Cayman Islands Geography
The Three Islands of the Caymans
The Cayman Islands consists of three islands. The largest and most developed is Grand Cayman, and its two Sister Islands are Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, which lie approximately 89 miles east-northeast of Grand Cayman and are separated from each other by a channel about seven miles wide.
Grand Cayman: approximately 22 miles long and 8 miles at its widest point, Grand Cayman reaches a maximum elevation of 60 feet at East End and occupies 76 square miles.
Cayman Brac: covering 14 square miles, Cayman Brac is twelve miles long and just over a mile wide and has the most dramatic topography of the trio. Its majestic Bluff rises west to east along the length of the island to 140 feet at the eastern tip, ending in a sheer cliff. There are many mysterious caves carved throughout this awe-inspiring natural attraction.
Little Cayman: only 10 miles long and a mile wide, (10 square miles), Little Cayman is the flattest of the three Islands, reaching a maximum elevation of 40 feet. Its famous Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park has been called one of the world's best dive sites. Inland, the 203 - acre Booby Pond Nature Reserve is a RAMSAR site and nesting ground for the Caribbean's largest population of Red Footed Boobies.
