Many tourists head to Cayman Brac dreaming of a peaceful getaway in which there is little more to do than relax on the beach.  While this is certainly a possibility thanks to the near-perfect, often shallow shore-fronts.  Within the 14 square miles of land also exists the oldest museum in the Cayman Islands, a nature reserve, and a historic home that is open to the public. 


Brac Reef Beach

You'll find a large selection of beaches to enjoy on the island. If you are hoping to have a long stretch of sand to yourself, you will be happy to know that several of the beaches are relatively secluded and lightly used. Click on the name of the beach for more detail concerning that particular location.

Sea Feather Bay Beach: This beach has fine, soft sand and just a few villas along the shore. You might find yourself all alone here.

Another option that beach-goers can consider is Pollard Bay Beach. If you're looking for a nice quiet beach spot where you can build yourself a sand castle and wade in warm waters, this is a good spot. It's sure to feel isolated, though this isn't the calmest shore on Cayman Brac.

Cat Head Bay Beach: This beach is on the southeast side of the island, a very quiet part of Cayman Brac. The coastal road of the island runs alongside this beach.

Landmark Attractions

If the nitty gritty aspects of maritime life interest you, you should think about visiting Cayman Brac Lighthouse. Cayman Brac Lighthouse isn't the most elaborate of its kind, but it is definitely worth a visit for the views and photo opportunities alone.

Another popular destination is Cayman Brac Museum. It is located in central Cayman Brac. Before the Cayman Brac Museum was a museum it stood as a bank, customs office, treasury, and then a post office. The front room of the museum pays homage to the building's past lives with reconstructions of the once-facilities.

Heritage House: Submerge yourself in local culture from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Natural Attractions

Salt Water Pond is one of the local attractions that's enjoyed by many visitors. Once designated as an Animal Sanctuary, Saltwater Pond was stripped of that recognition in 2012. Even so, it remains a tranquil spot to check out on your tour of Cayman Brac's south coast.

Another option you might enjoy is Brac Parrot Reserve. When a rare species of Parrot was wiped out in 1932, the people of the Cayman Islands knew they had to do something to preserve the remaining parrots for future generations, but what? It wasn't until 1991 when the National Trust acquired the perfect parcel of land to create this natural attraction: the Brac Parrot Reserve.
