Grand Cayman is generally known for its safety and pristine Seven Mile Beach, making it an ideal destination for solo female travelers. The island also scores 1 (which is the best grade possible) on the solo female travel safety index!
I can second that, during my over a month-long stay in Grand Cayman I had absolutely no uncomfortable incidents or issues!
Also, all hotel staff, taxi drivers, and anyone I met proudly stated that Grand Cayman is a super safe destination for solo traveling females (and males, for that matter).
No doubt about it, the Caribbean is a great destination for solo female travelers, and Grand Cayman is ALSO a great and safe choice for pampering, sun, and sand!
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
I traveled here for over a month last year, and I asked for advice from locals on anything that came to my mind about the situation on the island and about traveling as a solo female.
Everyone I met boasted about the island’s safety, and my experiences alignes perfectly with those statements.
Is Grand Cayman Safe For Solo Female Travelers?
I felt safe both day and night, and there was no catcalling or unwanted attention, which is not uncommon in a few of the other Caribbean islands in this region.
But don’t take my word for it or the locals; the statistics are clear: Grand Cayman is a very safe destination for all travelers, including solo females.
As I said initially, it has the best possible score in the solo female traveler safety index!
The island’s well-developed infrastructure and modern amenities make the whole visit to Grand Cayman a fun and stress-free experience!
There is also an abundance of group activities and tours available, so as a solo female traveler, you can choose to explore the island and waters with like-minded adventurers if you want to!
Tours In Grand Cayman
There are a variety of tours to do, in and out of the water, and my favorite was to go swimming with stingrays!
That was much more fun and entertaining than I thought beforehand and an experience I really recommend. You can read all about that tour here if you like.
I also recommend scuba diving; there are some really stunning reefs just outside the western shore that I enjoyed very much!
Off the northern coast, there are also really great dive sites that I did not get to experience as the weather was a bit rough when I was visiting.
Things To Do On Your Own
A great way to get around Grand Cayman on your own is to rent an electric bike and just whisk away along Seven Mile Beach.
It is also stunning by the way, with miles and miles of white sands and an infinite number of hotels, bars, and restaurants along the shore.
A great place to go for lunch, shopping, or an afternoon cocktail is Camana Bay, which is like a small town along the western shore of Grand Cayman.
