Ambergris Caye – The Most Beautiful Island in Belize

Ambergris Caye – The Most Beautiful Island in Belize

Ambergris Caye is the largest island in Belize and the main tourist destination within this Caribbean nation. San Pedro is the only town on the island, and it has been the hub of Belizean maritime trade for years. Fishing, coconuts, and chicle have been the historic industries on the island, but during the past thirty years, scuba diving and ecotourism have generated new, large growth in Belize.

From its beautiful azure Caribbean waters to the Maya Mountains and Pine Ridge, Belize offers an adventure for everyone. Stunning caves, winding waterfalls, virgin tropical rainforest, and numerous limestone caves all add to the rich scenic beauty of the island. Belize contains many ancient Maya ruins and temples that will entice you with their mysterious history. Whether your decide to go zip lining through the forest, cave tubing in Maya caves, scuba diving and snorkeling through the Belize Buffer Reef, sailing the cayes, windsurfing, or hiking through the jungle, you will find wonderful, unforgettable journeys awaiting you in Belize.

Belize contains the amazing Belize coral ocean system, which is the second largest in the world and the largest one in the southern hemisphere. It runs offshore, includes quite a few cayes (islands made of barrier sand), and is surrounded by astounding reefs. The reef lies one-half mile east from the Ambergris Caye shoreline and runs along the entire 25 mile length of the island. It has turned San Pedro into the diving and water sports capital not only of Belize, but also of the entire Central America. The Wonderful Blue Hole, Turneffe Destinations, Shark Ray Alley, Hol Chan Sea Reserve, Mexico Rocks, Lighthouse Ocean, and many other diving areas are all only a short boat ride from Ambergris Caye.
