This was a great opportunity to see the boobies with babies, see the fauna, and get some nice exercise in. Quiet area, well marked and not difficult if starting at the lighthouse and doing a short loop. Very hot at the top of the Brac...bring water! The views of the water from the top are amazing

The lighthouse is less majestic than many, but such a great reward after the solitary drive through the Parrot Preserve. Sea views are stunning...great place to watch a sunrise. But the cliff walk is the best. You can see such majestic big sea birds-the brown Booby and the Frigate bird ( man-o-war). Trust the signs when it tells you not... More

The Brac lighthouse is not like the lighthouses that you see in the US that are huge cylindrical buildings rather this is maybe 1.5 m tall not impressive. However the views are impressive.

We had not planned to go to the lighthouse, however got a little lost looking for parrot sanctuary. Views are beautiful, trails are a little under stimulating. Saw a couple brown boobies. Cliffs are high, pics looking down turned out well.

Interesting bits of information to read about the lighthouse and the birds. Amazing view of the ocean and the cliffs. There is a walkway that can be taken around the lighthouse.

This site isn't your typical Lighthouse, more like a tower. It does however sit on the most easterly point of the island at the top of the bluffs. Great viewing spot to look out into the ocean.

Nothing to see as far as the lighthouse goes, but the bluff views are nice. You can drive right up to the lighthouse.

Be sure to read the history displays. It is amazing to think about all of the shipwrecks prevented by this little light.

Visited last week of December. Absolutely stunning as usual. We got to see one booby bird sitting on a nest and the Christmas breeze was phenomenal! Always love this trek! It is a must when visiting Cayman Brac!

The view of the ocean from the parking lot is beautiful. There are several overlooks that allow you to get right to the edges of the bluff. Use caution! Don't be looking for a very large, white lighthouse that is several hundred ft tall. It's very small but serves its purpose.
