Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac make up the Cayman Islands. They are located 480 miles from Miami, south of Cuba, with Jamaica to the southwest. Grand Cayman and Little Cayman are relatively flat with rocky coastlines, but the Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman offers up a popular stretch of sand for the tourists and locals alike. Cayman Brac has a central bluff rising to 140 feet and falling sharply into the sea. All three islands are surrounded by coral reefs, which lie at the top of a dramatic wall. Many ships call the Cayman depths their final resting place. Great photo opportunities abound for the budding and serious photographer alike.
