Activities on Cayman Brac

The most easterly of the Cayman Islands, Cayman Brac stands out for more than its small size.  It is the least tourist driven of the group, and in fact, tourism is not the primary industry here.  Visitors that travel here do so specifically to escape from the busy resorts and revel in the activities that make Cayman Brac the diverse destination that it is.

Without a doubt, some of the best scuba diving in the Caribbean is found in local waters which feature colorful reef and some of the best wall dives, but deep sea fishing is equally as important.  Many visitors will spend the majority of their days on a boat or under the sea.  On land, hiking, birdwatching, and rock climbing is a great way to experience the island's biosphere, while touring the small number of museums teach about local culture.
