Fun & Sun in Cayman Brac

Overview

Our adventures in the 1993 Suzuki Vitara rental car, driving 300 miles on a 12-mile island, tanning on the beach in February, eating conch fritters multiple times a day, lighting a charcoal grill in 20mph winds, laying in the hammock on the beach at night, searching relentlessly for the Harley shop on Grand Cayman during our layover to the Brac.Quick Tips: Don't bring any "formal" clothes. You'll need a bathing suit, a few t-shirts, and a few pairs of shorts. Don't worry about makeup or hair products either ladies. It's salty and windy constantly. Best Way To Get Around: We definitely recommend the 1993 Suzuki Vitara with 82,000 miles on it. The pleather seats are great in the heat. ...Read More

We stayed at The Turtle Nest, on the north side. It had a great island feel to it and had all the amenities, including a pool. There were hammocks out on the beach with palm trees all around. We're not sure if this guesthouse is still available for rent. The owners we met moved back to Florida, so we're not sure who it is run by now.

Aunt Sha's was the best place to eat on Cayman Brac. I highly recommend the kingfish and conch fritters. We would fly back down there just to have that dish again. The homemade key lime pie, although a bit pricey, was far better than any we've ever had in the States. If you sit out on the patio, you can see sharks during high tide. This is a definite place to stop on the island!

At our beach guesthouse, we didn't have access to the sandy beaches, so we headed over to the public beach access. We visited Cayman Brac in February, so we had the entire beach to ourselves. It was very nice and relaxing. The sand was white and clean. The water was clear, so you could see the bottom and anything around you.
