Grand Cayman has been named one of
the 20 best islands in the world in which to live.
The accolade was given by Islands
magazine in its annual ranking of ‘top 20 perfect islands’ based on real estate
value, immigration ease, expat community and quality of island life. It’s the
third year that Grand Cayman has made the list, following 2007 and 2009.
The magazine was impressed by
Cayman’s combination of tropical living and modern services, calling it a
stable and safe island that would remind people of their home but was different
‘in all the right ways’.
Other benefits, according to the
magazine, are a stable economy, safety, high living standards and convenience
for US access.
It also listed welcoming
immigration policies and a lack of restrictions on foreigners wanting to purchase
the tax-free real estate.
