Quality selfie-snapping is an art form. Social media influencers and online “experts” make their Instagram and Facebook shots look just right with perfectly positioned selfie sticks and proper lighting. Your images, on the other hand, tend to have too much arm or not enough of an angle. But little do many vacationers know, you can mask some of the fails by simply having a snazzy backdrop.
Few places around the globe deliver stunning scenery like the just-renovated Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa does. From almost-too-blue waters to way-too-cute gazebos, the place often looks like it’s having too much fun.
To ensure your next impromptu photo session is a hit at the property, we enlisted the help of its social media manager, Marc Babin, to reveal, in his own words, the five best spots for selfies at the remarkable resort.
“Yes, we have white sand beaches and crystal-clear ocean water, but Cayman is also filled with lush palm and other tropical greenery. Pose for the perfect garden selfie under our cute garden gazebo, surrounded by palm trees and plants.”
“Fresh off a brand-new renovation, the lobby at the Westin Grand Cayman focuses your attention straight to the white sand and crystal waters of Seven Mile Beach. Don’t miss this opportunity for a great group selfie with the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the beach in the background.”
Pool Deck Paddleboard
“Nothing quite says, ‘We are here’ better than a photo with our selfie-inspired paddleboard. Located on our pool deck, this is the perfect spot to grab that selfie while basking in the Caribbean sun.”
Seven Mile Beach
“Rated the No. 1 beach in the world year after year, it is no wonder why Seven Mile Beach is the most popular selfie spot in our entire country! [It has] white sand that is as fine as the sugar in your morning coffee and water so clear you may mistake it for a pool; no wonder this is the perfect selfie spot!”
“Our ocean is famous for being crystal clear, so why not take full advantage with an underwater selfie? Whether you’re just dipping you head under the surface close to shore, or while at the helm of the USS Kittiwake, don’t miss the opportunity to shock all of your social friends with this unique selfie spot.”
