Tarpon Lake, Little Cayman BWI

While riding around the island, we stopped at the Tarpon Lake to look around. The water level was down several feet from its normal level but it was still worth the stop.

Another beautiful spot on Little Cayman. Nothing commercialized. Just the beauty of the island "au natural". Another must see place.

This is a small stop along the way around Little Cayman. There is an entrance off the road and a wooden pier back into the trees and lake area. People were fishing and there was a informational plaque to read. Cool to see and learn how it was formed, 20 minutes is all that's needed.

The lake looks very pre-historic. But good photo opportunities for birds. The dock has a railing only on one side. I wouldn't take children down the dock without supervision.

Neat fishing spot. Just minutes from LCBR. Used a local guide and it was reasonable. They supply the tackle. Catch big Tarps

If you love to fly fish, if you want a fish that puts up a great fight, if you want a personable expert guide-look no further! Chris takes you out at daybreak, supplies rod and flies, and tells you exactly where to cast to get a hit. You must supply an honest assessment of your fly fishing capabilities. The rest... More

The lake was very quiet the day I visited. No birds were about other than the soaring Frigates which are always a wonderful site.

The shallows looked like tea from the tannins from the trees...way cool. There are boats at the end of the walkway that can be used to paddle around...just bring them back to the walkway and tie them up. Interesting story about the lake-read the signage at the end of the walkway.
