Cayman Islands Introduction




Cayman Islands are an island dependency of the United Kingdom (UK) located in the West Indies. The dependency consists of three islands, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, and Cayman Brac, situated in the Caribbean Sea about 300 kilometres northwest of Jamaica.

George Town is the capital of the Cayman Islands. It is home to half the population of the country.

A Short Background

The Cayman Islands were colonized from Jamaica by the British during the 18th and 19th centuries. Administered by Jamaica from 1863, they remained a British dependency after 1962 when the former became independent.
