In 1932 a massively destructive hurricane hit the Cayman Islands. It destroyed most of the homes. Over a hundred people died in Cayman Brac alone. Rebecca's parents found refuge in this cave but poor 18 month old Rebecca died of exposure and is buried here. Caymanians have not forgotten her.

This cave is very beautiful and easy to access. It has a feeling of reverence as the cave holds the grave of a small child, Rebecca Bodden. Sad once again that humans have defiled with scratching on the rocks. Definitely recommended to visit though

Just to realize that so many people were in this cave back in 1932 during the worst hurricane of their history is mind-boggling. There really isn't a lot of room inside but there are quite a few paths off from the main area. To see the grave of the 18 month old girl that died in there during that storm... More

Every Time I visit this Cave I think of the young girl that died here because of the 32 storm. Nicely preserved cave. Next time I was to explore the trail that leads to it from the north side.

This is a small cave and sad as it has the grave of a baby who died here in a storm. Very sad. You can stand up in this cave and walk around.

We spent a day of our vacation exploring many of the islands caves. We liked reading the history behind the cave, we enjoyed exploring inside and taking some pictures. One view above us resembled a heart, which got my daughter thinking it was a message from Rebecca.

This is an easy access ground level cave, you must duck to get in but it opens up quite spaciously inside where the grave of little Rebecca lies, people still put flowers on it. Not a super long stop, may take you less than 15 minutes, nice to go to just to say you have been there. There is a... More

This site was very touching because of the story behind it. Although it was a little bit of a struggle to get up there, I wound it very fascinating to go inside a cave.

We rode the bikes from Brac Reef Beach Resort to explore the area. Rebecca's Cave is a heart wrenching piece of history. Bring water and sunscreen. Lots of lizards and hermit crabs!

This is a cave where the locals were sheltering from a storm, the mother gave birth and Rebecca died.
