Booby Cay the place to be for sunset
This tiny little "island" is found in the North Sound of Grand Cayman.
It is split from the main land by a small channel, some 30 feet deep (which is also the deepest part of the North Sound!). This un-inhabited island is approximately 0.5 miles squared and named after the Booby bird, which uses it as a nesting colony.
Situated South-West of Starfish Point, it provides an awesome viewing spot for spectacular Caribbean sunsets!
The water in the channel is always flat because it is so protected by the mangrove which flourishes on the island.
In days gone by, boats used for turtle hunting were brought to this spot for maintenance - the boat would be "flipped" from one side to the other to faciliate repairs to the keel without having to remove it from the water - ingenious! To this day, this spot is still used by locals as a "hurricane hole" for their vessels.
