“Interesting cave”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The cave is used as a hurricane shelter and has interesting history. There are no amazing formations, but the structure is beautiful and the cave extends further into the bluff than I expected.

“Worth the effort.”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

Peter's Cave is one of many caves on this tiny island. You definitely need a car to get there. You can get there from above at the top of the bluff (Peter's Cave parking area and then walk down the stairs) or below from the bottom of the bluff by driving up the narrow lane marked Pete's Cave to the base of the bluff and then walking up the stairs. Note that the stairs are not your usual stairs. You will still have to climb over jagged rock. There is a very good handrail that greatly simplifies the climb, but it is still a rugged climb. While hiking boots are recommended, gym shoes would be sufficient. My partner and I easily did it in Tevas and Keen sandals. Closed toe shoes are recommended because of the jagged, sharp limestone rock, which is not as bad here as it is on other trails on the island. The
cave looked like someone might be living inside, as there were some lawn chairs and water bottles. The view of the sea from the top of the bluff just above the cave is worth the effort.

“Good hiking boots a must”
Reviewed April 30, 2008

Went to Cayman Brac mainly to dive,but since we rented a car we drove from one end of the island to the other,walking the beaches and the bluff.Bring strong hiking boots,knee pads,leather gloves,and flashlights.Peter's cave was easily accessible with rails and steps,but there are caves from one end of the island to the other.Usually we ran into them when we werent prepared to go caving,teva's and swim trunks,not what you want to wear with these rocks.
It's like the scenes from the movie armageddon,razor sharp and ready to shread,we found caves on the south-west end of the island that you had to really work for but it was worth the effort just for the view.Also on the north side you go from sand to rocks to jagged limestone,so if you plan on exploring make sure you have plenty of water,and the right gear,you'll find yourself getting caught up with the views and thinking why didnt i bring?

“My favorite hike on the Brac”
Reviewed July 11, 2007

As far as hiking on the Brac, there are some limitations. That said, after living there for 9 months, my favorite place on the island was Peter's Cave. You can hike up from a tiny road at the bottom and see a beautiful view. Hermit crabs litter the rocky, rough steps leading up. Definately be VERY careful because you could easily fall. I did this hike with my two small children (2 and 4) numerous times though. Inside the cave is pretty cool too. Bring a flashlight if you want to look around.

If the climb is too much, you can drive to it from Lighthouse Road too.
