March 1, 2022 Viva Honore

Home to fruit bats, herons, wild green parrots and an abundance of tropical foliage, the 12-mile-long island of Cayman Brac boasts more than 170 caves and 1400 inhabitants. Named for the imposing limestone bluff, or Brac in Scottish Gaelic, that looms 140 feet above the sea, the middle Cayman offers spectacular diving at Wilderness Wall and Peter's Cave. Emerald green parrots flock at National Trust Parrot Reserve. To discover some of the island's secrets, take a taxi, hop on a bike or trot on foot.

Wow, what a find and time to remember. Tennyson and Starrie were so hospitable. May be the nicest strangers we have ever met. The History, art and the time spent with our daughter teaching her about sea urchins. Will always remember that and The Brock!

The Bluff

Bat colonies and deep caves, used by island residents for shelter during storms, are the beckoning features of this limestone crag that rises 140 feet above the sea at Cayman Brac's eastern tip.

Walking/hiking here was excellent, along the rocky beach seeing so much with the water, the bluff and the rock formations.

The limestone caves are a remarkable sight, and the fruit bats that live in some of them are very cute!! Wear sneakers so you avoid injuring while climbing rocks and/or the ladders.

A scenic, point-to-point trail along the top of the bluff with scenic vistas and opportunities to observe nesting Brown Boobies.

Great views and the bluff was really awesome. It's a shame there was so much plastic and debris washed up on the "beach".

Peter's Cave

One of Cayman Brac's top North Wall dive spots.

if you visit, remember : the '32 hurricane waves were crashing at the mouth of this cave ... and it's a hundred feet up on the broken limestone cliffs - down below, they all died ... here, a few survived

Parrot Preserve

Parrot Preserve - A must see is the 180 acre preserve which was established to protect the endemic, endangered Cayman Brac Parrot. There is a two mile nature trail for hiking through the Preserve--a good place to see the beautiful local flora and fauna as well.

Don't let the initial board walk fool you. This is a great (and challenging) hike, rough terrain but not much uphill. We all loved it.

Beautiful place to watch the sunrise and the brown footed boobies and do the walk along the Bluff to Peter’s cave.
