Cayman Islands

At Williams², we help you get to know the Cayman Islands through a whole new lens: that of a homeowner.

Imagine: it’s your first night in your brand-new home in the Cayman Islands. You’re sitting on your deck overlooking the marina, freshly made banana bread cooling on the counter inside. The sweet scent of tropical fruit wafts through the windows and out into the world. It’s just past sundown, but there’s still enough light to see by as you watch the boats bob idly in the waves nearby. A soft breeze rustles through the trees around your house. Who needs air conditioning when it feels so good out here?

This isn’t just an image—it could be your reality with Williams² Cayman Islands real estate services. We can help you create a life in paradise, and we’re happy to share our expertise with you every step of the way.

Life in the Cayman Islands

Cayman is the perfect place for you to live and work. With roughly 60,000 residents, you’ll feel right at home in Cayman’s diverse community, including over 100 nationalities. Not only will you enjoy Cayman’s laid-back and cosmopolitan atmosphere, but you’ll also be able to experience the incredible diversity of its cuisine options.

Cayman’s Award-Winning Beaches

It’s not just Cayman’s culture that will make you fall in love with it—its beaches are some of the most irresistible in the world! Seven Mile Beach will become your favorite spot with crystal-clear turquoise waters and white sands. It’s long enough that you’ll be able to choose a variety of spots to lay down your beach towel, whether close to a bar or hotel amenities or somewhere more secluded from tourists.

You’ll never get tired of this tropical paradise, but if you need a break from the sun and surf, Cayman is also home to many condos, homes, and hotels just off the water. If a dreamy life on a beautiful island sounds like something for you, let Williams² help make it happen.

Gorgeous Island Scenery

Cayman has more to offer than 7 Mile Beach. To the north of Grand Cayman, you’ll find the rugged yet beautiful Barkers National Park, wholly unspoiled and ideal for kite surfing, horseback riding, dog walking, and barbecuing. Spotts Beach, further south, is a popular ‘turtle seeing’ destination that is always quiet and gorgeous. East End is a world unto itself, while Rum Point and Kaibo appear to be their own tropical island, making them ideal for a day or overnight homestay.

If you go to the sister islands, the Brac boasts the magnificent Bluff and world-renowned rock climbing, and Little Cayman, the jewel of the trio, is the most exquisite Caribbean island to visit, with only 250 residents, home to the Red Footed Boobies, and is simply the most magical location on Earth.

Infrastructure and National Stability

The Cayman Islands is recognized as a significant worldwide financial center, and the country’s political and economic strategy aims to maintain that status at all times.

Cayman is a leading international banking center, the world’s leading offshore hedge fund domicile, the world’s second-largest captive insurance center, and a global leader in structured finance. What does this signify for those thinking about relocating to Cayman? The island is overflowing with financial services specialists (including banks, accounting firms, and asset management companies) and the infrastructure to meet the needs of some of the world’s greatest professionals.

The Cayman Islands are also one of the most steady economies globally, with a currency pegged to the US dollar and low unemployment rates. The Cayman Islands Dollar (KYD) is fixed at a rate of 1 KYD = 1.25 USD against the US dollar. The Cayman Islands has the 14th highest GDP per capita in the world, according to the CIA World Factbook.

Well-regulated Infrastructure

The Cayman Islands’ professional infrastructure, business-friendly approach, flexibility, English common law framework, stability, well-regulated environment, and tax neutrality attract private and institutional investors. The Cayman Islands have no income tax, capital gains tax, or corporation tax. As long as they do, the Islands will continue to attract some of the world’s most significant financial institutions.

Island Tourism

Cayman’s robust tourist industry, which significantly impacts local life, is also worth mentioning. As a result of a high level of tourism and excellent service provided by the hotels and resorts in the area, residents have access to fantastic amenities. Cayman offers a diverse selection of first-class restaurants and bars, ranging from casual to upscale.

Because of the high level of tourism on the island, transportation routes to Cayman for both people and cargo are extremely active and growing. Every year, new flight paths are contracted, and sending goods to the Islands is not an exorbitant cost due to the volume of cargo that comes here. Cayman is a popular Caribbean destination for travelers, with excellent connections to the United States, Cuba, Europe, and Canada.

Why Consider Living
in Cayman?

The Cayman Islands are, without a doubt, the most incredible place to live. There are numerous reasons for this, but one of the most important contributions is the local community’s attitude toward ‘foreigners’. Cayman Kind is well-known, and Caymanian culture is still very much alive on the islands. Investing in property here is a wise decision, as people enjoy one of the greatest standards of living in the Caribbean, with an average salary of roughly $56,000. It’s not just good here, it’s fantastic.
