- 3.5Food Scene
Just about 20 miles north of Belize City sits Caye Caulker, a 4-mile-long, sun-soaked island that boasts superb diving and snorkeling spots and a relaxed tropical ambience. Though the island is mostly uninhabited by locals, visitors flock to the restaurants, shops and hotels perched at the northern tip near the Split (the area where Hurricane Hattie parted Caye Caulker into two halves in 1960).
Like Ambergris Caye, this remote island offers a broad range of snorkeling, scuba, sailing, kayaking and fishing services to nearby sites located along the surrounding barrier reef. There are also some unique attractions like the manatee preservation site, Swallow Caye.
Even if exploring under the turquoise waters isn't for you, those who visit the caye say it's the perfect place to leave your watch behind, walk around barefoot and dine on fresh seafood.
You can reach Caye Caulker by water taxi or plane from Belize City. For further details, consult our guide to Getting Around Belize.
