Cayman Brac Beach Resort. Best of the Caribbean
Cayman Brac is located about 95 miles east of Grand Cayman and just 175 miles south of Cuba. In addition to world-class diving which is what brings most visitors to the island, there is growing interest in spending surface intervals hiking the island’s nature trails, biking its uncrowded roads, exploring its numerous limestone caves, and even rappelling or climbing the iconic Bluff.
There are no friendlier people than the 1,800 island “Brackers” as residents of Cayman Brac are proudly known. Many can trace their family roots back generations to survivors of the 1932 hurricane that left no family untouched. The Brac is also a very religious and family-oriented community with probably more churches and places of worship than bars—which doesn’t mean that they don’t know how to have good times. There’s a time and place for everything.
The reefs and dive sites around Cayman Brac are largely very healthy with abundant marine life due to the island’s population and relatively small number of diver visitors each year. Its sites include sheer walls, nice swim-throughs, beautiful reefs, and two wrecks to explore—all taking place in seas with minimal currents and unlimited visibility. Our packages including afternoon boat dives now also include trips to nearby Little Cayman to dive its iconic Bloody Bay Wall – weather permitting.
The island’s lush green areas and marshes provide homes to many beautiful birds. Marked trails facilitate exploring the island’s natural beauty, including hiking up to the lighthouse. Most of the roads are flat and have little traffic, so the island lends itself to easy bicycling. Caves like Bat’s Cave, Peter’s Cave, Rebecca’s Cave, and more offer even novice spelunkers a way to spend non-diving time. And for the most adventurous, you can arrange excursions to climb up or rappel down the Bluff under the supervision of experienced professionals as a unique way to spend your surface interval.
The Cayman Islands are an autonomous British territory with its own parliament and a premier who acts as head of the two-party government. The British crown appoints a governor who is the official representative of Queen Elizabeth II. The governor selects the cabinet and has executive powers throughout the islands. Although the Cayman dollar is the official currency, the U.S. dollar is widely accepted. The electrical voltage is 120 V with standard 2- or 3-prong outlets, so electric devices from the U.S. and Canada will work as at home, without adapters.
