Easter: Cayman Style

April is such a lovely time to be on Grand Cayman, especially during the festive Easter weekend. If you are visiting this weekend you will notice campsites set up all around the island, the long Easter weekend is traditionally a time for families to gather together to enjoy the fun of camping on the beach. (this is the only time camping is allowed!) Families will also be gathering for church services and Easter brunches throughout the island.

If you are visiting this weekend try to include an Easter service or Easter brunch in your schedule. Visitors are most welcome and heartily embraced at any one of the numerous churches. A few of the denominations that are nearby The Beachcomber:

A Lutheran service is offered every Sunday at 10:00 AM at the Ritz Carlton conference room. Just a short walk North of Beachcomber - after the service you may want to enjoy the Easter Family Brunch. Join the Easter Egg Hunt on the Ritz Great Lawn. Seven Restaurant will also offer their Champagne Brunch 12 - 3.

One of my personal favorites is the Cayman Minister's Association Easter Sunrise Service at the Public Beach on 7 Mile Beach. Grab a beach towel and walk the 15 - 20 minutes going North up the beach from Beachcomber. Listen to a lovely Easter message from local ministers and choirs as the sun rises over the island. There is always a seaside baptism after the service, a beautiful way to start the day!

St Ignatius Catholic Church offers Easter services 8:00 AM - 9:45 Am - 11:30 AM and 6:00 PM.

St George's Anglican Church services: 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Historical Elmslie Memorial Church is a beautiful church located in George Town.

Many of the local restaurants will be offering Easter brunch: LUCA, AQUA restaurant and The Ritz & The Westin restaurants are the closest within walking distance of Beachcomber. New to the neighborhood this year, is Blue Cilantro - offering Easter Brunch CI$ 55 W/bubbles CI$ 45 W/O bubbles!
Cracked Conch and Grand Old House restaurants will also be offering an Easter brunch.

Just a reminder: Good Friday, April 6 and Easter Monday, April 9 are Public Holidays and businesses will be closed. Restaurants and Tourist Attractions will be open !
How fortunate are we to be surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Caribbean Sea and enjoy the friendliness of the Caymanian people, not just at Easter but everyday ! What a blessing!

See you on the Beach !
