5. Watch the Sunset at the lighthouse
Sunsets in Little Cayman are truly sublime. Bring your camera to the lighthouse, sunset bar or at the lookout by the barge for an uninterrupted colorful spectacle in the sky and watch the sun dip below the horizon.

8. Saturday night BBQ at McCoy's Sunset Bar
You haven't been to Little Cayman if you haven't had a sundowner rum punch and scoffed some home-style Caymanian cooking at McCoys Sunset Bar. Every Saturday at 5pm Maxine and Wade McCoy welcome you into their back-yard, cook up smoky jerk, fish, rice and beans on an old Caymanian caboose and share their island stories with anyone who'll listen. Come hungry and curious and it'll turn out to be the best night you have in Little Cayman.
