About Cayman Brac

The island is named after its most prominent feature “The Bluff” which is a limestone ridge that lies along the length of the island. The word brac is Gaelic for bluff and locally the island is simply known as “The Brac”. The second largest of the 3 islands, The Brac plays host to an array of wildlife both above and below. You can enjoy numerous hiking trails to explore the rare flora and fauna, and if you look up to the canopies in the forest you may spot an endangered parrot, brown boobie or peregrine falcon. Numerous caves await to be discovered, notably Bat cave and Rebecca’s cave named after a young girl who sadly perished there during the 1932 hurricane. The Brac is arguably the most authentically Caymanian and has a rich heritage which can be seen at the lighthouse or the Cayman Brac Museum which being built in 1933 makes it the oldest museum on all the islands. The enchanting waters that surround the islands are full of life and mystery and as with the larger Grand Cayman, The Brac is a top diving and snorkelling spot with coral reefs and shipwrecks.
