Island Diaries: Leslie-Ann Daley

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT CAYMAN? 

From my travels and winter experiences, I have have absolute love for our Cayman weather and beaches. Bring on the Cayman Christmas breeze!

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK ON ISLAND? AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB? 

I’m an Occupational Therapist here in Cayman. Working with children with varied abilities has provided challenges and has been extremely rewarding with positive outcomes. Providing interventions for children and strategies to parents and teachers to help support our children achieve their full potential is simply the best part of my job.

BEST EVENTS IN CAYMAN?

I enjoy all events that include music. Great weather and live music is always a winner for me. Caymas - I really enjoy that it ends on the beach, Pirates week and Taste of Cayman.

FAVOURITE BEACH YOU LIKE TO SPEND THE WEEKEND ON?

I enjoy changing it up every now and then. I used to drive towards the eastern districts and along North Side to pull over on those off beaten tracks, they are quiet and perfect for picnics with one or a few friends. When I am not exploring, I have to admit I will usually choose a beach with a shower to rinse the salt off, so Royal Palms and or Calicos. 

FAVE THING TO DO ON ISLAND?

Snorkeling - Best spot so far is the tiny patch of island just off south sound; can be found across from San Sebastián. Sunday Brunches, watch the sunrise at Colliers Beach in East End, or the sunsets (on the west) also listening to live music. 

UP & COMING AREAS WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?

I would say the Lodge, they have random entertainment every now and then.. and the best jam night on Thursdays. 

HIDDEN GEMS?

My hidden gems are no longer hidden - back in the day it was Starfish Point. Having said that, do check out the South Sound island for snorkeling across from San Sebastián. 

WHAT TOUR WOULD YOU SEND A TOURIST ON IF THEY CAME HERE?

100% I would always recommend Stingray Sailing Cayman and Fat Fish Waverunner safari tour. My all time faves and I cannot get enough of.

FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP?

I don’t like shopping but I have found nice gifts from Hesha and Island Naturals!
