Beaches on Cayman Brac

Better known for its rugged cliffs than its sandy beaches, Cayman Brac is still a great destination for those who hope to spend their days relaxing in the sand.  If you head to the island's south side, you'll find nearly deserted stretches of shoreline with soft sands and calm waters.  Snorkeling is best done on the north side for better underwater sides, but the waters are certainly calm enough on the south side that you should always have your equipment on hand. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover a large number of beaches to enjoy on the island. If you enjoy having lots of space around you, you will be pleased to know that several of these beaches are relatively secluded and quiet. Click on the name of the beach for a detailed guide to that part of the coast.

Brac Reef Beach

Pollard Bay Beach: There's a few access points from the road but most of them are the private driveways of the beachfront villas here, so be careful how you get on the beach, lest you disturb someone's privacy. Just drive east on the road that runs along the islands south coast and as you near the island's edge, look for access paths that aren't next to residences.

A second alternative to consider is Cat Head Bay Beach. The sand is tan and littered with rocks, but the beach is long and visually stunning, good for a stroll or a picnic. The water gets deep just offshore and the current can be strong.

Tiara Beach: Here the water is warm, clean and inviting. The beach is covered in brilliantly white sand.
