Commemorating a tragic event while incorporating a beautiful natural space on the island, Rebecca's Cave touches every visitor that makes the relatively easy trek.
The story of Rebecca's Cave is that a mother and her young daughter fled to the cave during the Hurricane of 1932. Although they managed to make it through the storm, the daughter came down with pneumonia and without access to help, she died there in the cave. Today, a small coffin marks her grave.
Along with the memorial, guests are treated to local fauna in the form of large hermit grabs and tiny lizards hopping about the trail leading to the cave.
The cave is well-marked and the trail leading to it is an easy walk. The path leads up a hill along a foot path and a bridge.
Rebecca's Cave is located in West End, so guests staying in this region of the Cayman Islands will be excited to have easy site access for the duration of their trip. The area around this site remains relatively quiet, perhaps because there are very few hotels close.
