Cayman Brac.

Known as “The Brac”, named after a Gaelic term for bluff*, Cayman Brac is a picturesque island nestled 90 miles northeast of Grand Cayman.

The island derives its name from the limestone ridge that runs down its center, reaching an impressive elevation of 150 feet at the eastern end— the highest point across the Cayman Islands. Renowned for its superb diving, diverse wildlife, and rugged landscapes, Cayman Brac offers a unique Caribbean experience. Stake Bay, the capital, epitomizes island life with essential establishments, including the government building, hospital, museum, grocery store, and the esteemed Layman E. Scott Sr. High School.
