Welcome to Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park

Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park

The Caymans are better known for their sea life than habitation on the ground, but for keen botanists or those who would simply like a pleasant walk, the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is hard to beat. A well-marked mile-long (2km) trail winds through lush, easy terrain, featuring almost 300 native species including roses, hibiscus, lilies and orchids - which bloom in late May and June. The park and lake is home to the endangered (and elusive) Blue Iguana, as well as a fascinating array of birdlife including parrots, herons, coots and the rare West Indian Whistling Duck. The nearby Mastic Trail meanders through the old-growth forest that once supplied early settlers with timber. The 26-hectare (65 acre) park is in the district of North Side, and is a 45-minute drive from George Town.
