Grand Cayman Car Rental Guide

Cayman Turtle Farm
Cayman Turtle Centre

A Grand Cayman car rental is easy and convenient because both major points of entry—the cruise port and Owen Roberts International Airport—are close to each other.

That means the major car rental companies are nearby, too.

Making it even easier is that this small island has relatively few roads with quick access to golf courses on the east end of the island, nature preserves on the west end and beaches and resorts throughout.

Should cruise and resort visitors rent a car to see the best attractions on the island? A shore excursion is the best option for the most popular attractions, which include Stingray City - Seven Mile Beach and the Cayman Turtle Centre.

Cruise Port to Turtle Centre

Anyone who wants to see more attractions may want to rent a car because many of the other popular attractions are spread out over the island.

For example, the turtle center is eight miles north of the port, Rum Point is 25 miles northeast and Crystal Caves is 19 miles east.

The town of Hell with its popular “postcards from Hell” is just north of the turtle centre. Mastic Trail is a half hour east of the cruise port and near the Crystal Caves.
