Pirates Week Festival. Cayman Islands.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

The Pirates Week Festival is the biggest annual event in the Cayman Islands, drawing over 35,000 patrons each year. During this time the islands are transformed into a mass of colour and revelry, with more than 30 events hosted over three weekends, across all three islands!

You can expect to enjoy an abundance of crafts, music, culture, sporting events, lively steel pan, song and costume competitions, kids activities and delicious local island food!

The festivities usually start off in Cayman Brac on the first weekend of November, then move to Grand Cayman during the second weekend, and finish in Little Cayman on the third weekend.

The most famous of the Pirates Week festivities is the Landing Pageant and Float Parade, which takes place in the capital of George Town in Grand Cayman. Thousands of spectators line the streets to watch a mock take-over of the island by a band of fighting pirates, who come ashore by pirate ship! This is followed by a glittering parade, street dances, and fireworks.

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands (map) are a self-governing British Overseas Territory, in the western Caribbean Sea. The 264-square-kilometre (102-square-mile) territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, which are located to the south of Cuba and northeast of Honduras, between Jamaica and Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. The capital city is George Town on Grand Cayman, which is the most populous of the three islands.

One of Grand Cayman’s main attractions is Seven Mile Beach (map), site of a number of the island’s hotels and resorts. Named one of the Ultimate Beaches by Caribbean Travel and Life, Seven Mile Beach (due to erosion over the years, the number has decreased to 5.5 miles) is a public beach on the western shore of Grand Cayman Island. Historical sites in Grand Cayman, such as *Pedro St. James Castle (map) in Savannah, also attract visitors.

The most popular area to do this is *Stingray City, Grand Cayman. Stingray City is a top attraction in Grand Cayman and originally started in the 1980s, when divers started feeding squid to stingrays. The stingrays started to associate the sound of the boat motors with food, and thus visit this area year round.

The Caymans have historically been a tax-exempt destination, and the government has always relied on indirect and not direct taxes. The territory has never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or any wealth tax, making them a popular tax haven.

The Cayman Islands has a tropical wet and dry climate, with a wet season from May to October, and a dry season that runs from November to April. Seasonally, there is little temperature change.

The Weekender – Pirates Week 2016.

You’re different. You crave spontaneity over structure, adventure over average. You don’t follow directions unless they take you off the beaten path. You don’t just live in the moment, you create the moment. While everyone else is pinning it, liking it or sharing it, you get up and do it. Your palate is sophisticated enough to dine at award winning restaurants and untamed enough to enjoy street side fare. Some would say that you take everything to the extreme, from spelunking in caves haunted by legend to being cradled in braided hammocks. You take every event and make it an experience.
