Easter is regarded as the most important of Christian holy days, and Easter in the Cayman Islands is celebrated with two holidays on Good Friday and the day after Easter Sunday.
|2020||10 Apr||Fri||Good Friday|
|13 Apr||Mon||Easter Monday|
|2021||2 Apr||Fri||Good Friday|
|5 Apr||Mon||Easter Monday|
The date of the holiday changes each year based on the centuries-old calculations that determine the Christian Ecclesiastical Calendar. This means that the date of Easter Sunday can be anytime between 22 March and 25 April.
Cayman Islands may seem like a far-flung, remote location, but they are full of activity for tourists and locals alike around Easter time.
In Cayman Islands, it’s a longstanding tradition for families to go to the beach together for all or part of the four-day long Easter Weekend. They set up camp on Good Friday, then swim, fish, barbecue, and play games on the shore.
There are many Easter events put on at the big hotel and resorts chains on the islands. These include visits from the Easter Bunny, egg hunts, face painting, other Easter games, and of course a proper Easter dinner.
Kitefest takes place this time of year when the winds are high, as does the round the island Easter Regatta sailboat race at Grand Cayman. And Chalkfest offers artists a chance to compete and show off their work, while plenty of music, games, and fun are available to entertainment families who attend.
