Cayman Brac has very little sandy beach, it is mainly ringed with ironshore, so if you are purely looking for long, white sandy beaches it is not the place for you. However, this does not mean there are no places to go in the water easily without booties. One of the best places to swim is Buccaneer's Barcadere which has a step ladder bolted into the rocks and is a natural pool cut out of the rock - on a clam day it is absolutely beautiful and perfect for swimming. You can also get in easily by the old Divi Tiara hotel on the South Side, at Panama Canal opposite the Police Station on the North East end of the island, at the Admin Dock in Stake Bay on the North Side and without too much difficulty just east of Public Beach. I have lived here for 6 years and cannot say I have been to all the houses on the island, but certainly there are very few, if any, that have direct access to the water from a sandy beach with no rocks in the water - in fact the only one I can think of is the one I live in which is a few yards west of the beach at Divi! The plus side of the lack of sandy flats is that there is lots of excellent snorkelling almost as soon as you enter the water - those long sandy stretches are good for entry and exit but rarely have anything to see there!
