

These accolades, derived from the genuine experiences and reviews of global travellers, celebrate the Cayman Islands’ vibrant bar and culinary scene, rich cultural attractions, and the serene beauty of its natural landscapes. From the iconic Seven Mile Beach to the adventurous cliffs of Cayman Brac and the pristine underwater world of Little Cayman, the islands offer diverse experiences that cater to every type of traveller.
