Helen Keller hit the nail on the head when she said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” Truthfully it is the feeling of happiness that stays will us long-term because we can still remember the way the experience made us feel, the smell of the Cayman Islands ocean breeze or the warm sunshine on our face. It allows us the opportunity to close our eyes and imagine ourselves back in our happy-place, somewhere that made us realize the real meaning of love.

After dinner, you can lounge on the netted front area of the catamaran while you stare at the star-lit sky and head back to the other side of the island.
Kissable Photo Locations
Considered one of the Cayman Islands best hidden treasures is a beautiful cove situated on the south side of the island and only a few minutes from George Town. The crystal clear blue waters of Smith Cove are showcased by the surrounding dark grey ironshore rock that protects the sandy beach area where you can put on your snorkeling gear. It is not uncommon for swimmers to see a friendly octopus, turtles, brightly coloured fish and tons of stunning coral formations during an afternoon of underwater adventure. Pack a romantic picnic lunch and sit under the sea grape trees while you spend the day enjoying all-day sunshine on your scenic beach vacation.
If you are out and about exploring the Eastern districts of Grand Cayman, you must make a point to stop at Starfish Point, near the famous Kaibo restaurant. There is no guarantee you will be lucky enough to see one of these bright orange creatures, but if you look hard enough you will see them hidden underwater in the turtle grass. Just remember these are very fragile creatures, so treat them with the ultimate care and take pictures with them in the water so they can stay in their natural habitat.
Happy Valentines Day from Cayman Villas!
