How to Make It a Great Day at Grande Cayman

Ready to escape harsh winter weather where you are? Or the harsh reality of a tough work week? Grande Cayman Resort is the perfect place to escape.


You have a retreat here within the retreat of Myrtle Beach itself.


We’ve put together a fun itinerary of how you could spend a glorious day at Grande Cayman. And you won’t have to leave the property. It’s only one example of how easy it is to get lost (in a good way) here. We bet you could come up with a million more.

Tips for Relaxing on Vacation

The last thing you want is to go from one hustle and bustle to another. When we say get-away, we mean it. Here are suggestions to get there.

  1. Plan to Relax

We get it: There’s so much to do in a getaway, and you want it all. It’s okay to schedule some activities, but leave big blocks of free time, too.

  1. Define Your Escape

Are you getting away from noise and responsibility? Plan on lots of unstructured time. If you’re bored and need excitement, a beach getaway has plenty of that for you, too.

  1. Fill In Your Team

Make a plan for who will cover your duties at work while you’re out, and what they should do if something comes up. Reaching out to you should be a last resort when you’re at the resort!

How to Spend a Glorious Day at Grande Cayman

1. Start Off With a Sunrise

Whether from your oceanfront balcony or the seashore, it’ll be spectacular. Tuck your phones away and take it the majesty of the sun emerging over the Atlantic. It’s a daily gift.


Next level: Check the sunrise time here. Get up and out about 20 minutes beforehand to see the beauty unfold.

2. Fuel Your Morning at Starbucks

There’s a Starbucks right there at the resort, so you can get your coffee early. Stick around for breakfast. An Americano coffee and Impossible™ Breakfast Sandwich are tough to beat! Ever tried a Cranberry Bliss® Bar? Wow.


Next level: Hit Starbucks before sunrise. Enjoy java with a view.


3. Get Your Game On

There are more than 100 hands-on science exhibits for young learners here, plus more fun. It’s fun stuff for all ages, and you can find discounts by visiting them online. Older kids will love discovery zones for physical challenges, space discovery and more.


Pro tip: WonderWorks is best for kids 3 and older.

4. Turn Toward Turtle Bay Cafe

Competition will likely work up an appetite. Share some Jumbo Chicken Wings or Chips and Beer Cheese. Enjoy lunch favorites such as a Turkey Sandwich, Chicken Caesar Wrap, or Mahi Tacos.


Next level: Get your lunch to go and enjoy a picnic poolside or on the beach.

5. Rest Up!

That beautiful room you checked into is also comfy. Let everyone retreat to their own space, to read, watch TV, nap, or play a card game. Relax, unwind, and refresh for beach fun next.


Next level: Open the sliding glass door, turn off the TV, and relax to the sounds of the crashing waves.

6. It’s Beach Time

The main event — and don’t forget the sunscreen, hats, and umbrellas. Bring balls to toss or kick, a Frisbee, and all the beach toys. Tote the bodyboards, floaties, and baggies to collect shells and sharks’ teeth.

Next level: Take pictures. These are the ones you’re going to love looking back at because they’ll bring all the memories back again.

7. More Relaxing Time

The sun takes a bit out of you, even in springtime. Return to the room and take your time getting ready for dinner. You won’t have to go far!


Next level: Spend time on the balcony taking in the scenery for a bit. It’s a beautiful sight.

8. Dine at Due South

Split Fried Green Tomatoes and a Good Ol’ Boy Onion Tower. The Southern Cobb Salad and Charleston Crab Cake Dinner are unbelievable. Or get Family Style To Go plates, and save room for Giant Sharable Cookies and Red Velvet Cake for dessert.


Next level: Due South’s mac-and-cheese is incredible. Choose toppings such as barbecue chicken, sausage, shrimp, and more.

9. Unwind With a Movie

Your room is roomy at Grande Cayman Resort. Get comfy and pick a movie to watch together. Pop some popcorn and bring out those snacks you have left over from the beach.


Next level: Turn off the TV and take an evening walk on the beach before bedtime. You might need your hoodies, but March and April are nice.
