The Cayman Islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman, are an autonomous British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean. This popular Offshore Financial Center is also beloved by international tourists for its tropical climate, coral reefs, and sparkling beaches. One issue with running in the Cayman Islands is that there aren’t that many roads, especially outside of the George Town area of Grand Cayman. And, many of the roads are narrow and lack a decent sidewalk/shoulder. So use this guide to find the best spots!
On Grand Cayman, the best places to run are in the area surrounding Seven Mile Beach. The beach itself is a nice option for a longer sand run, while West Bay Road, Esterly Tibbetts Highway, South Sound Road, Queens Highway, and the Safehaven and Yacht Club neighborhoods offer safe and attractive pavement-running choices.
Since the Cayman Islands are relatively small, most visitors can rely on taxis and tours for infrequent trips. A rental car is a good option if you plan on moving around a lot. While the islands do have affordable bus services, the reliability differs. Also, keep in mind that the islands are hot and humid, so mornings and evenings are the best time to run. Hydration and sun protection are key.
