The Grand Cayman Islands: What We Ate and Drank

Editor’s Note: This is post is about a month late. Carry on. 

For my husband’s birthday, we traveled to the sunny (and expen$ive) Grand Cayman Islands! Before packing, we spent considerable time researching restaurants and bars on Yelp. We had a game plan: pina coladas at the Ritz Carlton, cracked conch and a dreamy sunset at Macabuca, bbq ribs at Pepper’s Grill, and bottle service at the Royal Palms Beach Club. 

Enjoying the best pina coladas known to man at the Ritz Carlton (second best were at Twin Brothers fish fry in the Bahamas)

We absolutely loved the service, view and hospitality at the Ritz Carlton’s bar, Bar Jack. We also had some time to enjoy the private beach at the Ritz. It was well manicured, the beach staff was very kind and the chairs were fancy af. If you wanted drinks, you flipped up a little yellow flag on your beach chair and someone magically appeared. Like right out of the sand. Also, their ocean floaties were A+. 

Enjoying a few “painkillers” and fish tacos at Sunshine Grill  Next up, we tried out the fish and shrimp tacos at the Sunshine Grill. While the tacos were amazing, it was so hot. Blinding hot. Like imagine sitting right next to the Raisin Bran sun from the cereal box. After we downed a few painkillers, the temperature went down about 10 degrees #SoBlessed.

Our first dinner on the island was spent at Macabuca, about a 20-minute cab ride from our hotel on Sevel Mile Beach. The vibe was lovely, and you can enjoy drinks and conch right on the edge of the water. Make sure you catch the sunset, which cloaks the whole beach in golden light. Magic hour.

We managed to get a cabana and bottle service at the Royal Palms Beach Club, which gave us Las Vegas vibes. You can’t tell by the picture, but by late Sunday afternoon the place was crowded and no pool float went unoccupied. We ate wings, drank Caybrew (the official beer of the Caymans) and I did the Shiggy Challenge. Summer complete.
