Activities on Caye Caulker Island in Belize
Bikes are available for guests complementary use.
The best swimming spot on the island is at the split where you can bask in the clear, warm Caribbean water. You may also swim or relax around our swimming pool. Caye Caulker Condos is located just steps from the split at the north end of the island. Our rooftop pool deck and the white sand beach in front of our resort are ideal locations to enjoy sunbathing or swinging in the hammocks in the tropical sunshine and sea breeze.
Walking on the beach is another favorite way to pass the time on the island. The white sand, crystal clear, blue and green water, the sea breeze and the laid back lifestyle of the locals make going for a walk a pleasurable and memorable experience. Arrangements can be made right at the front office for you to experience some of the best scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.
