Now is the time to invest in the quiet, quaint and charming Sister Islands
Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, Laid Back Island Life
There are two Sister islands, as they are affectionately called. One is Cayman Brac it is about 89 miles northeast of Grand Cayman and Little Cayman about 5 miles west of Cayman Brac. Cayman Brac is home to approximately 2,000 people with small populations, and Little Cayman is home to about 200 people. These islands are much more rustic than Grand Cayman and slower to develop. If you want to have a piece of paradise that is quiet and remote, then these are your islands. The most popular way to access these two islands is to fly on Cayman Airways or Island Air, flying daily from Grand Cayman. We can also fly over in a helicopter which is fun and quicker.
Cayman Brac: Brac is Gaelic for Bluff and is only 15 square miles. The Brac is 12 miles long and about 1.5 miles wide. The highest point is located on “The Bluff,” which is 140 feet above sea level. The Bluff is a limestone outcrop that rises steadily along the island’s length and offers visitors a chance to hike, rock climb, and bird watching along the rustic landscape. Cayman government is encouraging development on the Brac. As of January 1, 2021, there is no stamp duty for Brac as long as you build within four years. Also, there are no planning fees nor stamp duty on construction materials.
Little Cayman: is aptly named as it is the smallest of the three islands. Little Cayman is 10 square miles. Little as it’s affectionately called is only 10 miles long and just over one mile wide. The highest point is about 40 feet above sea level. Most of Little Cayman’s draw is in its impressive dive sights and unhurried pace of life.
