Nothing is more relaxing than taking a breath of fresh air and feasting your eyes on beautiful sceneries. From an exhilarating view of the pristine waters of Seven Mile Beach to a bird’s eye view of busy George Town and North Sound --- all these are made available by the Observation Tower --- Camana Bay’s latest attraction offering to locals and tourists of the Cayman Islands.

The Observation Tower stands 75 feet tall, sits on a space of 784 square feet of real estate and located at the very heart of the Town Centre.

Anyone who wants to treat his eyes to a 360-degree view of Grand Cayman is welcome to come up to the tower, free of charge. It is open daily from sunrise to 10:00pm.

The Observation Tower’s design was inspired and crafted to reflect traditional Caymanian houses that are rich in pastel colours and are very pleasing to the eye.

Even more captivating is the journey to the top of the tower via a unique double helix staircase (two spirals that interweave but never touch). Upon climbing the staircase, one will be treated to a floor to ceiling mosaic depicting Cayman’s beautiful reefs and marine life, giving you the feeling of ascending a deep-sea dive from seabed to surface.

The mosaic in the Observation Tower was created to enthrall guests and let them experience the undersea life for which the Cayman Islands are well known. The sea life photography, which this mosaic is based on, was taken in water surrounding the Sister Islands.

Truly from the inside and out, the Observation Tower is an exceptional piece of art that every visitor will enjoy time and again.

Go treat your senses and explore the newest destination of Camana Bay ---- come to the Observation Tower and experience the bliss of seeing the view from the top.
