Parrot Preserve - A must see is the 180 acre preserve which was established to protect the endemic, endangered Cayman Brac Parrot. There is a two mile nature trail for hiking through the Preserve--a good place to see the beautiful local flora and fauna as well.

An easy walk over a wooden boardwalk. We saw quite a few birds and even a couple of the rare parrots. A wonderful nature walk.

It was so great to find these beautiful parrots. We went around 6 pm and they were all around. They're very loud so when you hear them, start looking up in the trees. It's a beautiful little walk into their little jungle.

Great for Flora/Fauna people. Take water and wear good shoes. We saw a big Iguana. It's a nice activity for dive off days.
