Lighthouse, Cayman Brac

3.6
#4 of 16 in Historic Sites in Cayman Islands
Soak in the ocean views from Lighthouse, the island's highest point. This site actually features two lighthouses--a historic structure, and a newer model. Climb up to the top of a 43 m (140 ft) bluff for a chance to photograph waves splashing against the dramatic coastline. Follow informative sign boards to reach the site, or take an adventurous hike along the loose-gravel path. Keep your eyes peeled for brown boobies, a large seabird common to this area.
