New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.
Cayman Islands is a popular destination many times during the year, and New Year’s Eve is certainly one of those times.
Both locals and tourists alike crowd onto the islands’ many beaches to watch fireworks displays, dance at midnight barefoot on the sand, go for a late night swim, or enjoy treats like oxtail, jerk pork, or fresh sea food barbecued right at the beach.
Others prefer to spend the last hours of the old year at dance parties, dining at high-end restaurants lining Camana Bay, or at special events organised by hotels and resorts. But despite all the public events and festive times out and about, Cayman Islands residents still find time to spend at home with family.
