One of our most frequently asked questions is why the sand is so white and powdery on most beaches in the Cayman Islands; the reason is that the sand is comprised almost entirely of the excrement of Parrotfish, who dine principally on algae and reef corals, which, eroded and sun bleached over millennia manufacture pure sparkling white beach sand.
