The best happy hours in Grand Cayman

Updated November 29, 2023

Sublime sunset drinks aren’t hard to come by in a place like the Cayman Islands. From delicious ceviche to Aperol Spritzes to $5 beer, all chased down with mouthwatering appetisers, a myriad of enticing menus makes a solid case to lull you from your spot on the beach after a long day in the hot sun. 

But, what can you do as the sun sets in Grand Cayman? Here are six happy hours we can all toast to as the sun goes down!

Overlooking George Town’s picturesque harbour, Guy Harvey’s Boathouse Grill is a delightful blend of Caribbean & international cuisine, with a focus on fresh, sustainable seafood. Open & airy, their interior décor is enhanced with a nod to Cayman’s maritime history. Renowned by many as the best happy hour in Grand Cayman, seating is upfront on the first-floor deck, with prime vistas of the sunset overlooking the harbour.
