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 will discover a large number of beaches to visit on the island. If you enjoy having lots of space around you, you're in luck, since some of these beaches are fairly secluded and free from over-development. For a detailed guide to a specific beach click on the names of the ones you're interested in.

Brac Reef Beach

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.

Another option worth considering 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.

Take a moment to look through the following table for a list of beaches that you'll find on the island.
