The air is cooling, the holidays are looming — can you believe snow was in the forecast just last week? Now’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a break... one that includes sun, sand, and travel sales just for you!
Where: The Reef. Grand Cayman. 888-232-0541; www.thereef.com
What’s special: The Reef is the only resort on the island with all beachfront suites. Every unit has views of palm trees, the white sand beach, and the Caribbean Sea. Located on the island’s east end, it’s away from the crowds. The resort features a 1,600-foot stretch of beach, two swimming areas, two freshwater pools, beach volleyball, tennis, and a spa. Guests can also snorkel right off the beach. Grand Cayman is known for its diving (easily accessible by guests).
