Inundated with the vibrant tropical colours of the lush Caymanian flora, bright coral reefs, flourishing marine life, and exotic native birds, the Cayman Islands are a showcase of natural beauty. Approximately 22 miles long and 4-8 miles wide, Grand Cayman has a population of about 60,000 and is the largest of the three islands.
Cayman’s proximity to the equator means the islands enjoy a tropical climate year-round, cooled by the prevailing trade winds. The relatively dry winter season runs from November to April, with temperatures ranging from 72F to 86F during the day. The rainy summer season is May to October, with May and October being the wettest months. Temperatures reach from 85F to 90F.
Barkers Beach is home to one of the island’s most secluded beaches. Far and away from the tourist crowd, its wildlife thrive with very little disturbance. Located about 20 minutes from the capital, George Town, Barkers Beach is situated in the quaint district of West Bay, at the northern-most tip of the island.
Protected as a national park for indigenous flora and fauna, quiet and solitude are the order of the day on this most tranquil beach.
