Cayman Brac

Named after the ‘brac’ or ‘bluff’ that dominates this cheese wedge of an island, the most easterly of the Cayman Islands is also the most authentically Caymanian. Tourism isn't the name of the game here. Instead, residents work in the quarries, on fishing boats and in other enterprises, as well as for the local government. While the island has (almost) all the conveniences of the modern era, it also has a laid-back, small-island atmosphere that's pretty irresistible. Visit for top-notch diving, a scenic hike or climb along the bluff, and little else.
