The Cayman Islands - a truly magical place and Jenny Palmer has provided a memento to treasure of a much-loved part of the Caribbean Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman - the three pristine coral land masses which comprise the Cayman Islands - total just 100 square miles. Yet this fascinating British Crown Colony, 480 miles south of Miami, is a leading offshore financial centre as well as a major tourist destination. Home of the famous green turtle (the national symbol), the Cayman Islands are perhaps best known for diving and underwater attractions. The waters around the islands are exceptionally clear making this one of the world's great dive sites. But, of course, there is so much more to see and to discover. In this island portrait, containing over 140 specially commissioned colour photographs, Jenny Palmer takes us on an in-depth tour of all three islands, highlighting not only the major tourist and underwater delights but also revealing their cultural, historical and artistic heritage. Above all, she provides an intimate portrait of the islanders themselves - close up - leading their everyday lives.
