George Town

Overall Score


The southwest side of Great Cayman Island is home to the city of George Town, the capital of the Cayman Islands and a port on the Caribbean Sea. Coastal seawater is clear and clear primarily because of the lack of natural sources of fresh water on the island, particularly rivers and lakes. The citys water is used for its needs.

Many offices of financial and banking institutions are located in the capital city of Georgetown. There is a department for maintenance of cargo ships, and there is a terminal for prophylactic and repair work on cargo ships. The marketplaces offer their visitors a wide variety of merchandise. International flights are operated by Oceana Roberts International Airport.

The current city has a rich history. From 1790 until the 19th century, it was called Fort George. The administrative center of the Cayman Islands was under the charge of the British governor of Cayman Islands from 1863 to July 1959. Thereafter, it was the capital center of the Colony of Kaimanova Ostrov until May 1962. Since 2002, Djædjæstaun became the center of the Zamora Territory of Brittany.
