About East End, Grand Cayman
Some 420 miles south of Miami, surrounded by the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean Sea, lie the Cayman Islands. Grand Cayman, the largest of the three, is blessed with warm steady winds from November to April. The crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches and Caribbean island life mean there is always plenty to do, no matter what the weather.
The wind direction is generally northeast or east-northeast, and ranges from 16 to 25 knots. At East End you will find a couple of sand bars and a nice reef, which creates some world-class slicks with good waves on the outside when the swell is pumping. The variety of conditions will keep every kitesurfer happy.
