The Cayman Islands are featured in a series of 10 short films.
The films are available online and offer an in-depth look at Cayman’s famous locations, culinary presence and unique culture, read a news release from the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.
From Camana Bay’s world-class culinary offerings and the sounds of Cayman’s Swanky Kitchen Band to the ex-USS Kittiwake dive site and the untouched Cayman Brac, host and notable adventure travel expert Richard Bangs offers special insights into the Cayman Islands’ prominent locations. Bangs has more than three decades of experience in adventure travel, exploring the first descents of more than 35 rivers around the globe. He has published more than 1,000 magazine articles, 19 books and a score of documentaries.
The 10 short films were created in association with Energizer, a power products company, and online bookers Orbitz.
Mr. Bangs sampled the best restaurants, romantic spots, attractions and street food around all three islands.
Viewers can find out why a Cayman fish fry is unlike any other in the world; check out a restaurant that is helping Cayman cement itself as the culinary capital of the Caribbean; or learn the history and culture behind Cayman’s music scene. There are also natural offerings, including snorkelling at Stingray City and hiking in Cayman Brac.
Ecological efforts undertaken by the Cayman Islands to preserve its unique environment also feature.
“[This project] presents an opportunity for further awareness of our unique offerings and our distinguished destination,” said Cayman Islands Premier McKeeva Bush. “We are delighted that our celebrated attractions, exceptional cuisine and distinctive culture will be featured alongside high-profile companies like Orbitz and Energizer.”
Director of Tourism for the Cayman Islands Shomari Scott said these vignettes also presented the opportunity for Cayman’s lesser-known attractions to be highlighted.
“It is wonderful that the secluded nature of Cayman Brac and local Caymanian food will be highlighted alongside popular attractions such as Stingray City. It provides an excellent opportunity for visitors, whether visiting for the first time or returning to our destination, to explore our undiscovered treasures,” Mr. Scott said.
