The Cayes Guide
As stunning by aerial helicopter view as from the seat of a kayak, the cayes of Belize appear as emerald gems in the turquoise Caribbean. Here, off the mainland and out on the barrier reef, you’ll find some of the best diving in the world, plus other spectacular natural opportunities and occasions to savor the culture & cuisine in Belize’s beach towns.
This section of our Belize Guide takes you to and through the beautiful Belizean cayes, from small mangrove-covered islands to the much larger and more developed Ambergris, for the best of the local Caribbean culture and wild adventures out on the reef.
