If you find yourself on the Brac…a visit to the Bluff is worth the time. You can visit the top which has great views out to the ocean as well as down onto the beach. Travel to the bottom of the Bluff at Long Beach to see the face of the Bluff. Rumour has it there is rock climbing on... More

I rate it a 3 because there was so much rubbish lying around. Otherwise very nice. walking area is made up of very sharp stones - if you fall you will sustain some very serious injuries. Otherwise very quiet peaceful. Take water and and umberella it can get quite hot.

Positive - amazing views from on the bluff as well as below it (at sea level). We got beautiful pics! Negative - the nature of the rock makes walking difficult in sandals (should have worn sneakers but was unprepared as we went "exploring" the island after we left our footwear at the hotel room). My bad.

Beautiful view, but you need to wear proper footwear due to sharp rocks everywhere. We happened to be there the right time to see the baby Booby Birds at the top of the bluff. I am not a climber, but it looks like an awesome place to do some rock climbing.

The Bluff of Cayman Brac is best enjoyed from all angles and from its lowest point at the West end of the island to its highest point on the East end. Travel along the North side of the island from West to East and watch it gradually rise toward the Caribbean sky, its sides pockmarked with caves, its walls draped... More

There is a footpath that extends several miles that you can hike. Observed not only the raw beauty of the cliffs but booby birds nesting.

Went in August saw a lot of the Booby birds a few babies From above you have light house and can climb it and see the top of the island. From below on Long Beach very rocky and can see the bluff from the bottom. You will need good shoes and water. Our guide Keino excellent

I explored the bluff from both sides of the island. On the south side there was a trail that went along the water. Easy to walk and enjoy the views offered by both the bluff and the water. Not an area for swimming but beautiful scenery.
