BOOBY POND NATURE RESERVE
This will be a special treat for birdwatchers and nature lovers. With more than 334 acres of land, this reserve is the only breeding colony of Frigate birds, and home to approximately 2,500 Red Footed Boobies. The guests are welcomed by the Visitor’s Centre building, where they learn all about land conservation and bird life. Many telescopes are installed in the upper floors of the building in what they call an “Observation Gallery”, where you can study the flying birds as a scientist does. The Booby Pond Nature Reserve also tends to the research and development of these and other bird specimens in the Caymans. Booby Pond Nature Reserve
SALT ROCKS NATURE TRAIL
Hiking may be the best and a more straightforward way to enjoy natural landmarks. Locals have made it a trail, but it was once terrain of an old phosphate mine, a railway and a corral for mules. The preservation part comes primarily for the sake of the Iguanas, which love the site and have been breeding there for some time; they even have their own crossing signs, as they have the right of way! Other signs point out to the roaming of birds, butterflies, orchids and tropical plants in the trail. We recommend wearing long pants and sleeves, closed footwear and bug spray.
