Here's Wikipedia's link that describes Cayman Brac in detail. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayman_Brac Cayman Brac From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Cayman Brac is an island that is part of the Cayman Islands. It lies in the Caribbean Sea about 145 km (90 mi) north-east of Grand Cayman and 8 km (5.0 mi) east of Little Cayman. It is about 19 km (12 mi) long, with an average width of 2 km (1.2 mi). Its terrain is the most prominent of the three Cayman Islands due to "The Bluff", a limestone outcrop that rises steadily along the length of the island up to 43 m (141 ft) above sea level at the eastern end. The island is named after this prominent feature, as "brac" is a Gaelic name for a bluff. The Teignmouth Electron, the boat in which Donald Crowhurst attempted to sail round the world single-handed in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, has been left to decay on the south coast of Cayman Brac. Christopher Columbus sighted Cayman Brac and its sister island, Little Cayman, on 10 May 1503 when his ship was blown off course during a trip between Hispaniola and Panama. He named them "Las Tortugas" because of the many turtles he spotted on the islands. The Cayman Islands were renamed by Sir Francis Drake, who came upon the islands during a voyage in 1586. He used the word "Caymanas", taken from the Carib name for crocodiles after seeing many of the large crocodilians. Many people believe he had only seen the Rock Iguanas that inhabit the island today.[citation needed] During the heyday of piracy, pirates would use Cayman Brac as a haven and a place to replenish their supplies as there are a number of fresh water wells on the island and had many sources of food included in the local flora and fauna. "Diving: Of interest to scuba divers is a 100 m (330 ft) Russian Koni class frigate built in the Soviet Union in 1984 for the Cuban Navy. It is one of only a few sunken Soviet naval vessels in the Western Hemisphere, and the only one that is easily dived. The Koni II class frigate was purchased and sunk by the Cayman Islands government in September 1996. Originally designated 356, the frigate was rechristened the M/V Captain Keith Tibbetts, after a well-known Cayman Brac politician. The wreck is the only Russian warship that divers can explore in the Western hemisphere.[1] It originally sat upright at a depth of 27 m (89 ft) [2] with the deck at 18 m (59 ft), until wave action generated by a winter Norwester storm (December 1998-January 1999)[3] which nearly tore the ship in two. The result was that the fore section tipped to about a 45 degree angle in relation to the remainder of the still-upright aft portion.[4] and the midships became a debris field. The wreck's stern area was essentially unaffected. The frigate is located in a sandy area with generally good visibility, 200 m (660 ft) offshore (a fairly long swim) from 'Buccaneer', on the island's north side, near the western tip of the island. There are numerous openings in the upper portion of the ship for non-wreck certified divers. Many more openings are available since the ship broke in half. The site also serves as an artificial reef. Other interesting dive sites are Radar Reef, Cemetery Wall, and the Wilderness Wall,[5] all well covered in corals and with a wide diversity of marine life. Caves Cayman Brac also appeals to visitors of many persuasions besides divers. Caves are found around the island, offering spelunkers a glimpse of delicate underground formations. Steps and, in some cases, ladders have been constructed to allow visitor access to more remote caves. One cave, Rebecca's Cave, contains the grave of a young girl lost in a struggle against the ravages of the great 1932 Cuba hurricane." Rock climbing Rock climbing was developed beginning in 1992 and the island now contains about 100 sport climbs. Walking and Hiking trails Walking and hiking trails have been opened by the Nature Tourism Program which allow exploration of the island's dense Karst forestation. Unique flora and fauna thrive here and can be observed in the wild. Fishing Cayman Brac's waters are especially utilized for both fishing and the pursuit of big game fish”.

        We stayed at the Brac beach house for 14 days, this home is everything you would want and more to rent. Rosanna answered every question that we had before we went, while we were there, and after we got home, her responses were the quickest I have ever seen. They are an amazing couple. The home was beautiful, the furnishings are gorgeous, the views are spectacular. The water is so warm, the sunsets and the sunrises are gorgeous each day. We cannot say enough good things about the Brac beach house. I would highly recommend if you’re going to stay in a VRBO this would be the one that you would choose. We spent every morning, afternoon and evening sitting on their patio, and it was so comfortable. They are not that far from town or the grocery stores which made it nice . They were set up with everything that you could possibly need . Thank you Larry and Rosanna for making our vacation so amazing with your beautiful home. Paul and Mary

          Spectacular home and views

          We stayed @ the BBH for a week celebrating 25 years of marriage. We have rented many vacation homes over the years & this is one of the best. The home is spectacular with awesome views & very private. You can't even see the homes on either side & we rarely saw other humans. The only visitors we had were a very friendly puppy, a skittish, but playful kitten, some geckos & some doves. The owners even have some cracked corn to feed the birds which I enjoy doing @ home. The home is very well equipped & we had everything we needed to cook our meals. We found that we preferred the view & comfort right at the home and with the variety of spices, pots & pans & utensils it was an easy decision to stay in for dinner. The water was rough while we were there & we did not kayak or snorkel, but we had many wonderful hiking adventures & interesting experiences w/the locals. We ventured out early enough & drove to the end of the bluff for a stunning sunrise & incredible views. While much of the terrain is rough, we enjoyed the change & were always thrilled that we ventured out & pushed on as far as we could possibly go. We loved seeing the nesting boobys on our many hikes & really enjoyed watching the parrots in the preserve. There was a group of them that kept us entertained for quite a while & we captured some great video & stills. We generally ventured out early & then returned to the BBH to spend the afternoons & evenings on the enormous porch overlooking the sea. Every day was peaceful & we felt like we had our own private island. We hope to venture back again one day & if we do we will be sure to stay here again.

            Beautiful, Incredibly Appointed Home Away From Home Experience

            What a great place! We felt a sense of calm and relaxation the moment we walked in the door. The large porch overlooking the ocean was by far our favorite place to be. You can tell that the owners really love and take care of their home. We can't wait to go back.

            5/5 Excellent

              Fantastic.

              Great owner, listing as described - clean and well maintained. Looking forward to making more great memories there. Exactly what I expected for those who love the outdoors and don't need to be entertained. Brac is like Grand used to be - quiet and peaceful.
