Whether on a Cayman tour or a self-guided stroll, time spent on our many hiking trails is sure to add another dimension to your Cayman Islands trip.

On Grand Cayman, the Mastic Trail is a two-mile stretch back in time - dating back at least 100 years through one of the last remaining example’s of the Caribbean’s dry, subtropical forests.

Adventurous hikers are thrilled by the glory of with its spectacular cliff walks on the 140-foot bluff that thrusts vertically from the ocean floor. Saunter along one of the many forest or beach trails that dot the island. On , hikers can stroll along one of more than a dozen secluded on a mostly undeveloped coastline, or spend time exploring the lagoons, mangrove forests, salt ponds and pristine wetlands that make up this tiny island paradise.
