Summer Here and it’s time to re-think Grand Cayman – think East End
Booking a trip to Grand Cayman for a family vacation? Pass on the hustle and bustle of 7-mile beach and head over to the undiscovered East End and vacation with the locals.
The Reef Resort, www.thereef.com, is strategically located on the undiscovered East End of the island. It’s close to Vivine’s Kitchen, a locals favorite, and Rum Point Beach, a family favorite. They offer the largest single stretch of beach on the island, (1,600 ft.), everyone’s favorite.
Just launched in time for summer is the resort’s non-motorized water sports program with crazy cheap rentals at just $20 per person per day. Try kayaking, kite surfing, paddle boarding and power snorkeling. Jamie and Cathy Myles were the first to experience power snorkeling (motorized snorkeling) and they loved it, “it was a blast” adds the Myles. “Power snorkeling” has become the hottest activity at the resort, so much so that the motorized sports crew can’t keep up with all of the requests. To book in advance, contact the on-site concierge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Reef also just announced a new summer soft adventure vacation package the whole family will enjoy; the new Junior Adventure Package. This five-night package starts at $2,075 (no resort or services fees), and can accommodate a family of four. Package value adds; snorkeling, mid-size care rental, ½ day paddle boat with canopy, one-hour glass bottom two-person kayak rental x 2, behind the scenes tour at the Blue Iguana sanctuary and a $25 donation to the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme made on the families behalf. Visit the Blue Iguana website to learn more about the perils of the Blue Iguana: www.blueiguana.ky
A little too relaxed for you? No worries! An off-site trip to the renowned Stingray City, or a snorkel or dive adventure with the resort’s on-site professional dive partners, Ocean Frontiers, will liven-up the day. On-site activities are also plentiful (www.thereef.com/en/thingsToDo/activitySchedule.html). Sign up for stargazing, water aerobics, and yoga, or just get lazy with a read in the shade of a Palapa. Evenings at the resort are also happening as nightly entertainment, restaurant specials and daily happy hour are also on tap.
Quite simply: The Reef Resort Has it All!
