little cayman or brac island?

IM planning a summer vacation in Cayman, one week in Grand Cayman and one week either in little cayman or brac island. Which of the two is most advisable for a family of 4 with 2 children, 6 and 9 yo?

We love snorkelling (no scuba), no interest in night life and big/luxury resort. Thanx

Neither of these islands have big resorts or night life. If you like the beach, Little Cayman is much better than the Brac. Personally, as a non-diver, I think 1 week in either place is a long time (because they are both very very small and quiet) but I if I had to pick 1 I would say little Cayman.

Took a day trip via plane to Cayman Brac during a week long trip to GC a few years ago. There are almost no beaches and if your not a diver I think I would pass on Cayman Brac. We rented a car and drove around the island. There are some beautiful spots and a museum, but not enough to justify the cost in my opinion. I understand Little Cayman has better snorkeling and a few beaches as well. Personally I would stay on GC the whole time if your not a diver.

We just got back from GC and Brac two months ago. I would highly recommend the Brac for something different after being at GC. We loved hiking up the bluff and the views. Seeing the Boobie birds and how close you could get was awesome. I actually preferred the snorkeling in the Brac much better- unspoiled, lots of squid and fish and a few very interesting sea snakes.
