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.
Consider staying in West End if you plan on visiting Rebecca's Cave, since travelers to this part of the Cayman Islands will have the benefit of easy site access during their time there. There isn't much congestion in the area near the historic site, perhaps because there are so few hotel booking options close.
