Interesting Quick Stop

The rock formations and the short story about them are worth seeing bur the rest of the "town" is more or less a tourist shop. Good for a few minute stop.

Hell is a group of short, black, limestone formations. It is roughly the size of half a football field. The name is thought to have come from someone saying ’'This is what Hell must look like.” We had heard a lot about Hell and were told there was nothing really to see. So, we decided not to take the time... More

We stopped on the way to the turtle hatchery. Great place to stop for trinkets and T-shirts. make sure you get a selfie by the eroded limestone landscape. Keep you head up too, there are lizards in the trees.,

Was expecting more to our visit, and maybe because it was Saturday, nothing opened and seemed old and runned down. One shop open where we were able to get a postcard and stamps, since post office there was closed to get the postmark from Hell! Only saw one other couple but seems this place popularity has decreased over the years.... More

Small tourist stop in West Bay which will not take longer than 20 min. It is nice to say that you've been to Hell and maybe send a postcard home but a part from the famous formation of black dead reef rocks called Hell, 2 souvenir shops and a post office there is nothing more to see. People in the... More

A rather odd phenomenon! cute little PO to send your cards home. check out the odd dead coral that looks like volcanic debris.

The visit to Hell in Grand Caymen does not take much time, but worth the effort to drive over to see it. The stop should only take 10-15 minutes as the site is small, has a small observation area and a few gift shops. Of course, there is a post office where you can mail a postcard to a friend... More

I have nothing negative to say about this small tourist stop. The shop was small but had plenty of post cards. I mailed one back to the USA for $1.25 (card and postage). The "rocks" out back were explained to us. They are actually dead corals which is why they are black.

I guess lots of people like saying they have been to Hell, but after being there, I wouldn't go back (lol). If you are close, and you have time you'd rather not spend on the beach or snorkeling, then go to Hell. If you are in the Grand Caymans - spend your time on the beach.
