Cayman Brac is among the the best places to visit if you are after an active Caribbean holiday. It is far more rugged than Little Cayman, with just one or two beaches. The draw to the Brac, because it is known locally, is the diving and hiking available.
It really is around 80 miles north east of grand cayman vacation rentals, and is also reached by air. Cayman Airways flies a loop from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman to Cayman Brac, but not always because order.
In normal with its sister islands, the Brac has a museum, which displays local history. There is also a chance to view a Cayman Brac parrot in their natural habitat on the Brac Parrot Reserve. This parrot is currently found only on Cayman Brac, even though it employed to inhabit Little Cayman. It can be thought that the very last remaining parrots were wiped out from there from the great storm of 1932. The Cayman Brac Parrot has the smallest selection of any Amazon parrot and thus is probably the rarest.
It is possible to shore dive, especially in the calmer north side of your island, but you will need a boat to the better sites, which can be around 10 – twenty minutes away. Here you will find walls, ells, large schools of fish and sponges.
Beaches in the Brac are nothing like those located on its sister islands. What sandy beaches you can find have ample sea grass. Although there is one ‘good’ beach (that is public) on the south side of your island. Many of the hotels are available close by.
There is certainly more hiking trails here than at Little Cayman, that are well sign posted by white Heritage Site signs. This can be the simplest way to explore this tropical isle. The longest one takes three hours, but a majority of require either a car or possibly a bicycle as they are away from the hotels. Free guides can be found in the Brac department of Tourism and most hotels offer free maps. Proper hiking boots needs to be worn as being the ground can be created up of sharp ironshore.
