                                  Several dives shops are located nearby.

                                  Good snorkeling is located anywhere along the beach behind the house, for several miles each way.

                                  Several hiking Trails through the jungle begin in Old Man Bay. There are numerous caves along these trails and plenty of local wildlife, including parrots and iguanas.

                                   

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2001

                                  About the owner: Connie and Rick Ritchie Connie and I met the first week of college and have been married for 25 years. We bought this property in 2001 and named it 'Scuba Shack' because of the great coral reef and wall diving behind the house. Connie is a scuba instructor and I am a divemaster. We lived in this property for a few years and still enjoy it several months a year, although we reside in the US most of the time.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Old Man:
                                  Connie and I are scuba divers. We chose Grand Cayman because it has the best wall diving in the Caribbean. We chose this lot because we had been diving behind the house and noticed it was a great dive area. From shore, you swim directly over coral reef on the way to the north wall, which starts at a depth of 60 feet. When we noticed there was a 2 acre lot for sale on this private beach, we purchased it immediately. The amount of underwater wildlife is significant, but there are also wild parrots and blue iguanas in the area.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  This is one of the most private areas of Grand Cayman. The beach is great for beachcombers, as the prevailing currents come right into Old Man Bay. The beach is 60 to 70 feet wide, between the vegetation and the ironshore. There is a significant amount of undeveloped lots to the east, and sea turtles use this beach to lay eggs most of the summer. The property is walking distance from the Mastic Trail and the Old Man Bay boat docks. It is only about two hundred yards form the bat cave trail, which leads to numerous limestone caves, many of which provide shelter for Carribean bats.
