What’s The Vibe Like?
South Sound is a great place for families and young professionals alike. Due to its closeness to George Town, the ocean and schools it is a popular choice for locals and tourists alike. On a trip through South Sound you’ll see cyclists and joggers as well as people coming to utilize the Cayman Islands Rugby Club and the Tennis Club. There are coed soccer and Gaelic football leagues and there is always something to do. The people in the area are extremely friendly and can often be seen chatting during their evening walks with the family dog or baby in the pram. Additionally, there is a public park nearby, a public dock and a ramp to launch your boat if you’re a water enthusiast. Kite surfers can be seen from the boardwalk when the wind is right for them to take to the water.

There are also lots of activities going on throughout the year at the South Sound Community Center. South Sound is also the perfect area for sea turtles to lay their eggs and the community has banded together to make sure that their natural habitat is not damaged by the sargassum blooms or by new and existing development. Consuelo’s Beach is a popular place to hang on a sunny day and Smith Cove is widely regarded as a national treasure and the government has gone to great lengths to protect this unique beach and its surrounding environment. Another place you simply must visit is Pure Art – a charming “Cayman Style” house that has been converted into a quirky shop where you can find all types of original Caymanian artworks and souvenirs.
South Sound feels more “local” than the nearby Seven Mile Beach or some of the other districts that cater mainly to tourists and visitors. When you’re in South Sound you feel like you are in the “real” Cayman. One thing that you should be aware of – the rush hour traffic can be really congested. If you are hitting the area when the schools or churches let out a 5-minute drive from town can quickly turn into an hour-long journey. That’s island life for you though Bobo and it’s a small price to pay to live in paradise!
