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.TripAdvisor property ID 2302242...Read more

The sheer and dramatic natural beauty of this island combined with a perfectly furnished, truly comfortable oceanfront home made for a vacation that we didn't even dream possible. Every detail of this immaculate home was taken into consideration, from the plush linens and towels (beach towels, too) to the kayak, kitchen utensils, decor, beanbags on the rooftop deck. Add to all this the sheer graciousness and warmth of owners Jane and Glenn (who even lent us a boogie board from their own home) and it is a fact that life doesn't get much better. We just dream that we will be able to make another Hammock Moon visit again soon!!

Your very own place on the beach with sunset views and undisturbed natural tranquility. It's hard these days to find a tropical place that hasn't been ruined by rampant commercialism. Cayman Brac is that place and Hammock Moon is the ideal base to enjoy this natural island.
The ocean here is crystal clear and abundant with sea life. You can snorkel right off the pad in front of the house or take the kayak out to explore further along the shore. I spotted the most bizarre fish I've ever seen while snorkeling outside the house: a flying gunard. Google it. A fish with legs - and wings!
Inside, you have a light and airy house with excellent views of the ocean and a rooftop terrace from which you can watch the sun set. Every night is different. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We stayed for almost a month and had everything we needed. The owners Jane and Glenn are super friendly and generous. They excel at making you feel welcome and are full of local advice and tips.
In sum - a wonderful place to explore a wonderful island.

Nestled between some trees Hammock Moon offers plenty of privacy. The only time you'll realize you have neighbors is when you drive down the street. The house offered great views and was plenty big for the four of us. The hammocks by the water's edge were great for relaxing. The snorkeling in front of the house was great also. The entrance into the water is rocky and had many sea urchins so dive booties are a must but it is well worth it. The owners were terrific, they even met us at the airport. They were very helpful in telling us where to get groceries, where to eat, the best places to snorkel, etc. There is also a binder in the house with all the info you need for your stay. The map of all the snorkel/diving spots was especially helpful. We booked a fishing trip that got cancelled and we had trouble getting our deposit back. When Jane found out she called the captain for us multiple times. She went out of her way to get our money back even bringing it to the airport as we were flying out. This house truly is a Cayman Brac gem!

My husband and I spent two weeks at Hammock Moon and it was a memorable experience. The beach house has two bedrooms, one bathroom and an open spaced kitchen and living room facing the waterfront. It is a calm neighborhood and the house is directly at the water with an inviting patio on the roof and in front of the house. We had the most beautiful sunsets! The house is equipped with everything you don't want to miss and even more. There is also a two-seater kayak (and live vests) which we could use the whole stay. The renters are an amazing lovely couple, who are taking care of things immediately when needed. Thanks so much Jane & Glenn! We enjoyed our time caving, hiking, snorkeling and diving. Overall it was an unforgettable time we had. I would definitely recommend it to everybody who wants to experience some "island time".
