Located on the northern tip of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve the nine-acre Tobacco Caye was used for years as a trading post and fishing camp. Now, because of its close proximity to the Barrier Reef it is a frequent destination for divers and anglers. Many rustic resorts offering diving, fishing and tours are situated here. Boats travel daily to the caye from Dangriga.

Located about 25 miles east of Belize City, the Turneffe Atoll is the largest of Belize’s three atolls. It is home to several small, pristine cayes accented with palm trees, white beaches and mangroves. Only a few hundred yards from the Barrier Reef, the islands offer excellent diving, snorkeling and fishing opportunities.
Turneffe Flats (Northern Bogue), Turneffe Island Lodge (Caye Bokel) and Blackbird Caye Resort (Blackbird Caye) all offer diving and fishing on the islands.

Visitor Info

Although all cayes cater to divers, snorkelers, and beach-lovers, you can really choose the caye for you as each is different in size, depth of activities, facilities, types of lodging, night-life, and remoteness.
Transport once there is not a problem; you either walk, take a boat, or use a golf cart or bike on the larger islands of Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye.
getting thereOf course boat is the main form of transport to and between the islands, although several of the cayes have landing strips. Only Ambergris has scheduled flights. Boats leave from Belize City, or from Dangriga for the more southerly cayes.
