Don't feel like diving?

 
    Hike the bluff and look for the wild and protected Caymanian Parrots.

  Go rock climbing on the "brac" which translates to the "bluff" - where Cayman Brac gets its name.

  The brac rises to 140 feet at the eastern tip of the island which is perched precipitously over the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

  Rent a moped or a car and explore the far reaches of the island.  

  But, there are some rules to driving on the Brac...

  Make sure you keep one hand on the wheel and the other free so you can wave at everyone waving at you when they are driving towards you!

  Be careful of the islander that has decided to stop right in the road, get out of the car, and maybe go visiting. Just drive around them carefully - don't worry, maximum speed is about 30 mph, elective.

  STAY LEFT AND LIVE!  The rental agencies will tell you this.  Don't worry too much, the traffic gets up to about 30, maybe 40, miles per hour so there is plenty of time to get out of the way of those tourists who haven't heeded the four important words.  But remember, driving is on the left side of the road!

  Relax at the Cottage and experience the ocean breezes gently blowing and the sounds of the breakers on the beach while you watch the sunset.  Watch out!  You get lulled to sleep VERY easily!!

  BBQ outside on the veranda while viewing the sun setting over Little Cayman, one of the three Cayman Islands.

  Sit under the stars and identify some of the constellations in the Northern Hemisphere, such as the Cassiopeia, Orion, the Northern Star, and look behind you to see some in the Southern Hemisphere, including the beautiful Southern Cross...

  Burn a driftwood fire in the fire pit down on the sandy beach with the waves lapping a rhythmic tune and the cool evening breezes blowing gently.

  Sleep with the doors wide open that connect to the large screened veranda and listen to the surf breaking on the beach - aaahhh, so relaxing...

Don't want to cook in Sunset Cottage's well supplied kitchen?

 

 

Delight in visiting different restaurants on the island.  To name a few...

  La Esperanza

  Located on the east end of the island... where for a real treat, on Friday and Saturday nights,  some of the islands' specialty:   Jerk Chicken.

  Bussy, the owner, spends all afternoon preparing the BBQ and chicken so that when you arrive it is all ready for you....YUMMY!  I can taste it just thinking about it!!

  Then, there is after-dinner dancing outdoors on the patio overlooking the Caribbean Sea... usually to a live island band.

  The Captain's Table

  The head chef, Mark Beck, has brought his culinary skills down from the fine restaurants of Hilton Head... 

  Be sure to say "Hi!" from Sunset Cottage to Lenny Neckerman, the very entertaining owner of The Captain's Table!

  Aunt Sha's Kitchen

  On the North side

  Aunt Sha's cooking up some red beans and rice and chicken and potatoes or fresh Mahi-Mahi.

  Good island home cooking!

  Hotel restaurants on the South Side at the West End of the island.

  Drop in for drinks at the open air bars, or dinner, and meet up with the other travelers who are staying at the hotels and who have probably dived with you during the day. 

  The restaurants usually offer a rotating buffet every night for a week.
