The Observation Tower

Life amongst the clouds

A bird’s eye view of Grand Cayman awaits atop the 75-foot Observation Tower. One of the island’s tallest structures, it offers 360-degree views across Seven Mile Beach, George Town, the North Sound, and beyond. Free to the public, The Tower is open from sunrise until 10 p.m. (subject to weather conditions).

One of the world’s largest undersea mosaics

Just as impressive as The Observation Tower’s outlook is the journey to get there via a double helix staircase, climbing alongside a floor-to-ceiling mosaic depicting Cayman’s reefs and marine life. Created by artist Jim Hellam, the undersea mosaic is one of the largest installations of its kind in the world and evokes the sensation of ascending a deep-sea dive from seabed to surface. Guests can also take an elevator to the top, stopping on each floor to take in the view.
