Stingray City Sandbar is a site not to be missed. There are very few places in the world where you can swim with wild stingrays safely and in their natural habitat. Historically, the fisherman used to meet there at the end of a fishing trip and feed the left overs from their catch to the wild stingrays. Eventually, the stingrays gathered and made the sand bar their home. Therefore, the sand bar is a natural meeting point of the southern stingray in Grand Cayman. The stingrays are free to leave and are not caged, thus making this a remarkable experience. On the tour you are also given the opportunity to hold, feed and take your picture with the stingrays.
