Buccaneer Beach

This small stretch of beach is rocky enough the water shoes are recommended. It may not be an ideal destination for relaxing in the sand, but it is great if you pick your beaches for their snorkeling opportunities.

Located in West End, Buccaneer Beach is on the North West coast of Cayman Brac. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. Those searching for a somewhat calm, but somewhat social beach in the Cayman Islands might enjoy stopping by Buccaneer Beach for a few hours. It's slightly off the beaten path, but it also doesn't completely lack a social atmosphere.

Amenities and Ambiance

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Happily, the off-shore waters are clear enough for snorkeling, so bring along some gear if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.
