Although many folks visit the Bluff for the gorgeous sunrise photos, we rented a car from CB Rental (reliable & honest folks) and made it to the Bluff about an hour before sunset. With good tennis shoes the rocks weren't a problem, we just went nice and slow. It was worth it sitting on one of the big boulders feeling... More

Hike up beyond Peter's Cave for one vantage point. Hike the Lighthouse Path or drive up from the southeast end for another spectacular view, and/or drive to the east end of the south-side road for yet another breathtaking view from the ground. Amazing to think that the whole bluff was likely underwater eons ago! Be sure to wear good hiking... More

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
