About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
GEM of a home with its own private sea entrance. You will enjoy stunning views of the sunset, little cay and star-gazing from the crow’s nest deck and balcony or just relax on the covered patio in a hammock. This renovated 1140 square foot home has an open floor plan, a great room with fantastic views, a modern kitchen and island décor.
Nestled between Bamboo bay and the Bight, Hammock Moon is perfect for diving and snorkeling right off your private dock. Outdoor shower, line and dive hangers all set. Out the door is also a designated premium dive site with loads of fish and large coral heads to delight the nature lover in you. New, two person sea worthy kayak launch from the house.
You can also walk to the north entrance of the parrot reserve for bird watching. Enjoy a relaxing holiday away from tourists, crowds and hectic schedules.
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.
