Cayman Brac and Little Cayman

Settlement on Cayman Brac has been determined by the Bluff, which rises from sea level at the west end to a sheer cliff at the east end. Most building first took place on the flatter land in the west, where the sea is a little calmer, and then spread along the north coast where the Bluff gives shelter. A number of Heritage Sites, linked by hiking trails, are being promoted, including bat caves, the old lighthouse and a place to watch the sunset. Cayman Brac is blessed with spectacular reef and wall diving with excellent visibility.

Little Cayman is small and low lying with large areas of dense mangrove swamps, ponds, lagoons and lakes. The diving is excellent. Underwater visibility averages 100-150 ft all year. Bloody Bay wall, a mile-deep vertical drop, is one of the major dive sites worldwide and is highly rated by marine biologists and photographers.
