The Cayman Islands are located 150 miles south of Cuba in the Caribbean Sea, 170 miles northeast of Jamaica and 480 miles south of Miami.
All three islands are low lying and are composed of limestone and consolidated coral, an outcropping of the Cayman Ridge, a submerged mountain range that extends west from the Sierra Maestra in Cuba. The Cayman Trench, the deepest part of the Caribbean at a depth of over four miles, separates the three small islands from Jamaica.
The ‘Sister Islands’ of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are located about 90 miles northeast of Grand Cayman.
Little Cayman Beach Resort is situated on a private beach on the south shore of Little Cayman, bordered by the South Hole Sound, a turquoise lagoon protected by the reef.
