The Best Birdwatching in Cayman Brac

While in Cayman Brac, you will be able to see various species of bird without even trying. However, between the breeding months from October to April you can observe between 50-60 species, both local and migratory.

The most colorful bird also happens to be the most protected and endangered-- the Cayman Brac Parrot—with green, blue, yellow, white, and red feathers. It used to dwell on Little Cayman until a hurricane knocked out the population.

These Technicolor birds can be found in the reserve, carefully monitored by the Trust’s Cayman Brac District Committee, which has developed breeding forests, trails, and an abundance of natural vegetation for the parrots.

Other less common birds to observe include egrets, ducks, frigates, and the white-tailed tropicbird, as well as the occasional flamingo and spoonbill.

Rock Climbing Cayman Brac

The bluff of Cayman Brac, a limestone plateau that rises 138ft about sea level, is the perfect playground for the rock climbing enthusiast. Covering much of the easternmost part of the island, there are over 75 routes to choose from. The majority of the climbs are only suitable for experienced climbers, but offer exciting challenges and exceptional views out to the ocean. As of recently, the climbing bolts along all of the routes have been replaced with Titanium Tortuga Bolts to allow more freedom and safety to scale the large formations of the limestone bluff. With some of the most popular wall climbs being: North Wall, Neptune’s Lair, Love Shack Wall, and Tsunami Wall.

Exploring the Caves and Mangroves of Cayman Brac

One of the surprises for first-time visitors traveling to the Cayman Islands is that the adventure continues far beyond diving and beaches. Cayman Brac is filled with natural wonders to explore, including caves, bluffs, and blowholes. Crawl through the slanted entrance of Nani Cave and shine your headlamps or flashlights around to admire the incredible rock formations inside the belly of the cave. Or admire the natural light flooding through the various openings at the Bat Cave, where vines creep through the open areas.
