Cayman Paradise: Everything you need
The Cayman Islands are one of the overseas British territories that have quietly become a favourite among expats. The fact that the Cayman Islands are one of the biggest offshore tax havens is another huge attraction. A majority of the expats in the Cayman Islands are from the United Kingdom, the United States, Jamaica, and Canada, therefore it is predominantly English spoken.
The Cayman Islands comprise of 3 islands, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac. Each of these islands has different areas of interest of its own. So, if you are into Scuba diving or snorkelling, head over to the Grand Cayman. If you like deep-sea fishing more, Cayman Brac is the island for you, while wildlife lovers should visit Little Cayman.
One reason why so many expats choose to move to the Cayman Islands is that it offers them a welcome break from their fast-paced lives. However, some ‘home’ comforts are always wanted, and Kirk Market has the answer.
