Belize: 7 of its most stunning islands
The Caribbean nation of Belize has more than 200 islands or “cayes.”
While many visitors are content to spend all of their time in the more heavily trafficked northern cayes, such as Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, venturing to more distant, southern islands, such as Tobacco Caye, gets you closer to the eternal deserted-island fantasy.
Getting to most of the country’s more “remote” cayes requires no more than a three-hour journey from Belize City.
From the unsurpassed beaches of South Water Caye to the pulsating nightlife of San Pedro (on Ambergris Caye), the seven stunners pictured above offer the best in Belizean island hopping.
