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. 

The Area's Beaches

You'll discover several beaches to visit on the island. If you are hoping to have a long stretch of sand to yourself, you're likely to be pleased, since some of these beaches are relatively secluded and lightly used. Simply click on individual names to get additional information about that particular location.

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 place to consider is Cat Head Bay Beach. A rocky coastline with choppy waters, this is not the most inviting beach for swimming or water sports. It's an isolated spot, you'll likely be the only one on this beach if you choose to visit.

Tiara Beach: This beach is easy to access, there is a public path through the trees off the coastal road. You can park along the road.

The table just below enables you to learn more details on the beaches located on the island.
