The continually evolving town of Camana Bay has enriched Cayman life immensely with its focus on providing a place where residents and tourists alike can enjoy some of Cayman’s top restaurants, shops and leisure facilities within a beautifully designed and landscaped pedestrian-friendly environment. The town also provides an excellent location for some of Cayman’s top firms to thrive and prosper and international names such as Citco, Ernst & Young and Camana Bay’s owners, the Dart group, all call Camana Bay home for their businesses. Some of the best mid-priced rental accommodation on the island can also be found at Camana Bay, with residents enjoying a short walk to work if they are lucky enough to be working in the town also.
Family-friendly, welcoming and fun, Camana Bay is a particular draw for people with young children. Seasonal events such as Easter egg hunts and the Christmas boating event called the Parade of Lights are a big draw for youngsters, as are the regular Story Time book readings given by Books and Books, as well as Kids Cultural Workshops. Adults can enjoy regular cookery classes held by Bon Vivant, Floetry poetry evenings at Books and Books and a host more regular events throughout the year. January’s Taste of Cayman, a food and wine festival that brings together some of Cayman’s greatest restaurant and wine offerings, is always a huge draw for the entire family.
In 2011, designer Moore Ruble Yudell was awarded the first annual Governor’s Award for Design and Construction Excellence for the Camana Bay town centre.
