ABOUT CAYMAN BRAC:
From brilliant reefs in pristine waters to exotic birds nesting on jagged cliffs, Cayman Brac is home to a wealth of stunning natural wonders. The island’s unique geological features and abundant animal life make it an ideal destination for a variety of outdoor activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, bicycling, caving, and bird-watching.
DIVING Cayman Brac offers some of the most remarkable diving in the Caribbean. With over 50 major sites, divers at all levels are spoiled for choice. The reefs offer radiant coral, sea fans, and sponges in bright shades of red, orange, yellow, green, and purple. At varying sites, divers often encounter turtles, rays, sharptail eels, angelfish, puffer fish, parrot fish and countless other aquatic species. Divers can also explore the upper decks of a 330-foot freighter that was deliberately sunk and made safe for diving. The ship’s features include a missile launcher, deck cannons, living quarters and more.
HIKING With diverse terrain, unique flora and fauna, and gorgeous views, Cayman Brac’s hiking trails are ideal for an adventurous traveler. All of the trails are easily accessible, with signage visible from the roadside. The two-mile nature trail through Saltwater Pond Reserve covers 38 species of trees and a variety of birds including the near-threatened Brac parrot and vitelline warbler. Or for a challenge, hikers can follow rocky trails up the bluff to reach stunning views.
CLIMBING Cayman Brac boasts some of the world’s most exotic climbing. The island derives its name from the beautiful bluff on the eastern end of the island (Brac means bluff in Gaelic). The limestone cliffs reach up to 43 meters (140 feet), offering unparalleled views. There are over 70 bolted routs on the island, from beginner to advanced, and the number continues to grow.
CAVING The abundant caves on Cayman Brac are home to amazing formations and unique flora and fauna. A number of the caves have historical significance, as they have been used as shelter during the rare severe hurricanes that have come to the island. Popular caves include Peter’s Cave, which offers a spectacular view of the south side of the island and the ocean beyond; the Bat’s Cave, which houses a number of bats as well as owls; and the Great Cave, which offers beautiful formations and large open rooms.
BIRDS A number of striking exotic birds have been observed on Cayman Brac, including the white-tailed tropic bird, the Brac parrot, tricolored herons, the magnificent frigate bird, and spoonbills. Some have formed permanent colonies; others stop by for breeding or on their way to warmer climates. Brown booby colonies can be observed on the lighthouse footpath all year round, but springtime is best for sightings of their fluffy white chicks.
Note to renters: to get the most out of your holiday you will want a rental car in the Brac.

We live part time on the island in our home on the Bluff and in northern california.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
Pristine waters, nice community very peaceful.
Very private, great location. Love the views.
Hammock Moon is becoming our home away from home. We just can’t seem to stay away. The tranquility of the Brac keeps us coming back. We live in NJ and the last couple winters have been extremely harsh. It is so nice to leave the snow-covered ground and grey skies for all the color of blue that surrounds the Brac between the combination of sea and sky. Just the solar recharge that we needed.
We lucked out this trip and the winds calmed down for several days and we were able to shore dive on the south side several times. We have visited the island on 8 separate trips 4 of them staying at the lovely Hammock Moon, a total of about 6 months. We have been told that the south side flattens out like a glass lake but had never had the privilege to see it. Amazing coral a must do if the opportunity allows.
Can’t wait to come back! Thanks again Jane and Glenn
My family of four stayed there for a week and had a great time. The house has two bedrooms and one bath that has access to both rooms. The deck was great for watching the sunset every evening. We liked the hammocks for a afternoon nap. Great DVD selection! I liked that the house did not have regular tv. It gave our family time to connect, card games and movies! Kitchen fully stocked with everything you would need to cook a good meal. We snorkeled right off the dock and saw many interesting fish, a sting ray and the gunard! Glenn met us at the airport and lead us to the house. The housebook gives you all the information you need for your stay. They have provided kayak with lifejackets, snorkel gear if you don't want to take your own, a cooler, beachbag, beach towels. Fully equipped and I would recommend! I almost don't want to talk about our great time because I don't want the Brac to change. Everyone is so nice and laid back and no a tourist location!! You must try Pioneer Bakery for their bullas and cinnamon rolls!!!!!
Stayed here for 5 weeks January-February 2015. Before going home I booked it for ten weeks Jan-Mar 2016, so yes, I had a great time.
Wonderful house, beautiful beautiful Island. If you want "civillization", gourmet food. entertainment, try Grand Cayman. Brac is small, quiet and happy. By that I mean people there are extremely friendly, seemingly unaware of "race" and there is no poverty.
The house has all the basic comforts. lots of windows, fully screened, so open them up and let the outside in. Good kitchen and bathroom, soaring cathedral ceiling. HDTV. lots of DVDs, good wifi. If you want more entertainment, bring a pc with content and a chromecast. Netlix and Youtube work fine.
But Brac is mainly about sea and sky and outdoor pleasures. Diving, snorkelling both excellent. The Supermarkets (4) are adequate and there are a few good eateries,especially Star Island, which provide takeout good enough to live off. Glen and Jane, the owners, are as attentive as you need thm to be.
I could go on but it's obvious how I feel about Brac and Hammock moon. Just don't tell everyone, I want The Brac to stay the way it is.
These are my pics http://jwskinner.net/Brac_Pics/
The House was lovely and clean, the owner called twice to make sure all was good, the weather was great! We enjoyed ourselves and totally relaxed my husband did not want to
go home. We shall return! Thanks again;-)
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Hammock Moon. Jane (the owner) was an excellent host, who greeted us upon arrival and checked in with us throughout our stay. She and her husband live on the island and were able to answer any questions we had prior to and during our stay. As the pictures show, the home is tastefully decorated and has a beautiful waterfront view from inside the home and on the rooftop deck. The home is conveniently located and everything is within a short drive. The shoreline is rocky in front of the house but a white sand public beach (we were the only people on the beach when we visited) is nearby. Even with the beach nearby, we found that Hammock Moon's rooftop deck was the absolute best place to relax and suntan on the island!
In addition to the fantastic accommodations at Hammock Moon, the island is the perfect place to "get away from it all." The lifestyle on the island is very laid back, the locals are friendly, and we never felt unsafe or hassled. It was great to dine and shop at the same places the locals frequent instead of the typical "tourist areas" on other islands. Since the island is not overdeveloped or filled with hotels and attractions, it is an untouched beauty. There are many things to see for divers, rock climbers, cave/nature enthusiast, etc.
This is an island you will not want to miss if you enjoy scuba diving. There are numerous dive sites along the island marked with a red stone and a mooring buoy. Most all of the sites are accessible from the shore but there are several others that are easier by boat. Make sure the check out Brac Scuba Shack, they can point you in the right direction for all your diving needs! (The home has a rinse tub and outdoor hanger for scuba gear)
Our stay at Hammock Moon and on The Brac exceeded our expectations and we hope to return soon!
A Few Other Favorites:
Scuba - Brac Scuba Shack (must try a southside boat dive)
Car Rental - CB Rent A Car
Restaurant - Star Island (cayman style fish)
Bakery - Pioneer Bakery (bullas)
Grocery - The Marketplace (we found to be the best prices/selection)
If you like magnificent ocean views, privacy, and stylish decor...a stay at Harvest Moon is suggested. We had a wonderful visit in May, 2014. Fresh red snapper on the grill was heavenly. Perfect place for a couple for a romantic getaway or for a family holiday. Thanks Jane for all of your invaluable guidance.
