Caribbean Cayes & Coast Holidays

Shark Ray Alley, Belize coast

Deserted palm-fringed beaches, crystalline waters and world class diving

Belize's coastal allure is epitomised by its enchanting islands scattered just off the shore, the Cayes.

Nestled amidst turquoise waters, these islands offer vibrant seafood shacks, thriving coral reefs, and a laid-back Caribbean style ambiance. Whether seeking world-class snorkelling, exhilarating diving, or simply basking in island life, the Cayes offer an idyllic escape.

With over 450 islands and atolls adorning Belize's northern coast, travellers are treated to a plethora of deserted palm-fringed beaches and crystalline waters, a haven for beach enthusiasts. Accessed via scenic light aircraft flights from Belize City, Ambergris Caye stands out as one of the largest and most developed islands, running parallel to the majestic Belize Barrier Reef, the world's second-largest coral reef system.

The underwater marvels of the Belize Barrier Reef beckon adventurers with unparalleled snorkelling and diving experiences. Spanning 185 miles, the reef boasts a staggering diversity of marine life, including 70 hard coral species, 36 soft coral species, and over 400 fish species, including nurse sharks. Excursions to Hol Chan Marine Reserve offer encounters with stingrays and sharks, while boat trips unveil the enchanting world of manatees.

For the intrepid diver, the Blue Hole presents an unparalleled adventure. This iconic dive site, visible from outer space, showcases a mesmerising array of stalactites, limestone formations, and mysterious marine life within its depths, earning its place among the top ten dive sites worldwide.

After days filled with adventure, unwinding on the Cayes offers the perfect respite. With the sea breeze caressing your skin, powdery white sands beneath your feet, and the warm tropical waters lapping the shore, the experience is nothing short of paradise, a serene conclusion to a memorable Belizean journey.
