Stingray City, Grand Cayman Island

11. Stingray City, Grand Cayman Island

This remarkable aquatic city invites you to enter a surreal world where you'll find yourself surrounded by dozens of stingrays. The water is shallow here – only one metre deep – and crystal clear. It plays host to dozens of gentle residents, who tickle rather than sting.

Forget about kissing a frog to find your Prince Charming – apparently kissing a stingray will give you seven years of good luck, so pucker up! There are daily flights from London to the main Cayman Island, Grand Cayman, with British Airways.


You'll have to charter a boat to take you to the location, and there are several companies that do this. With Stingray City Trips, you can visit three locations including the stingray, the barrier reef and the coral garden for approximately £600 for up to 14 people. With TripAdvisor winner, Moby Dick Tours, you'll pay just under £40 for adults and £23 for kids. Children under four years old go free. This tour takes you to Stingray City and reef snorkelling.
