Cayman Islands consist of
three islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
Grand Cayman is 20 miles long and varies from 4 - 7 miles
across. Cayman Brac is 11 miles long and 1 to 1 ½ miles
wide, and Little Cayman is 9 miles long and 1 mile wide. The
islands are 480 miles south of Miami. Cayman Brac is ninety
miles east of Grand Cayman and Little Cayman is five miles
across the channel to the west of Cayman Brac.
Cayman Islands' increasing popularity is
due to word-of-mouth testimonials. There is political and
economic stability and virtually no crime. The tourists are
welcomed with open arms, not hassled or panhandled but
treated courteously and politely.
Cayman Brac's population is about 2,000
people. Caymanians are warm, friendly and sometimes a little
shy. The language spoken is English, but may be hard to
understand due to their American southern drawl and the
Scottish lilt used at the end of a statement.
Cayman Brac is scenically the most
beautiful of the three islands with its limestone bluff
rising to 140 feet at the east end of the island.
Wonderfully relaxed, free from commercialism, cruise-ship
invasions and man-made tourism. Not too commercial and not
too old-fashioned. Cayman Brac will get you away from
pollution, traffic jams, crowds, etc. It is famous for its
diving and snorkeling in the bluest of blue waters.
