Cayman Brac © Lee Shoal
Cayman Brac was the setting for Robert Louis
Stevenson's classic Treasure Island, and it remains today
much as it is described in that well-read novel with its dramatic
scenery, maze of caves, and many offshore wrecks.
Most people are attracted to Cayman Brac for the
excellent scuba diving; the newest attraction is the wreck of the
330-foot (100m) Russian-built Cuban naval frigate which was sunk
off the island's northwest coast in 1996. It is already the home
for a variety of marine life.
Fishermen come to the island to revel in the shallow
waters filled with bonefish and the deeper offshore waters teeming
with game fish. Those who simply want to relax can enjoy the
solitude of one of the many quiet beaches and make like castaways
in the most beautiful and unspoiled of settings.
