The former capital of the Cayman Islands, the residential area of Bodden Town offers authentic island charm.
Quant Cayman-style cottages line the small roads around Bodden Town, while Bodden Town’s public beach offers stunning vistas and soft white powdery sand.
Many attractions here are relics of Cayman’s distant past, including Pedro St. James, the island’s oldest building dating back to 1780, and the 1840s Mission House, which once housed missionaries and teachers. Guard House Park preserves what was originally the town’s defense from raiding pirates.
You’ll also find a number of popular eateries serving up some of the best island fare, including the ever-popular Grape Tree Café.
